Over the weekend, my oldest graduated from high school. The years flew by, and it felt a bit surreal that she was really as old as she is. I thought for sure I would be crying all the way through. I was quite surprised that I only cried once. She is part of a big class, and was feeling anxious about walking in the ceremony. The processional was several minutes long, and for a quite awhile I did not see her. When I finally spotted her I was overcome with emotion and relief. Once the ceremony started, I had stopped crying and enjoyed watching the class of 2015 get their diplomas.
This week is also dance recital week. My youngest has literally been dancing since she was in diapers. She started just after she turned two, because she wanted to be like her big sister. My oldest danced for 8 years, and stopped at the end of 6th grade. My youngest is on her 12th year, and 11th recital. At our annual dance banquet she received her 11 yr recital trophy. But the time she is a senior in high school, she will have been dancing for 16 years.
Are you celebrating anything this month? I would love to hear about it.
