May 1st has long been on our calendar this year~
the day our first would graduate college.
It has come and gone just like the past four years.
Scott and I both agreed we can NOT believe 4 years have flown by SO quickly~
seems like yesterday that we moved to Hartwell
and then dropped Savannah in Dahlonega.
Today was a mixture of emotions.
I really think I would have had a harder time with graduation
had Savannah not been getting married in 6 days.
It was great to have my mom and dad, Josh,
and all the girls there for the celebration!!!
This photo is blurry but her smile was shining through
as she walked in the beginning processional
and I had to use it~
We were ALL so proud and thankful
to see her walk across the stage and receive her diploma~
Right after all was said and done,
Savannah came out to hug her fiancée first thing~
And receive a kiss from her biggest fan~
It all started with two~
and went to three~
then on to four, five,six, seven...
(can't wait for baby eight!!!)
and our prayer for Savannah as well as all the girls
is to work hard for their education
and you will be able to do whatever you want to do!!!
Only thing missing was one precious little brother in China~
Our college graduate and high school graduate~
Precious girls both waiting for their wedding day
with one big accomplishment done~
The littles were amazing for sure~
EK still a little under the weather
and SJ just enjoying every moment~
We were all ready for a yummy meal
and enjoyed just that @...
And off to get a few last things for the wedding...
aren't they just the cutest couple???
Dad and I couldn't be more proud of you for SO many reasons!!!
You have always been a beautiful daughter inside and out,
setting an awesome example in front of your sisters.
Thank you for choosing college and persevering with grace.
We don't look at this experience as an end
but as the beginning of what God has chosen for your life.
This was merely a stepping stone to His Will for you.
I pray you will seek Him in everything
and allow Him to lead your way!!!
We are SO excited about this coming week~
the week before your wedding.
We know you are so excited about starting your life with your soul mate!
I can say from experience,
it is one of the most amazing blessings in my life
and am sure it will be in your's as well.
Dad and I love you with all our hearts
and know what a treasure Josh is receiving in you.
We are not losing you but gaining a son!!!
