Another Last Time

We just returned from Christian Fellowship Academy's Annual Grandparents' Day. Included every year is a talent show by students of CFA -- a homeschool support organization hosted by our church. Five of my children, all still homeschooled, were involved in the show. They played in bands, sang in choirs, joined in skits, the girls were mean pirates playing backup to Merrick's energetic Pirate King, and three of the girls donned WWII jackets, shirts, and hats and sang strong harmonies to "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" while pulling off some crazy dancing! Louissa was one of them -- a cute army nurse from the 40's.

This is her senior year. Believe it or not, Mom shed a tear or two as I realized this was her last Grandparents' Day Show. She was terrific, as always, and I am sad that another of my children is finishing this season of life. Louissa is number five, if you go by numbers. But she is much more than a number, as they all are. She has become a nurturing, caring, dependable young lady, full of talent, ready to serve, and ever a good example of Christian living. Will I miss working with her day in and day out? Your first guess is undoubtedly correct!

Glad I am to have had these years to invest in her and have her home with me. She is a precious jewel to be treasured always. And treasure her I do.

To all involved in the show - congratulations! It was a terrific display of creativity, hard work, and caring. Hats off!

Ah, your comments remind me that my years with my little ones are numbered. I'm sure that it will be all too soon that I watch Jocelyn preparing to graduate from Grandparents day!

There are so many moments lately in which I realize I am so not ready for Mitch to be a senior and then head off to college. I cry just reading about your last moments, I will be a certifiable basket case when I get to my own!
