I'm going through pictures for Elizabeth's graduation video and I came across my favorite picture of her from 2nd grade. These two pictures are exactly 10 years apart! (sorry about the grainy look but I had to shrink them down to fit into the blog) Going through all these pictures is really making me sad. In less than two months she will be a high school graduate! In less than 4 months, she will pack up her stuff and go off to the University of Florida. Luckily, it's only two hours away. These next few months will be an emotional roller coaster for me. The time has just flown by. And, I get to do it again in two years with Greg. Elizabeth has been an awesome kid. She is a driven, well rounded young woman. She's graduating #8 in her class out of over 500+ students. She's worked so very hard and I do believe she's "going far in life". Despite all the negative publicity that her high school has received in the press, they have prepared her well for the next leg of her journey in life. We are so proud of her. I've been trying to get her scrapbooks done for her graduation. It's been fun looking back over the years. Okay, time to change the subject--I'm getting all teary eyed.

I got my first blog award from Benita (On Eagle's Wings). I can't figure out how to post the picture but I will work on that for my next entry. Thank you, Benita.

In addition to getting ready for Graduation, Mark is preparing to make his First Communion and Greg will be receiving his Confirmation. Whew. It's been a busy and hectic few months. All this happens next month. Yesterday, I spent the morning coloring my hair. It's no wonder why all those pesky gray ones are appearing lately. I went with a little more red this time and I really like it. Now I'm debating whether or not to chop off my hair. This is the longest it has been in years.

Time to get a move one. The kiddoes will be rolling in shortly and my quiet day is done. The good news is that I have absolutely NO WHERE to be tonight. Mark will be my one and only pick up of the day. These days are rare and I sure cherish them--especially with gas prices so high. ouch.

Have a great Wednesday.

making a scrapbook of your daughter is something she will cherish! You are such a nice mom! I'm sure she'll come home often and will miss you so much.
