One one week away...

Only one week until my baby girl graduates High School.  It has been a couple of weeks of Mama Drama as we have had some wonderful celebrations and events to close out her Senior Year.  I am not a big crier, but this last couple of weeks finds me weepy more than I could have imagined!  We started the "Senior Moments" with the Senior Banquet held by our church.  It was one of those evenings where you realize exactly where you are in this season of endings and beginnings.  That was followed by a fun day when the parents snuck into the High School and decorated the Seniors lockers and filled them with fun gifts (see the photo at left!).  This past Sunday was Senior Recognition Day at our Church, where all the Seniors wore their respective caps and gowns.  It was so neat to see how many different high schools were represented!   Then we had a Senior Parent breakfast which was a time to presented our Seniors with some special, sentimental gifts and letters written to them by special people in their lives.  The next day (and last official day of school for Seniors) was Awards Day and that wrapped up with the Junior-Senior Reception.  Of course, the next week seems to have some event or party planned every day to keep things hopping. 

I feel so torn and it is truly a bitter sweet season of life.  I am so proud of DD and all she has accomplished and excited for her to see what the future holds... but in all honesty...I am sad for me!  She and I are so close, I can't imagine that my baby girls is ready to fly!  I know she is competent to fly...I just don't think I am ready.  Y'all think about me this week...


  1. Aw...this makes me sad and I don't even really know y'all! I guess just hug her neck all you can.

  2. Congratulations to your daughter! And, congrats to you for all of the love, support and hard work you gave over the years. The best of luck to both of you!

  3. I don't even want to think about all those milestones. Eldest graduated 5th and Eldest Daughter finished kindergarten and 1st. Hopefully this will cheer you,

  4. I left you an award on my blog! I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Dearest Michelle, thank you so much for following my blog. I am so pleased to find yours, and I look forward to reading more. Your daughter is lovely.


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
