The Tears They are a Flowin'

It all started just a few short years ago, or so it seems. Although perhaps their 4th year of life seemed like an eternity. But alas what started in 1995 when they were three years old in Spain....their First First Day of School.....has now progressed.

Those wild twins (ok one was wild and the other just had wild hair) have turned into THESE - and here is their Last "Last Day of School" photo. I cried that morning. I cried when I took the photos. I cried when they left. I cried when I uploaded them. And now. yep. sobbing like a baby.

I had better bring a truckload of tissues to graduation.
Yes, I'm proud of them and happy they are going on to do great things. But Damned I'm going to miss them.

Oh, I can't think about graduation. It's a year away for us, and I am avoiding the issue completely. I can't handle the graduation!

You should be very proud, as I know you are.

What gorgeous kids you have there!! I can imagine what you are going through because, even though my kids are much younger, there are still those "moments" that will just kill me...seriously...I'm just a big ole' wet tissue by the end of the day.
so...yeah...good luck with that...I'll send you some 'dry thoughts'!!
(Just look around at graduation...there will always be someone crying/sobbing more than you!! ;-))

*the word verification was "begin"...i like that...

It flies by--the only way I can get through it all is think about grandkids someday!

They look ready to conquer the world.

Lovely post, lovely pictures. The teen behind me NEEDS to know where your daughter got her dress.

Aw, girlfriend, I feel ya! I'm STILL crying about 8th grade graduation, and my baby is now officially a junior!!! Congratulations on raising two beautiful, smart, successful children (and not eating them when they were young like some OTHER animals do! ;-) )

It goes soooooo fast!

When I dropped off my oldest at college, all the kids in her dorms were crying with mothers comforting them. Me? I was crying and Kristen was hugging and patting me saying, "I'm going to be fine, Mom."
