Time to Look Back
Here To Play
In June of 2013 I finished my 7th year School
in Concord, MA.  Three of the moms - Tracey,
Kristen and Polly had children in the school
when I started back in September, off to
kindergarten.  Luke and Owen head off to
kindergarten in September 2014.  This song
was written 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

But she kept looking back so her kids wouldn't stray.

It's time to look back – Quack, Quack

Sometimes she just watched and would let them explore
Sometimes she would follow with these words of advice

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."
