Great Youthful Progress

Our six year old daughter made great progress this school year.   At the beginning of the school year, she could only read a few words, write only her name  and count.  After a year of kindergarten, she can read, write and do simple math.  In addition, she scored her first goal in soccer and she just starting riding a bike without training wheels.  It's been a terrific year for our daughter.
Now that I'm older, it seems to take several years before an noticeable advancement occurs. (For example, it's taken me almost four years to lose 10% of my weight versus a year in my youth.)    In the worst case, there may be no change or even a decline after years of effort. 
I sure miss those times when there was clear advancement every year in school, skills, finances or other area.
