Wordless Wednesday


LisaWA said...

Ok... since I am typing in the comment section... this is still a wordless picture *Ü* right?

We have been trying to get Sr. Pictures taken this last week. This was one I liked, but I still need to work on positioning and lighting....ugh… he’s almost done!

I cried last night because it was 9:00 and he wasn’t home and hadn’t called yet.... I realized that a time will come and he won’t come home at all. I can’t tell you how sad that makes me.... It’s very hard to let go.... Its killing me folks....

I missed all my Wordless Wednesday peeps today! I’m off to make dinner and then I will come play!

Love to you all!

Oh my dear friend... I can't believe he is almost done with school too. Where has the time gone?

What a wonderful young man you have there.

Praying for you all!

This is a nice, natural portrait, Lisa. Practicing with that new camera?!? I can't even fathom my sons as seniors, and yet, I know they will be ... in what seems like just a blink of the eye.
Happy late WW to you.... :-)

Mama Peep said...

WOW! I can not even imagine having to let go. It is a very nice picture. Just remember....You will always be his mama!

I missed you today. I am glad you came to play.

Sci Center and Imax sounds great!

Michele said...

I am sorry you are upset...I cannot imagine....not yet anyway! That is a great picture. He looks like a nice boy who has a great momma!

He's very handsome. I don't know that feeling yet, but I know it's only a few years away. Not one of the easier parts of being a parent is it.

Lisa, this is the first time that I have seen your son! Isn't he handsome! I know you are proud. I know how you feel about letting go. My oldest will be graduating in a year and I know I will be a crying mess, girl!

Karen said...

Handsome young man. It is hard to watch them make that transition.

Senior pictures - oops - I was supposed to do senior pictures?!

Brittney said...

Wow...he is one handsome guy! I like the picture.

I am sorry to hear of your struggles/heartache with letting him grow up. I can't even imagine what that must be like. I am sending you a great big hug from TN!

LisaWA said...

Susan... yup... loving my new camera! Frustrated with my new camera! *Ü* I want to be good at it now please! Thank you very much... heheh

I started tearing up when h hit 8th grade! I’ve been a little emotional ever since! lol I’m a mom what can I do?

Patricia... did I tell you I got "the" camera?? *Ü* I got the bundle from Costco ( for my B-day last month), but bought it at best buy... they honored the bundle price at Costco and gave me a 10% discount on top of that. woohoo!!

Michelle... thanks... I’m not upset... but a tad emotional at times. It so hard to let them really grow up... even though this has always been the goal! lol I’m just scared how I'll act when my girls go through this! lol

Jenny~ You are so right... this hasn’t been the easiest thing for me as a parent, but something I have to force myself to do it. I’m proud of him... he has a lot of growing up to do... He is a boy *Ü* and yet, so proud of the young man he is and who he wants to be.

Hi Kysha! Ya know... I wonder if I feel this way because he is the first one? I hope it gets easier... like with anything we go through... but then again.. I doubt it! lol They are my people... and they are all growing up! 18 years is such a small amount of time to raise a child... in comparison to their lifetime...

Karen! Hello... I cracked up when I read you post because my son said the same thing! Sr. Pictures... what for? They are for me ya know! *Ü* Cause its all about me right now… lol

My biggest disappointment came a few weeks ago, he doesn’t want to take his graduating walk with cap and gown through a State Home school organization... he wants to keep it all on the down low... I told him his graduating wasn’t about him! Its all about me! lol He didn’t buy into it. *Ü*

Brittney! Thanks for the hug! I hope to get a real one! We are driving down to California this Christmas for a week or 2!

Hope you all are having a great weekend! big blog hugs to yas... enjoy your Sunday!!
