The Last of……………

September 13, 2010 Uncategorized 5

So much excitement in having my girls being Seniors this year, but also those feelings of “the last”, as in we are approaching the last Homecoming game and dance they will have.  Caitie has begun looking for a dress, it’s the last time we’ll be doing this for high school.  Last Friday was the last first Pep Rally of the Football Season.  Seniors rule the school and sported many home made t-shirts, and banners and things stating”We Own This”…..good times.
I am not one to hang on to all the sentimental reasons I will miss them going away to college, I’m a realist and I know our job as parents is to give them that solid base and give them wings to fly off and grow on their own. 
It’s really a whole new emotion.  I think I need to take more pictures!!!

    There are going to be lots of “lasts” in the next 9 months. But then there will be lots of “firsts” soon after. And I agree with you about our jobs as parents. But even knowing that, when it’s actually time to set them free, it can be a little harder than you might have thought it would be. But if you keep that sentiment in mind, it gets easier pretty quickly šŸ˜‰

    Enjoy this year, it’s going to fly by. We’ve spent the last two weekends feathering Cait’s new nest in Dallas. That last goodbye was oh so bittersweet. We are so proud of her, but knowing that she won’t be coming home for the summer anymore is rough. But you are right, that is our job as parents. Have a wonderful Senior year with your girls šŸ™‚ Kat
