It's almost here...

Okay, so today we are going to take group senior pictures with the homeschool group in their caps and gowns.


I know that this day was coming and it's a good thing but there was something sort of ...smack-you-in-the-face-with-reality feel to it all when Nick came out of his room in his cap and gown. Suddenly, he looked so grown up. He looked about a foot taller and I felt kind of old. He was wearing a pair of Frank's dress pants and shoes and it made me think about how he'd put on Frank's work boots when he was maybe 2 years old or how he'd wear Frank's work hat.


I know that this is a good thing and this is all a part of life but there was a little part of me today that wanted to hold that 2 year old again.

Stace, been there twice! It is exciting to see them grown up and starting on their own, but how we miss those baby days and even their childhood! Even now with grandchildren, sometimes, I'd just like to hold my little guys again. :) Enjoy each stage though, it is a blessing in itself!

I remember that day so well. The day last year when my youngest put on her cap and gown and it smacked me so hard upside the head, I cried.

They grow so fast. Hugs.
