My Blue-eyed girl




My Wish
Rascal Flatts

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
and each road leads you where you wanna go,
and if you're faced with a choice,
and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
if it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile.
But more than anything, more than anything...
My wish,
for you,
is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big,
your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you,
and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.
I hope you never look back,
but you never forget,
all the ones who love you,
in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive,
and you never regret,
and you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God's grace,
in every mistake,
and always give more than you take.
But More than anything,
yeah, more than anything...
My wish,
for you,
is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big,
your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you,
and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.




This month has been a wild one for my baby girl. She turned 5 on the 27th, dance recital practice and the big kicker...I registered her for Kindergarten yesterday. She was a little nervous, but I know, when the time comes that she will do awesome. She is so smart (well of course, I'd think that!!) and soaks things in like a sponge. I know she will be reading in no time.

M. is my out-going child. She never meets a stranger. She is kind and tenderhearted on one hand and can be sassy and crazy on the other. She is a true mixture of her mommy and daddy. Me the crazy one and Troy the mild/meek one. (HA)

Five years has flown by and I can't believe she will be leaving me for school. It has been a long time that I haven't had a baby at home with me. What will I do next year? Oh, I guess eat bon-bons like every other stay-at-home mom.....NOT!! I know that first day I will be crying like a baby. I bet my car automatically pulls into a Starbucks for a comforting cup of White Chocolate Mocha. I am gonna miss her during the day. I will miss hearing Dora the Explorer in the background, her getting in my bed snuggling with me after Reid leaves, us painting our nails whenever we feel like it, our morning walks and play dates. It makes me tear up just thinking about it. I remember crying and missing R., as well. It seems like just yesterday.

M. is my princess and makes me and her daddy very proud. God knew exactly what we wanted in a daughter when He gave us sweet M. Happy Birthday, sweet Lulu. Your mommy loves you to the moon and back a million times and is so proud of you. You will do well in school and will be the coolest 5 year old there! :)

Well of course she is the smartest! God broke the mold when he made her! She is so priceless. I know that Kdgn. will be the first of success steps for her. I LOVE HER SO! Of course, the lonliness thing could be easily cured with another set of little feet in the house??????HINT...HINT.........Love you all.

Ashley says she takes after her aunt, but we all know she takes after her Nana. She is so special to all of us. Like you say they threw the mold away after God made her. I'm glad she has a big brother who will be her protector as she grows up. Love you all!!

What a beauty! I can't believe our baby Macy could even be thinking about going to big school! Time does fly by, & I know she will do great. I remember having all of those feelings when Whitney started school. Trust me, you'll still have a full day! I do think your Mom has a great idea though. You know we got some great news when Kyle was in kindergarten...Love you! Kathy
