Last weekend was homecoming for the majority of the girls I mentor (most of them attend the same school). I went to their homecoming activities on Friday afternoon & evening and I nearly lost it when all my girls came running into together holding hands. Like, seriously, I was all teary-eyed. And okay… a couple of tears slipped out. It’s just that my little babies are growing up! Aaanyway, moving on…
Two of the three seniors picked for homecoming court were my girls! Kelsi and Sara were both nominated and I can’t even tell you how much my heart filled with pride watching them walk across that football field in those long beautiful dresses. Sara was crowned homecoming queen, but both she and Kelsi were winners in my heart. 🙂
You guys, I have watched these girls grow up since they were in 7th grade. I have been there for the major milestones and heartbreaks and college acceptance letters. It is so real to me that after this year, I will go from seeing these girls 2-3 times a week to maybe that many times a year. If I get this emotional about my teen girls growing up, I don’t even want to think about what I’m going to be like when it’s my own kids, ha! But seriously, I am so proud of Kelsi and Sara and all the others! I love my girls! 🙂
– Did your school go all out for Homecoming or was it pretty tame?
– Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets emotional about kids growing up who aren’t even mine. 😉
– Any Homecoming royalty out there?
