Every year I'd get out there and snap some photos on the driveway. The crape myrtles by the parking bay bloom in August and so there was usually a backdrop of watermelon colored blossoms that remained constant though the four boys grew and changed.
Backpacks in hand and often laden with bags of school supplies, they took a moment to pose before heading down the driveway to climb aboard the bus or getting behind the wheel of their car. Bless their hearts, they were pretty patient even when they were leaving for college or in the throes of those cranky teenaged years in high school!
With Clark's graduation from college last spring, our unbroken streak of educating the young has come to an end and so I almost didn't have a first day of school photo that I could share with you.
And since she's becoming part of the family.......
He lined her up on their front porch last week
and then got the requisite getting in the car shots as she headed off to her first day of classes.....
at Medical School!!!
What an adventure!
Med School is spoken of as a rigorous, demanding experience but there's not a doubt in my mind that she's just the one to take on the challenge and finish still smiling and at the top of her class.
Isn't the future Doctor/future Daughter-in-Law pretty darn sweet to let me brag about her on the blog?
Oh, I'm so excited for her!!!
(Good work, Clark! On both the photos and on finding such a lovely young lady!)
