Friday, the Kidling "graduates" from 8th grade, and will be off to high school in the fall. Last Friday was their class dance.

Beautiful! How do they manage to grow up when it feels like they can't be nearly "that" old? I hope she enjoys high school!

Wow, I still see that littel girl on mama's lap, hiding behind the book She's has grown into a beautiful, young woman, ready for the High School world!

Congrats on the graduation!

Mine is also growing up. 25 years old now and moving out of the house coming september to go live in their newly bought new home in the place where she already lives. He's already got a new job in that area (for 3 days a week) and in addition to that will be working for his own company, Agrifoto, and as representative of Claydon Agricultural Drills in The Netherlands.

It will be strange to be with the two of us again for real and every day after a quarter of a century of having a son about the house

Love it! Six Flags is just about an hour and a half from us. The kids used to go fairly often, even had season passes a couple years. That first photo definitely says "stay away from my daughter", while she is playing coy from behind the fan.

YOu should have seen the other pose, Cilla... the gun was pointed at her, and she had that classic silent film "Oh My!" expression.

Ha, good one! My dad used to talk about the old silent films he would go to as a kid - The Perils of Pauline. They didn't have color/sound/CGI/3D but I'll bet they had just as much fun, maybe more than today!
