Luckily, Bobby's group was the second group to perform. The kids were not exactly model children tonight.... We took animal crackers to entertain but instead they created a loud, continuous argument over who was getting more. We had an open aisle in front of us, and Ella Kate insisted on prancing around everywhere throughout the show. Sheesh! After his songs, we gave up.
Bobby also received his high school ring this week. I admit I had tears in my eyes when my mom told me and then when I saw it. When did he get so big?? And I know this is exactly how I'll feel with Jake and Ella - they'll be this size before I know it!
I was 13 when Bobby was born and I have nothing but good memories of him. He was the best child! And he's such a good young man! He has the kindest demeanor - always cheerful and nice to everyone. I will be so sad when he goes off to college. But despite my sadness, I'm really trying to encourage him to go away to school. It's one of my regrets and it's something you can never do over!
