It’s finally here…
This is the week Katie has been working towards for years! We’ve known it was coming and now it has arrived. I can barely wrap my head around the fact that our baby girl is going to graduate high school and in just a little over 2 short months start a whole new life where we won’t be involved every day. I can’t begin to tell you the spectrum of emotions I feel.
HAPPY. SAD. EXCITED. SCARED. JOY. FEAR. ANXIOUS. PROUD….
OLD (Okay, technically not an emotion, but a feeling)
#HAHA…You have to laugh to keep from crying. 😉
You’ll just have to bear with me this week and probably this summer while I digest all of this.
So for now I’ll say Happy Monday and here’s a peek at what we’ve been up to.
Our weekend was packed with activity and and next weekend and the weekend after that will all follow suit.
The graduation ball is officially rolling.
There’s no putting the brakes on now.
We did manage to squeeze in playing cards with Katie and a friend on Saturday night.
We taught Josh to play Spades and he did a great job of catching on quickly.
Sunday was Senior Sunday at church for the youth group and they were honored and talked about in class, worship and then there was lunch for them afterward.
Ten kids graduating this year…that’s a LOT!!!
Good luck guys wherever the future may lead you!
These are Katie’s “adopted” siblings. Hank and Hannah have the same last name as us and so the three of them have proclaimed themselves siblings.
These guys right here are so sweet.
Meet Molly (standing) and Ocean. They just love Katie and are two cutie’s for sure. ♥
Once we finished up with the festivities at church we went home for a bit and then headed off to Baccalaureate.
These are Katie’s best friends here in California and they are so sweet. When these three filed in to Baccalaureate they were holding hands and Mama got all teary eyed.
And no event would be official if it wasn’t captured on Snapchat!
This is a big week for our family.
Graduation is Thursday and that means Benny comes home Wednesday for a visit so we are excited for lots of reasons.
Wish me luck as I try to hold it all together this week. I’ve been really brave so far, but I think some cracks are starting to appear in the exterior and the mushy center may come out.

I can't believe it's here! I got a little emotional just reading about it! What a beautiful young woman you two have raised. She is just about the cutest thing in California with such an amazing mind. Hard working, hilarious, caring, and compassionate! I know you guys must be busting at the seams with pride because of the great person she is! I'll be thinking of you all this week! <3
Thanks Sarah!!! She just said the other day she wished you were here for all of this!! You are like a big sister to her after all!!!♥♥♥
