Well… it happened.

She freakin’ went and grew up on me.  Without my consent, mind you.  Just freakin’ did it.  I know EVERYONE says this, but I honestly do not know where the time went!  It seems like just yesterday she was 3 years old dressed up in the thousandth princess costume of the day asking me for more teddy grahams.

NOW…. she is a confident, strong, sassy, sweet, intelligent, young woman who not only knows what she wants– when she wants it– but also strong enough to know and admit when she DOESN’T know what she wants!  I am super proud of her and excited to see where this next journey takes her.  Today, her major is Health Sciences, which is USM’s version of Pre-Med.  I don’t know if she will really ride this “I wanna be a doctor” train all the way to the station, but it will sure be a fun ride 😉

It’s going to be soooooo weird when she leaves.  Sean said at dinner to Lonnie and I the other night, “It’s going to be weird soon when I become an only child.”  After clarifying that Jessi going to college did NOT equal him becoming an only child, we talked about it a little… just enough to know that it’s on his mind, but NOT enough to make him actually show us that he was a little upset about it.  He is FAR too cool for THAT business! 😉

Graduation Day was busy and a bit stressful, but totally wonderful.  Everyone got together at my ex-in-law’s house and played together nicely. Sure it was a little weird… but we like weird.  And I am super happy that Jessi only had to have one party and not have to split what little time she had on this busy weekend between her two parent’s parties.
