Aubrey Graduates from Shoal Creek Elementry

I can hardly believe that my daughter is going into Middle School. Here in Liberty they have this big "graduation" if you will. Big presentation. Refreshments the works. I suppose because Aubrey is my first and only daughter that it is a little sad. They put on this slide of show and as I stood there that night and watched her baby picture and then a current photo flash across the screen, I was transported into the future. And I saw her High school graduation and going on to college and then getting married and starting a family of her own.... And yes, I started to get a little teary-eyed. It just seems like yesterday that Warren and I brought her home from the hospital. People always tell you to enjoy the time that you have with your kids, lots of people told me that but I realized I never really believed them. And sure enough I look at my kids and miss those days of diapers and feedings and going to playgroups and all the first that they have. But at the same time I realize that we are going to have so many different kinds of first now......First day of Middle School, First broken heart, First day of YM/YM, getting Driving License, the first time they really test their faith on their own........
And I am truly excited to see my children's life unfold but I will relish each and every day with them or at least that is my goal.


  1. I can't believe how grown-up Aubrey is! She is so beautiful! That is so exciting to have her at that age.

  2. She is such a beauty! Time is just flying by isn't it? I hate it!
    Glad to see you blogging!

  3. Hi Hragyils!! This is the Jones', just wanted to say hi. Congrats on Aubrey's graduation, they grow up so fast, it is crazy. Hope you guys are doing well :)

  4. I'm sorry I wasn't able to be there. Grandchildren grow up too fast. I hope I will be able to be at the next major event.
