Where Does the Time Go?
How did that happen?
But that's not the half of it.
You see, with an impending move hanging over our heads we have been very concerned about what this means to her. And getting settle in time for her to start a new school.
Her senior year. A new school.
Both Hubs and I did that when we were her age....and neither of us has anything good to say about it.
But this child? She has been taking advanced classes all her high school years.
Which means she already has enough credits to graduate as a Junior.
So, after discussing options with her and a quick meeting with the counselor....we now have a graduating Senior on our hands instead of a Junior.
She has chosen not to walk the isle. There will be no invitations. No ceremony.
But at this end of this month, just shy of her 17th birthday, she will be graduated from High School.
This coming year her plan is to get her drivers license, a job and take a couple of college classes at a local Jr./Community college (depending on what's available where ever we end up). A low key year where she can get her feet wet in the college scene and yet still live at home and be a kid for another year.
And that sounds pretty smart to me.
But I really am not sure how I feel about my baby girl being done with High School.
Time really does fly when you are having fun.
