Time to Look Back
Here To Play

In June of 2013 I finished my 7th year at the Milldam Nursery School in
Concord, MA.  Three of the moms - Tracey, Kristen and Polly had children in
the school ever since I first started back in September of 2006.  Each was
now celebrating the graduation of a youngest child.  I wrote this song for all
parents watching their kids grow up and head off on new adventures.  As the
children grow up there is time again for the parents to start new adventures
of their own.

Milldam hosts their annual Ducky Race at the end of each year.
Time to Look Back by Tim Seston

Walking along on the path by the shore
A young mother duck took her kids out on tour.
She said, "Follow me closely, I'll show you the way."
But she kept looking back so her kids wouldn't stray.

It's time to look back – Quack, Quack
It's time to look back – Quack, Quack, Quack
When your up at the front and your leading the pack
The adventure's ahead but it's nice to look back

With every new day she taught her kids more and more
Sometimes she just watched and would let them explore
Sometimes she would follow with these words of advice
When you're finding your way looking back can be nice.

It's time to look back – Quack, Quack
It's time to look back – Quack, Quack, Quack
When your up at the front and your leading the pack
The adventure's ahead but it's nice to look back

There are times in your life when you want to stand still
And look all around from the top of the hill
See what you've accomplished and what you can do
It's moments like these that I'm quacking for you.

Well time passed by quickly as her ducklings all grew  
They were off to try out something fresh, something new
And the proud mother duck took a breath, gave a sigh
Looked around one more time then with a wink in her eye

She said, "It's time to look back – Quack, Quack
It's time to look back – Quack, Quack, Quack
When your up at the front and your leading the pack
The adventure's ahead but it's nice to look back."
