It’s been a crazy-busy month around here as my daughter wraps up her senior year of high school. As of this writing we are two days away from the actual graduation ceremony, but at this point she has officially completed her required education. She is just plain excited – to be done with high school, to be heading off to college in the Fall, to be entering a new phase of life. I’ve been a little emotional, and honestly it’s hard to explain exactly why – I’m not sad, though this time does indeed signify her passage into adulthood. I’m very, very happy for her, and extremely proud of her… but maybe just a little blue that my role in her life is changing. I’ve had to consciously remind myself that this time is not about me and my emotions – it’s about her, and her accomplishments. And I’m very, very proud of the young lady she has become, so, onward and upward! And congratulations to my beautiful daughter!

(P.S. – her stunning senior pictures were taken by Randy Shebek of Des Moines, Iowa, owner of Great Life Photography. What a wonderful experience it was to work with Randy!)

    Congrats to your daughter on her graduation. I agree with Pam. She will take all you have taught her and and embark on an incredible journey.

    And that grad photo is so beautiful. What a beautiful smile.

    Thank you for this post! My daughter is graduating today and I can hardly believe we’re here already. Where did the time go? Like you I’m SO proud of her accomplishments and a bit emotional as well. But…we apparently did at least a few things right since they are off to college!

    Congratulations to you and your daughter!

    Thank you all for the kind comments – and Toby, congrats to you and your family! We got through the graduation with only a couple of tears shed (LOL)… I just marvel at how quickly time marches on.
