Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Last night was Spencer's grade 8 graduation. Can you believe it? I can't. My cute little boy with the white hair (he's the one on the left) has graduated from elementary school! Where does the time go? I know every parent wonders the same thing, but really! Where does it go?

He looked so grown up last night in his suit and tie. It was one of those wow moments for me ... you know the ones ... when you see your kids in a whole new light. The grad went well. Spencer won a music award for musical excellence fromt the Halton Junior Jazz band. His music teacher had some wonderful words to say about his musical ability. Spencer thought it was cool that the teacher said that he was jealous of Spencer's musical ability.

After the grad, they had a dance for the kids. All the girls were dressed in their gowns and most of the boys in suits. They all looked so grown up and eager to move on to the next phase of their lives.

Auntie Cathy and Uncle Don came to the graduation.


  1. I can't believe the difference a few months makes. Spencer looks so grown up!

    Congratulations Spencer on all accomplishments!

  2. Wow! I'm trying to answer the same question about time. I never feel it going, but the next thing I know, it's gone!

    Congratulation, Spencer, on your graduation and your award.

  3. I so enjoyed being a small part of Spencer's graduation. Thanks, Barbara, for including Don and I. We love watching those special moments whenever we can. Spencer looked so grown up. After seeing a couple of his friends I can see where the crazy hair comes from!

    Congratulations, Spencer! You're on to bigger, brighter things...

  4. Excellent. Kudos to you Spencer.

    Congrats to your ds! :D He looked very handsome.

    It's not a cliché it's such a reality... time sure flies!!! I had to do a reality check a few days ago when I realized that my oldest dd's first year of school was already finished and that my baby will be going next year. I'm sure that before long I'll be in your shoes at my dds graduation from elementary school... *sigh*
