Well, it finally happened. It's actually been happening all along, but I guess I just refused to admit it. My daughter is actually growing up. Right before my eyes. And let me tell you, I'm not exactly happy about it. Nope, not at all! LOL
I was thinking about it yesterday and it hit me that she'll no longer be in elementary school and that she's moving on up into middle school. I burst into tears. I'm a total mess. I figured if I was crying yesterday, how in the world was I going to make it through today. I did tear up once, but managed to keep it under control. It's a good thing my mom wasn't there or I really would have broken down.
I know I'm biased, but I have to say she looked absolutely beautiful and totally happy. She's so excited about going to middle school (and a little nervous too). In August she'll get a chance to check out her new locker, get her schedule of classes, and meet her new teachers. She wants to continue with chorus and join the theater group. All from a child who used to be afraid of getting up in front of anybody for anything. LOL
Here's a couple of pics from our day:
