And were off…
I have always known this day would come, and knew I would never be ready for Anna’s graduation. Our lives have been so crazy! We have been on the go for I know two weeks and it doesn’t look to be slowing down anytime soon. I know every parent says ” I don’t know where the time has gone” and my goodness it is so true! It seems like yesterday that Anna was running around with pig-tails, and dragging her doll “pink baby” everywhere we went. I have to say I am really excited that Anna is starting a new chapter in her life. I’m not one of those mothers who mourn when their children start to grow up. Now I’m not saying there will not be a tear or two, ok I will admit there will be many tears. It’s not going to be easy watching her walk across that stage and receive her diploma, but God has a plan for her life and I get really excited to watch Anna start this next chapter.
The week began with our church honoring the graduates at all three service on Sunday with a luncheon with their family. Then all the grandparents and my sister and her husband came over to our house to celebrate Chloe’s birthday. After the birthday celebration we went to a presentation at church called “Point of Impact” . Point of Impact was led by our church staff to share information and cast a vision. So as you see our Sunday was quite busy but oh, we are not through yet. Chloe got a new set of golf clubs and was itching to go to the driving range, which turned into 4 buckets of balls and playing 5 holes. I will share more about the golf course and Jason beginning to have lower abdominal pains in a minute.
My little adddict…
Chloe has found her thing in school and hobby ,she loves golf and wants to go everyday that Jason can take her. We just celebrated her fourteenth birthday. Our family decided to give her a new set of clubs, and oh my…..they are expensive! Chloe was so excited ! Her birthday was yesterday the 22nd and we decided to celebrate early on Sunday due to the fact that graduation is the same week. As I mentioned earlier our plan was to go to the range so she could hit a bucket or two of balls. Well, I should have know that would not have been sufficient enough, we ended up putting in the dark on our last hole. I will have to say she was smacking that ball pretty well! I can’t wait to see how much she will improve over the summer.
For the first time in 20 years Jason and I have swapped places. If you remember I mentioned earlier that Sunday evening when we went to the golf course Jason was having lower abdominal pains. Well it turned out that he had appendicitis. I tried to get him to go to the ER on Sunday night but he did not want to inconvenience anyone to stay with the girls, so he promised he would go to get checked out on Monday if he was not any better. Jason called me about 12:00 and said he was on his way to the ER, and that’s when the craziness began of me trying to reschedule appointment. Then Jason called back and said they were going to do surgery in about two hours and I would have plenty of time to get down to the hospital. Then Jason called back a third time, this time he was borrowing the nurses phone because his phone had died, he said they are taking me back to surgery NOW!!. Oh my, it had only been 15 min since he said it was going to be two hours…..uhhhhh! I finished up at work and drove the speed limit all the way to RMC ( of course I did not speed. ha! ha!) It was really weird to see him laying in a hospital bed and those reclining chairs in the room are not very comfortable at all to sleep in!
Up at 4:
You know there would be more to this week, right? I also had a clinic appointment at UAB on Tuesday morning. I had to get up and leave the hospital at 4:30 to go home to get ready for my trip to UAB. My sister was sweet enough to go with me since Jason was still in the hospital. Jeff my brother-in-law had a doctor’s appointment and was already off work so he went to stay with Jason and bring him home. Jason is doing really good, he just has some trapped air in his shoulders from surgery. The day finished with Anna’s baccalaureate service and more tears….LOL!
The weekend in packed too
This weekend after graduation one of my best friend daughter is getting married, and we are so excited about it. Both Anna and Chloe are in the wedding, and it is going to be so much fun. I will be doing the brides hair, which is always so much fun to see the end result, and get to pamper her.
