I’ve had Tyler’s graduation announcements for a couple of weeks now, but I have not been able to get myself to sit down and address them because I think I am in denial about the whole thing! I feel like it was just yesterday that I dropped him off to kindergarten and I remember with my first two I was more than ready to send them off, but with Tyler I actually cried when I got in the parking lot after taking him to his class. How is it that I will no longer have to go to school plays, guitar concerts, choir concerts, soccer games or visits with the councilors to see if we are all on track to graduate, help with science fair projects or excusing absences and tardies, or just surprising my kids and pulling them out of class to have lunch with me? While most of those things I dreaded at the time, now that they will no longer be mandatory I think I am going to miss it! Lets be honest, I will Mostly miss the kids playing hooky and hanging out with me part… but really how is it all going to be over in a few short weeks?
So here I sit addressing my last high school graduation announcements and I may or may not have shed a tear or two, So If you are one of the lucky ones to receive one of these announcements, know that it could very well have been actually sealed with my very own tears…LOL I’m kidding…OR am I???
