Time to breath

Hard to believe graduation is over.  It seems the past month has been a whirlwind of planning, cooking, shopping, cleaning, meetings, phone calls…all for Josh’s grad party or his school’s Senior All Night Party.  We’ve made it through, I can breathe again.

Of course this also means the excuses I have been using all year are all out the window.  At least until August when we start packing Josh up to head up to college.  No mother-in-law living with us, no All Night Party meetings and errands, no graduation party prep.  All I have left is graduation parties for others to attend.  No work there, just a couple of hours every weekend for a while.

Three more days of school for Griffin and he will officially be in high school.  But nothing left for him either, his 8th Grade Party was this past Friday.  Although he’ll have swimming all summer, we won’t have him go every day and Josh will most likely be driving him there.  Again, once August rolls around he’ll have me on my toes again.  From what I hear, JROTC starts training around then.

But for now I can breath…let’s hope I can do something other than sit on my rear with that breath!

And now, because I’m going to miss this face more than words can ever express, one more picture of my adult baby before I start this new chapter of my life.  The life of a mom with one adult child and one teenager at home.

About Cheri

I'm the mom of two boys and wife to my high school sweetheart. Our oldest, Josh, is 24 and living at home while working. He just finished trade school for media arts and is looking for a job that will be a career so he can get out on his own. In the meantime he's got a steady job with benefits. Our youngest, Griffin, is 20 and in the Army. He just got married so I have also gained a daughter. Unfortunately, he is stationed in Washington so they're across the country from us. I was lucky enough to have the option of leaving the work force a few years ago, but recently went back part-time to learn a new trade working at a small family owned coffee shop.
