It's Coming...

My girl

My "little" girl

My "little" blondie girl


Graduates in a matter of months.

Let the planning begin!

Because we are that weird homeschool family that you've heard about, Girl won't be graduating with a huge class. There is no class ring. There won't be a lock in grad party. She'll miss out on only having a few tickets and too many relatives who are dying to attend the ceremony.

Instead, she'll graduate with three others for a grand total of four graduates. (That's one more than graduated from our Boy's class).

She'll wear the robe

Walk the walk

Make a speech

Play the piano

And her mother with try not to cry.


But before all that happens we need to plan. When Boy graduated we hosted a father-son breakfast. It was the perfect way to celebrate graduation because Beloved and Boy had attended many men's breakfasts together. The food was AMAZING and I can only say that I love hiring a caterer. No muss, no fuss. It's the only way to fly.

Now it's Girl's turn and we've decided on an afternoon tea. Doesn't that sound fun?

We need to narrow down a date, choose the menu, decide on decorations and get invitations out.

In so many ways, it feels like it's years away, but it's not.

It's coming, whether I'm ready or not.

I just can't believe it.

My girl

My "little" girl

My "little" blondie girl

is graduating.

Somebody get me my smelling salts!

i love it. from one homeschooling momma to another, well done sister.

for boy's graduation, we rented out the entire building of a 9 pin bowling alley and all his friends, family and co-horts came. it was such a great day for everyone.

She's absolutely beautiful. Why do they have to grow up so fast? I know that whatever you plan she'll have a wonderful time.

Firstly, Congratulations! I will embark on this same venture next year only my son will participate in a school commencement and I just know I will cry; there is no denying it! It will of course, be tears of joy that we both survived...

Enjoy your planning!
