Whew, Can this really be?

Whew, what a week! Can this really be? Me, old enough to have a high school graduate? Oh, the emotions! What an exciting time, but at the same time, it's very sad! In just a short couple of months, we will be heading down the interstate, dropping Tessa off for college. That makes me very sad, but I have to admit that it will be very exciting to see what God's plans are for her. Congrats, Princess! We are so proud of all your accomplishments and especially for the special young lady you have become! God bless you! Thank you for being the person you are, for the choices you have made, and for bringing us so much joy.

Congratulations, Tessa Jordan Kendrick!

The proud family!

I know two guys who are really going to miss someone when she goes off to college!

Not only siblings, best friends! (MOST of the time!)

"I'm done, oh yeah!!!"

All of our 2009 graduates at church.

All of the 2009 Forsan graduates at church.

One of the neat traditions that our church does is each mother decorates a table in honor of their child displaying pictures and memobilia(sp) from their accomplishments and activities. For years, I have enjoyed viewing everyone else's, but decorating my own child's was much more fun! It made me realize how truly busy Tessa has kept us for the past four years. The kid was involved in everything! I'm going to miss all of these activities.

At our senior service at church last night, Tessa sang a song called "Follow Love" by FFH. She did a beautiful job and when I figure out how to make it into a YouTube video, I might put it on here for you to enjoy. For the meantime, I added it by FFH on my playlist, so that is what you are hearing. It's a tear jerker, so be prepared!

Aaawwww....I know your heart is heavy and full of so many emotions! I promise it will all settle out and be amazing! And yes you will actually have more time on your hands.

I love the "done" picture and her table turned out gorgeous!

May God bless the nest stage of your lives! Love Ya Girl!!!
