What a wonderful week it has been. One of the things I truly enjoy about being a mom is making every event something special and making memories to last forever. So, I started the week with a count down... Brandon my oldest, who is graduating this Sunday came down for breakfast Tuesday morning and this is what he saw....
2 days left....
Oh my gosh...It's here. My young boy is graduating. His last day of school! I pulled out the photo of his first day of school and shared it with him. We both smiled and then off he went for the last time!
I made a quick stop at the dollar store yesterday and bought some special markers so he could decorate the car. Had to bring out the camera and capture the moment.My heart pounded with each put he made. I prayed the entire 18 holes and God was listening. Last night I actually got on my knees and thanked HIM for the wonderful day that I knew He blessed us with.
The school year couldn't have ended any better. Brandon has been a golfer on the varsity team since he was a freshman. Last week the team was in the District playoffs. They took FIRST place which qualified them for the Regional playoffs this week. Yesterday their team finished in FIRST place! What a day. They have now qualified for the State playoffs, which will be next week. This is the first time in 4 years that they will be going. We are so excited.
My hubby and I walked all 18 holes watching every stroke that Brandon hit. I was beaming, we were so proud of him. He golfed a 77. If you golf, you know that is a pretty good score. For the overall tournment, he took an individual metal for 3rd place.
It was a day to remember... My young boy...NOW a young man.
Photos and memories to treasure forever in my heart.
The week will be ending with the Graduation ceremony on Sunday and I am so excited for my son. A new chapter in his life, just waiting to begin. It has been a wonderful week of new memories and new beginnings.
I hope you are having a wonderful day. Take the time to enjoy all you have been blessed with.A Son can a outgrew your lap, but never my heart.
