clipping her wings!


My oldest Ashley is now 16 and a Junior ...She is attending her first college Open House this Friday...


She will be making the 4 hour drive to Ohio University with her Father...


Many thoughts go through my head as i type this...


~ Where did 16 years go?


~ When did i become so old? lol


~ Ashley was my most "SPIRITED,STUBBORN,INDEPENDENT" Child. Will she stay this way?


In less then 2 years she will be in College and I'm pretty sure i will be drinking more VINO!

1st Day of first Grade

No you won't!!! You'll be too broke to buy the stuff!
The flip side of stubborn, spirited, and independent teen is often a confident, achieving, leader! With her talent the sky's the limit and she'll make you prouder every day.

Wow - hang in there Mama, that would be hard!

Amanda said...

such a cute picture. was she going to a private school (uniform)? take a deep breath, you've got 1.5 more years with her before she heads off to school, and you can always go visit her. parents weekend, homecoming weekend, etc etc. are you really going to start Christmas decorating. I'm thinking of doing the same. or were you kidding.

Oh, how bittersweet this must be for you. And gee, you get to practice now for a few more times coming up.

Did I just send you to the vino early? Sorry!

Hugs,

With a 4 and 2 year old I can not imagine my babies looking at colleges let alone getting a drivers license. Hang in there!

What an adorable picture!!! Time really does fly.

What a cutie. I think (or at least pray) that a strong willed child turns into a strong adult. Please (PLEASE!) say that is true :)

It is so scary thinking of them on their own. I feel the same with my 17 yo.

In the blink of an eye, eh?

That's such a sweet picture of Ashley. :)

kids with that personality typically are not followers and make better decisions. and Suz is right you will be too broke to drink any extra wine.

Love the 1st grade picture!!! She will do great in college, but not sure about you??? Don't want to see those days coming!!

So, does this mean more or less vino? Less b/c of the freaking college costs (already started Logan and Ava's fund) or more b/c you'll be worrying so much. Maybe she'll pick one close to home and stay at home for those four-six years-LOL!
