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.
