Oldest...Senior pictures

it's a bittersweet time

It's something we've been working toward for a little more than 18 years











From the first heartbeat,








it seems like a lifetime away
before you'll have to let them go


and then we blink our eyes and those toddler steps





lead to t-ball



 

growing pains




setting limits






there are times we just hold on,
praying through situations

celebrating the big and little moments and accomplishments





 We spend 18 years learning to be a parent (we have a long way yet to go)





and then we must to learn be a friend




and finally letting go...




so they can realize their dreams and continue to follow God's leading in their adult life

Momma, I love that picture as well. i believe that is the old mill over by Market Place and Aldis. Awesome place! Only told me about it.

We also went downtown FS to the old Plunket Piano store close to Wheeler. Couldn't get the boy to smile at all and he has the best dimples!

I got numerous great pictures, so I'm having a hard time narrowing it down.

I love the pictures. You did an amazing job. Totally needed a tissue to look through them.

Great pictures of a handsome young man! I know you will miss them. My two oldest boys are in college 14 hrs. away .... The oldest graduates next year (Lord willing!)....more tissues...but then we would be crying a different sort of tears if they hung out around home for too long! Life goes on and IS still good!
