Welcome to 7th Grade.

Today Punk #1 brought home a letter that asks the parents to write a note to the teacher.  The teacher wants to get to know our child better and would like to know them from our perspective.  What a great idea.  So here it goes:

Ms. C,

I am the proud parent of Punk #1.  She is my pride and joy.  As she gets older it is amazing to see her and remember her as the precious baby that she used to be.  Today she is a beautiful young lady that shares her emotions and feelings proudly.  She tends to be on the loud side and is passionate about her views.  She loves to read and analyze the story behind the book and relate it to her own life. As her parent it is difficult to keep up with her as she is so advanced that it seems that I am talking to a short adult, she is wise beyond her years.  She does have a lot going on in her mind and heart that weighs heavily on her so please be patient as we try to work these things through.  I know that you will enjoy having her and please pick her brain and keep her active, or just a warning you will have a "Chatty Cathy" on your hands.  Good luck this year.

This tear I shed for you...

Punk #1 Summer 2010
Next week my oldest punk goes into the seventh grade.  I sit here in complete awe of where the time has gone.  She has grown into such a beautiful young lady;  I am so proud to be her mother.  I am at a loss of words to describe the emotion that is going through my heart every time that I see her,  this summer I watched as my baby grew into this beautiful Christian woman right in front of me.  Her maturity and intellect surprises me whenever we sit to have a conversation.  The fact that I can be silly and ride the cart in Wal-Mart or sing at the top of my lungs and she only laughs is awesome.  I love that I do not embarrass my daughter.  I want her to be fun and silly as well as, a well mannered lady.  So next week I will probably shed that tear for my girl, this is harder than her going into kindergarten.  Who would have thought?
