And all of a sudden she's graduated High School and will be turning 18. When they say the older they get, the faster time goes..they are right!
See the problem is, Alyssa is a very enjoyable child. She's not perfect, but she's close. She's always been very easy to raise and the teenage years weren't really so bad. So while I was able to sit and be very proud of her during her graduation, I was also sad because it means in a couple of months she will be going to college. It is surreal.
It also means I have to let go. I'll have to take pictures of her bathroom and room right now so it will make it easier...they are never clean. LOL. That's seriously the only thing I have to go on...
This is pretty much what she looked like throughout graduation:
After she accepted her diploma:
And at the wonderful party that her friend Bonnie's mom threw for both of them:
Here's to a successful and fun four years of college with lots of memories!
Congratulations girls! I am so proud of you! I can't wait to see what the future holds for you both!
Words of advice to anyone with children....save a TON of money, starting NOW. You have no idea how expensive these suckers are until they drain your bank account..and it's not until they are 18...it's really until they are 22... :)
