Class of 2008

You may remember me mentioning Brooke on here before. She is the daughter of one of my best friends and my neighbor. When they moved here Brooke was only "7" and she just turned "14"!! GASP!! Lani and I went to her 8th grade graduation tonight and it took ALL I had to not bawl. Geesh, I can't even imagine how I will be when it's my own kiddos up there. It wasn't just the fact that she is going to be a freshman. A lot of the tears were because of how beautiful she has become. There is that underlying teen angst, but she is so kind, caring, loving, sweet, and lovely!! I know that she is going to make a difference in this world someday:)

I know I will be a mess when my kids graduate any grade! Good thing M didn't have a K graduation. She did have a preschool one and I cried=(

I bet it is great to have a babysitter the kids love so close=)
