Go round and round, round and round. And every year that B picks up speed!!! How is it nearing the end of May already? For. The. Love.
Today in Mass we celebrated the graduates and the gift of the Holy Spirit. A good friend just finished her DOCTORATE along with those high schoolers and college kids, so it was fun. Our own graduate plans to forgo the ceremony here for a long weekend to North Carolina on his bike with friends. Considering the kid has been finished with school since December and working full-time since then I can understand his reluctance to participate. However………….mama has extracted a solid promise to get some time in with him for some grad pics in his cap and gown and maybe his announcements will only be a month late! Either way, there is no denying we are heading into a whole new season of life in our little casa.
We shall endure the end of year band concert, 8th grade graduation, last project of 7th grade, celebrate Memorial day and summer planning to round out May and early June. All as we prep for a two week vacation in New Hampshire this July. Minus one kid. Plus one dog. Should be interesting.
I am hoping to squeeze in a weekend trip to our old city to visit with friends before July and somehow just made a sushi date with a girlfriend this week amongst the mayhem of May.
But it’s all good. This season of watching so many of our “babies” graduate high school and college, get married, get engaged and go off on a host of adventures. That’s what life is all about, right? Raise ’em up. And send them off.
