What I have mixed feelings about:
•Kaitlyn has been going through lots of stuff in her room, keeping, tossing, and donating. I feel a pang or two of sadness, knowing that she will be moving out and marrying her love in just 5 weeks. Just 5 weeks, and she'll no longer be under our wing at all. Our bird insists on leaving the nest. Truly, we are happy for her and look forward to a glorious wedding day. At the same time, I don't like the thought of change.
I leaned against the doorway of her room yesterday and looked at the boxes. I told her that Mom has to work through some feelings. :) I'm still hoping I can fool myself into thinking she'll just be away at school in Missouri and not actually permanently living there. I'll let you know how that one works out for me.
•Bryan's last day of school is tomorrow. How wonderful that he's completed his junior year. The youngest of my big kids will be a senior.
What I'm looking forward to:
•Marching band season is in full swing. Bryan's parades start next week. Time for the fast pace of attending many parades. It's fun and we love to support our boy and his high school band. He has 9 parades in June alone. We'll go to as many as possible.
•A glorious wedding day in July
•rain - hoping it comes soon
