One graduation down, one to go. Here are some pictures from Mary's 8th grade graduation (and a picture at home with Jack before we left for graduation.) Mary is so sad to be leaving her friends. Little does she know that 4 years from now, she'll be sad to leave her high school friends and another 4 years after that ... she'll think the saddest day of her life is having to leave her college friends. I can only hope and pray that graduation sadness is the worst sadness she'll ever have to experience in her life! I'm up and out the door early tomorrow morning to catch my flight to New Jersey for the next graduation.

Jack is much better and back to his baseline. Thank you Jack! It really makes me happy when Jack can get through an illness without having to involve medical professionals (it's that love/hate relationship with doctors that I have.)

Thanks for checking in and I'll see you all back here on Sunday.

Way to go Mary! We are very proud of you. High School will be great and college is SO MUCH better!
Way to go Jack! So happy you are feeling better so that mommy can come to Jersey without extra worry.

Can't wait to see you tomorrow my dear friend!
Lots of Love and Safe Trip

Wow Ann, its scary isn't it - Mary looks so grown up now. I find it hard to believe that I have one son at University, one due to start high school in September and one in preschool - maybe I'm just the mad lady, eh?
So very glad Jack is feeling better, it's dreadful when they get sick, I hate it.
Enjoy your trip
