I have determined the older I get the faster time passes by. I look at my calendar on my phone and I have red lines under nearly every weekend from now until the end of June. It’s crazy to have that much going on, and then I realize why I’m so busy. I have a daughter graduating this year, another turning 11 years old and a husband that will be 40—all this month! No wonder my days are full, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.
As I mentioned, Ashley is graduating this year. She is a senior at Saginaw High School. We are headed out this weekend to watch one of her last volleyball tournaments. Then we will be getting her ready for prom and graduation. I can’t believe it’s actually here. I think all parents sit back and wonder how it all happened. Seems like yesterday she was learning to walk and talk, and then we were sending her off to kindergarten. Junior high came and went—thank goodness, those were some years. Now, in just a couple of weeks she’ll be standing on stage in her cap and gown receiving her diploma awaiting a world she has yet to discover.Add a comment
