~Legally, we are 'EMPTY NESTERS'!


I don't know how I managed to get my only two childrens birthday's so close together, but nonetheless, today, 18 years ago, we welcomed Sarah, our daughter into our hearts and our home. She has one more year of school left, but legally we can say with heavy hearts that we are empty nesters. How sad. This day came so fast!!!!! Sarah is our outdoor child who loves to ride motorcycles:

Absolutely ADORES glitter, as evidenced by this banner she made for her marching band:

Enjoys working on cars with her dad, especially when it is her own ride:

And she loves to smile:

She has grown into quite the young woman. We love you Sarah, and please don't move out TOO soon!

With our 'baby' on a mission, we truly ARE empty nesters, and it's been quite an adjustment. Your daughter looks like a lovely young woman - my son would LOVE that she has her own truck and motorcycle! LOL

You are right, Shanda, they truly do grow fast. I never understood that until we actually had children. What a beautiful young woman! I can't believe Sarah is 18 already. I will probably always see her as that cute little 2 1/2 year old in a fluffy blue dress and a ponytail full of ringlets at our wedding.
