Chapter Complete

I started these picture frames in 1995.  Today they are complete.  Seventeen years of public school.

"Our" schooling actually began before that when Logan and Rachel both attended the JFK Medical Center Preschool.  I served as President of the Parent Advisory Committee for several years, always busy planning fun events for the children.  We envisioned a charter school way back then when my kids were little, a place where we could keep our kids sheltered and safe.  The JFK Medical Center Charter School just celebrated its 10 year anniversary.  I was a founding member of the Board of Directors and still serve on the Board.  I always wanted to be very involved in all my children did as they were growing up and I have no regrets.  It's been a fun ride with a kazillion memories that I pull out from time to time. 

Today I put the last picture in Rachel's frame.  My babies.  They are not babies anymore.  I hope they remember the things I tried to teach them along the way.  It's kind of liberating to watch them spread their wings to fly.  I remember that feeling.  It was beautiful then and it is beautiful now.  Reach for the sky, my little chickadees.

Happy Mother's Day

Word of advice - don't take three months off from blogging because Blogger will change it up! 

I have been missing blogland and am anxious to catch up on what my fave's have been doing.  I've been a busy bee and I hope I can make up for lost time by posting some of what I've been up to so I can keep up with this journal of my life.   

Right now, though,  I'd like to say, Happy Mother's Day to all.  A recent visit with my dear mother gave me the opportunity to enjoy the woman I love so much, the woman who makes me the way she sees me, the woman who is my greatest inspiration, the woman who is so very special to me.  I snapped this photo of us before leaving for the airport.  I can still feel her presence beside me, though many miles away.  I love her so!!

Happy Mother's Day!
