I AM THE PROUD MOM OF AN ELEPHANT!
Sounds strange doesn't it? Well, it is true! My son is now officially an Elephant. Roll Tide Roll! I can not believe it.... a freshman in college at the University of Alabama. You know what that means..... Lots of FOOTBALL watching in this house.
I am not quite sure when he grew up. Like many of us I am thinking to myself.... how can you be going to college when I just graduated from there..... and then reality hits you in the face and you realize OMG I am old!
I could not be more proud. The move all comes with so many emotions. People kept asking me if I was sad. I was very sad, but at the same time, I was more excited than anything else. All I kept thinking was that we raised our son to follow his dreams and go after what he wants. How can you go wrong with that? The sad part was not letting him go, but realizing that when we embarked on our journey down to Alabama things at home would never be the same. When he comes back, he will be a true adult. I wish him all the success in the world. College is such an amazing time. The adventures and experiences that he is about to have will last him a lifetime. I can only hope and pray that he continues to be the most amazing son that any parent could ever hope for. So as his journey begins, I have gained a new aspect on how quickly life passes by and to enjoy every moment.
So that has been my summer.... preparing myself for my first born to leave the nest. As for my other little ones, well, they keep me busy and that is just fine with me.
Anthony finished up his freshman year of high school and is having a good time running Cross Country.
Ashley continues her journey with gymnastics. Ashley had such an amazing year winning some of the biggest competitions that she has competed in thus far including trips to Vegas, Boston, and California and then ending her year as Delaware State Champion and also as the Region 7 Regional National Champion.
I had to get one last picture of the three of them together before George went off to college.
I am sure my mind will be kept busy as I am looking forward to meeting my new little ones in about 2 weeks. I am so lucky to have the most amazing co-workers and school. So as for me, I am sure you will be hearing a lot more from me and I am glad to start blogging again! I have missed everyone so much.
