this is just the beginning...

Well, she did it!  She graduated, and I couldn’t be happier for her.  I know she was proud of herself too…she couldn’t stop smiling as she took the short walk up to the podium to accept her fake diploma (she will get the real one in a few weeks) from the Headmaster of her school.  I attempted to take pictures, but couldn’t keep the camera from shaking. Today was a momentous day for me too…I was, essentially, watching my baby march forward to become an adult. 

And ready or not…it is happening.

I think I will just hold on to those images of her as a baby for one more day…I’m simply not ready to let go yet.


Until the next time…I’ll be flipping through baby albums.
