Today is the last day of school for my girls. I can’t believe believe they have now completed 2 years of High School with 2 to go………YIKES.
I have these bittersweet moments, when I’m so teary about them growing up and not being my little girls. Then I embrace their independence and growing a bit more mature, and I’m off and running in a different direction.
I do believe it is our job as parents to raise our children to become strong and independent so that they may leave us and spread their wings. This comes with ups and downs and tears and yet, oh so much joy.
It has been a good year, with good grades, many awards and high praise. Both girls are a little bit wiser and are learning from those times when they stumbled. We will be in full blown summer mode tomorrow, no summer school, no virtual school, no CC dual enrollment and because of their age, no jobs……….just time to sleep in, get a tan, play some softball and soccer, text, talk, watch movies, typical teen stuff.
So here were my babies just 6 years ago, I wanted first day of school, but I’m too lazy to go dig one out and scan it, honestly.
Have a great summer Caitie and Adrienne………….so much new will be coming in 10 short weeks………….next year………more college decisions, can I take my vacation then?
