I sit here, still hacking and coughing from this nasty chest cold.
My body and mind are simply worn out.
I have had this chest cold for almost a week and let me tell you
It knocked me right off of my feet.
I might be wrong but I think that all of the emotions of these past few weeks
have weakened my body's defense mechanisms.
My mother in law would say that I am over-doing things..
and she's probably right.
There have been many milestones in our house this week
~ all good things..
but all a sign that life is moving by to quickly.
This past week we celebrated Paul's 50th birthday.
As he requested, It was a small celebration with all of his girls.
He received some awesome gifts, we went out to our favorite restaurant for a fantastic crab cake dinner, then came home and celebrated with a few friends.
Isn't this a great photo of Paul with his mom.
This week we say goodbye to school.
Back in 1996,
We never dreamed that while we were searching for Christian schools for Michelle
I found it by accident and after touring and meeting some of the faculty we loved it.
... and after 16 years straight .. lots of packed lunches, homework and tuition payments,
it is hard to say goodbye to such a staple of our lives.
Michelle started there in Kindergarten.
and graduated from 8th grade with honors.
