Graduation

I remember the day I got these pictures back from her preschool teacher. They brought me to tears (surprise, surprise). I also remember thinking that seeing her in her high school cap and gown would crush me. But, I didn’t have to worry about that for 14 years.

I’ve been dreading graduation for months. I’ve been through this before and I know that even though I’m still their mom and they’re still my “babies”, things just change. Of course the feelings don’t change, just the day to day activities that we’ve been doing forever. Like I said in Emma’s graduation post, it’s not a bad change just different.

I lasted without tears until this next part (SAME as Emma’s graduation)

So even though I got a little teary eyed I really am so excited for her!!

It was upside down and it made us laugh. She really is a very smart girl.ย 

I am SO proud of her and I know that she will go on to do great things in life.

And I hope she knows that where ever life brings her, she will always have this support system who will love her and be there for her no matter what.

Happy Graduation Megan Mackenzie!!

This Moment

She was sitting on the couch while I was putting Lucy’s lunch together this morning. I turned and saw her staring at me. She smiled and I burst into tears. It’s gonna be a long week. Graduation tomorrow.

May Little Things

Just a few pictures from May so I don’t forget

We found an awesome park close by. We plan on spending lots of time here once school gets out.

Megan’s chorus had their senior night and I pretty much cried throughout the entire thing. When her friend Kamryn sang I Will Always Love You I pretty much lost it. Her voice is amazing!! Her friend Lexi sang Thank God for Small Towns and I cried through that one too. It’s safe to say that I’ll be a blubbering mess at graduation and will probably embarrass her and my entire family. Ha!

Can’t forget Lucy’s Memorial Day program. I usually cry through that one too. This year Beckett kept me too busy to get teared up. He finally met Patrick (one of the babies that Megan and Chloe babysit for). It did hit me that I won’t be at the elementary school for this program for 4 years!! So sad!!

A few more photos from the month:

That pretty much wraps up May. Megan is out of school and busy having fun with her friends. Emma is done too and getting ready to hit Iceland next week with Tess. Chloe and Lucy have a couple of more weeks but I know that they’re eager to finish up. We have a fun summer planned and we are all more than ready to get to it!

One more thing, scroll back up and look at that last picture of Beckett’s face. How cute is he?!?!?!?!
