The big day today…DeeDee graduated from grade school! What a chaotic morning (as if there’s another kind), but well worth all the energy I spent getting to the ceremony - with even an ounce of sanity intact.
I woke up this morning to DeeDee in her bathroom, flat ironing hair that hadn’t seen shampoo all week…”uummm, no Baby Girl, you need to wash that hair.” So, already behind schedule, I dried and pressed her lovely mane.
Boo missed the bus cuz his (surgery) knee was aching and now with DeeDee in the same boat, well, Daddy had to drive the two to school. With 45 minutes left til graduation started, we busted a move…got showered and dressed, got the baby ready, settled the other baby down with breakfast and Caillou, and began a mad search for the four AA batteries I needed for my camera…
Found some batteries (whew!)
Devaney just missed her bus, gotta take her with us…packed up the baby, the cameras, and were on our way!
Got to the school, located my beautiful 5th (soon to be 6th) grader, whipped out the camera, focused (she’s posing)…aannnnndddd…NO MEMORY CARD! Oh Lord, I left it in the computer…dang it, dang it, DANG IT!!!
**Thank you Stacie for being in the right place, at the right time…WITH a working camera.**
So here she is, in all her glory, looking like the lovely Sparrow she is, at her 5th grade graduation. Tomorrow she will officially be a middle schooler (sigh), and I am so proud of her…
Mama loves you, Baby Girl!!
