My baby is a senior....

Well last night after everyone was tucked into bed I snuck downstairs and had to get the decorations going. My oldest son Brandon is returning to high school today. It's just not ANY first day of school, it's his first day as a SENIOR in high school. I couldn't let the day begin without some festivities. I went into the storage room and got out the balloons and ribbons and decorated the kitchen in the school colors. I was hoping he wouldn't come down for a midnight snack and spoil the surprise. I waited patiently for the alarm to ring this morning.
After three attempts to wake him, he finally came down for breakfast. I'm not sure how he will be able to get himself up when he's off at college next year! As he bounded from the staircase into the kitchen his eyes twinkled with delight. He was surprised to see the festive greeting that reminded him that he was now "the top dog" at the school. I couldn't let the moment pass without a click of the camera to savor the moment. Another memory to tuck away and be reminded how qucikly time has passed by....
After he drove off to leave for what will be his last year at home, my husband and I held hands and prayed for him and all the plans God has in store for him. We have officially begun the school year routine! Summer is coming to a close and this saddens me, but there are so many wonderful times to look forward to throughout this school year.

“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he shall not depart from it.” Proverbs 31:28
