A Month of Milestones

Family Sports

This is a bittersweet month for me.

Lot's of different milestones for my baby girl, Madison.

She is a senior and will be graduating from high school at the end of the month.

While I am sooo happy for her and excited for her future, I am still sad that it is the end of an era. She has attended a fabulous Catholic High School  (as did Tyson), and it's sad to see our time at the high school end.

The first milestone she (we!) celebrated this past weekend, was her last Prom!

We used my brother's backyard to host a group of Madi's friends/dates and their parents for pictures. It was a lot of FUN!

It was so fun to see the kids and how excited they all were….and yet a touch sad as it was their last prom.

Next milestone?  The last softball game of Madi's career.  Should happen today, weather permitting.  This girl has played baseball/softball since she was 5, and this could be the very last game ever for her.  She has elected not to play this summer at all.  Carl and I won't know what to do with ourselves!

Thanks for letting me take a break from craftiness, to record some personal stuff, here on the old blog!

Happy Tuesday to you!

    My boys are only 2 and I already get sad at milestone’s goodness knows what I’ll be like when they are leaving school, even the thought of it makes me almost want to cry! I really am a hopeless case!

    What a beautiful daughter you have. Thanks for sharing the prom pictures with us. I always love to see kids dressed up like this. (First time I’ve seen short dresses for a prom, but my daughter will be 30 in July, so I’m out of the loop.)

    What a beautiful young lady! I am a few years behind you with my own daughter…she is going into Grade 10, but I am feeling that the years are flying by and where did my “little girl” go? This ’empty nesting’ stuff just kinds of creeps up on you, doesn’t it? Angie xo

    Madison is so pretty! She looks gorgeous in her hot pink prom dress. My daughter is graduating next Friday. I am having a nervous breakdown!
