It Was Just Yesterday...

It was just yesterday that I hurriedly left the classroom and rushed to my car so no one would see me crying.

. I had taken Jack to his first day of kindergarten and gotten him all seated and settled with his "big boy" school supplies stowed away.  I think I ran over about five mothers as I ducked my head and darted from the schoolroom before the floodgates opened. I sat alone in my car and cried. I told myself, he would be graduating before I knew it...
...and sure enough, before I knew it...
. .
I'm crying again.

Thanks Alan – yes, I tell him all the time that I can’t wait to see how he turns out – He is going to be an awesome MAN.

He’s precious, Cheryl. He will always be your baby…BTW, I have a couple of eligible young ladies in my house….

My five year-old, Finn, finished his last day of preschool today…I can’t quite imagine him graduating from high school yet, but thank you for the heartfelt reminder to enjoy every minute! Boys RULE!

Congratulations Jack! Cheryl, I feel your pain. On the Boys Rule well I wouldnt know about that one as GIRLS RULE in the Loredo household. Maybe I should have a “boy” to see if they do rule. (LOL!)

This made me tear up…and my kids are 2 and 6 months. Time does fly…my girl is already asking when she can go to school. Our babies will always be our babies even when we can’t hold them in our laps anymore…

Cheryl- you wont be the only one crying. We are all going to miss him but at the same time I cant wait for all the *&%# he is gonna raise at TCU. He may need his aunt Hedy to come up for a little help!
