It's official.

We have a first grader. I made it through the whole thing without crying, sent everyone on their way to go enjoy the day (I have to be back at work at noon), sat down at the table to upload pics and videos and then the tears came. For so long I honestly wondered if we ever ever even get to experience being parents and I'm so very grateful that we are getting to live this journey. I don't know why I'm this blessed, but I'll take it.

I never truly understood the saying, "time flies" until I had my children and now I just wish I could slow it down. Congratulations Chase, you have turned from my adorable baby to my handsome boy. I love you and am so, so proud of you!

****I am grateful for
1) caps and gowns and all things graduation
2) surviving kindergarten
3) that proud smile
4) the opportunity to not only parent, but to do it with Jeff
5) another day to share with my family
