Blake graduates

May 23, 2024

I knew I was going to be tearful today. Blake graduated from 6th grade this morning. We didn’t even have a 6th grade graduation growing up. But walking into the gym, seeing the giant graduation banners, and then hearing Pomp and Circumstance as all the 6th graders walked in just got me.

This is an end of an era. Not just for Blake. But for me as a mom. And it tears at my heart. Blake just barely started Kindergarten. And now he’s done. It’s true. Time flies.

Sometimes I get so caught up in life that I forget what an honor and blessing it is to have these children in our home. And how quickly they are growing up to become their own life designers.

I was that mom who filmed the boys walking into school today…knowing it would be their last. There are probably some big exciting changes coming that really does make today an end of an era.

But wow. The feeling I got as I watched him get his certificate was hold on tight…because the next 6 years are going to fly by. I am rededicated to being more patient, more understanding, and try to savor all that motherhood brings.
