Manic: The roller coaster ride we experienced this last school year! Talk about milestones and the ups and downs of life, this year had it all!
Managed: Catching my breath to take a look back!
…and a contract for him to sign and uphold as we entrusted him out onto the roadways…
January & February:
Our son gets his very first job 7 minutes into the interview, that he insisted on securing himself (I offered to call my many contacts that own businesses) and is now a sandwich artist at Subway. He is actually scheduled to work 30 hours this week! Guess they like him.
And….how did our girl change this much in just 9 months?!…..
I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since our son is now 6’1! But it happens so fast and as I proceed through this month, we have yet another milestone upon us as our lovely lady travels without her parents for the first time (she is thrilled about this) in the care of her show choir as they go to their own Nationals competition next week in Florida! I better pack some tissue for myself at the airport. I am so proud of this girl and her amazing show choir…
See what I mean about a roller coaster ride? Whew! Mostly fun, I must say! And tonight as I attend the high school graduation of a few good gal pals who have babes leaving the nest, I will stop and reflect on the two years that I have left of high school with my first born. I’m holding on and taking in every thrilling minute with Kleenix for some of the turns, laughs for some of the dips and a huge sense of gratitude for the entire ride. I am thankful as I close out school year 2014 and brace myself for the next one. Cheers!
