Tonight We Celebrate My Daughter B As She Graduates 8th Grade
At the start of this week, I had to have a little pep talk with myself... "Don't cry, Kristi; it's not like she's moving out." " Don't cry, Kristi; it's not like she's getting married." "Don't cry, Kristi; she is still your 6lb 3oz baby; she's just a whole lot bigger now".
And, I gotta say I did so well not crying, until last night, THEN I LOST IT, and cried ALOT!
Tonight my little B graduates 8th grade, and I couldn't be prouder of her. She has more determination than most adults I know, she is loving, has the biggest heart ever, and is the first one to forgive, and she is certainly wise beyond her years.
Happy 8th Grade Graduation Day B; Mom, Dad, and Logan couldn't be prouder of the person you are or love you more than we do.
Don't forget when you go to bed tonight, you'll officially be a Freshman in High School, with a whole future just waiting for you to live it. And remember, no matter what this life and these next four years throw at you, show yourself the same grace you show others, make tons of new friends and join clubs that you never have before.
These next four years are all about growth, so do that, but also make sure you're unapologetically you!
WE LOVE YOU!
