I have been wanting to post so much, but time just goes by and it doesn't get done! There has been many times where I would say to myself, I need to blog about this, and then that's as far as it goes LOL
So last weekend was filled with homecoming stuff. The football game was so cool (half-time show) and then the next night was the dance. Ashley looks absolutely gorgeous and Cliff look as handsome as ever. They went with three other couples and I did all the driving. I just can't explain how much my heart fills up when I witness these events with Ashley. She is growing up so fast, and I get to see and be a part of it all! Some people asked me why I have to do all the driving and I ask them, why wouldn't I? These parents don't realize what they are missing out on! I get to see and hear the excitement as they are going out to eat, then how fun it was in the restaurant and the latest gossip, and then we crank up the music to get them pumped more for the dance and I get to feel their excitement as we approach the school! When I pick them up, I am the one who hears all about the dance. I am so tuned-in to what these kids talk about, feel, think, etc. I get to see, hear, and communicate with each one of them and I wouldn't change it for the world!!! I only have two more years of this, and that will go by fast enough. So I ask all the parents out there, why would you NOT be as involved as can be? Forget about your "time" or taking this opportunity to get out yourself...there are plenty of time for all that, but THIS time will never happen again!!
