My preppy high schooler

Friday, June 1, 2012
Whew...it is all over.  And I am looking forward to a GREAT summer. Will graduated from 8th grade and is off to an all boys college preparatory high school.  And I think he was looking the part as he went off to the 8th grade dance the other night....

I think he looked so cute!!  I, on the other hand am looking very tired (it was a tough week) but I am glad to have a shot with him before his last middle school dance.  We were rushing off to Harry's elementary school graduation and did not get to see him leave with his friends but another Mom texted me them all together.

Just found this photo from his first middle school dance...

He has really grown up (I loathe that hair:)

Will starts driver's ed on Monday...say a prayer for me:)

  4. Oh my word! I can't get over how much your handsome Will has grown and changed! And I'm exhausted just reading about all that you've had going on lately. You hide "tired" really well in my opinion.

    1. Thank you Shari. It is SO HOT and HUMID here in Texa right now thatI wear it up almost everyday in a bun or pony. This day I twisted it up and had a clip in it. I really only wear it down for occasions (which tend to be when my photo is taken:)

    1. Thank you Beth. I am pretty hard on myself. I guess I expect a lot of myself (and probably my kids too). I work on it though. Thank you for your kindness. I am going to go easier on myself.

      Have a great weekend.
