Time marches on…

And just like that…my baby is graduating from high school.  From Patrick’s First day of senior year…to Patrick’s Last day of senior year. Where did this year go?

Time marches on whether or not you are ready to join the band.  A brief glimpse at these past 18 years…Trust me, I have edited the number of pictures here in the interest of time. Both yours and mine. 🙂  Reminds me of a friend who would say (knowing I could be wordy)…”Be brief.  Please be brief”.   Yeah, not so much.  😉

Song of the Day:  Times of your Life, by Paul Anka – I seriously cannot listen to this song, without crying my eyes out.  What a way to start my Friday.  😉

Here comes the saddest part
The seasons are passing one by one
So gather moments while you may
Collect the dreams you dream today
Remember, will you remember
The times of your life?

One week left till the actual high school graduation.  Where has time gone?  Less than three months till move-in day at Miami.  As I’ve mentioned before in regards to Meredith leaving for college, watching your child fly away from the nest is one of the hardest things a parent has to endure.  That being said, I could not be happier with the fine young man who Patrick has become.  I could go on and on, but I have three months in which to do so, before the “What does a boy pack for college”, will become the centralized topic of this blog.  Or better yet, “What does a Mom pack when she goes away to college with her son”. 😉

    Oh my, you did it, raised a fine young man…then…oh crap, you did it, and now he’s about to fly!? Loved the pictures and not too many at all. Lots of joy in this life of yours. And you completely nailed that song. What a classic. I just watched an 8 min youtube with Paul Anka where he shows slide show of his family…reminds me there is so much joy yet to be had with these kids!!!

    Seriously, an outstanding tribute to an exceptional young man! It has been fun watching Patrick grow into the outgoing, smart, compassionate, loving young man that he is today! And always so polite!! I wish him well at Miami! And looking forward to dinner at VTG this summer before he embarks on his college adventure!
