& she went from this baby girlto this beautiful girl
in the blink of an eye.
I'm so proud of her.
Today she started 9th grade!!
Her first day at her huge high school....think there are 2600 kids..oh my!!
Honestly, I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for her this new chapter in her life. Friends have asked me if I am sad or scared about this new phase in her life....heck no!! I am thrilled to be where we are in her life. I am so excited & blessed to have a happy , healthy , self confident , grounded daughter. Yes I realize that life is fragile. (She lost her biological daddy to cancer) . & yes, I realize that they do grow up in a flash. But I am honored & proud to watch all my girls succeed in life & bloom where they are planted.
Yes I miss the days when she was that little girl, with all four front teeth out at the same time. But I wouldn't trade the "today" for anything.
She has been an easy child to parent. She makes all A's seemingly effortlessly. She has a great quick sense of humor & when she's not being too "14" she cracks me up. She is outgoing ~~too many friends to even count. She is your typical first born in that she is a high achiever, one with many leadership qualities. She loves Jesus. She is a loyal friend.
Don't get me wrong....I would be just as proud of her if she didn't have any of these qualities. I am proud of what she does but I am MUCH more proud of "who" she is.
Being able to watch her cheer this fall is going to be a blast. She has worked hard to get to this point- years of tumbling & gymnastics. It is such fun to watch her living her dreams.
I can say all this mush since she doesn't read my blog!!
Many blessings to you baby girl!
I am so proud to be Savannah's mom!
You may be one of millions
but you're one in a million to me!!
