Today was the 'Goodbye' assembly for the seniors at Nicole's school. In this assembly all of the Student Body Officer's remove their jackets one by one. Each officer is wearing a t-shirt underneath their jackets that has the logo of the college or university where they will be moving on to.
I should have known that it was going to be a tear jerker- and I forgot to put Kleenex in my purse. It was bad!
I had no idea at the time that she would go on to do even more than cheer at Copper Hills High. Student Government became her passion. It has been so fun as a parent to watch her grow in her leadership abilities, to learn to speak out and stand up for things she feels strongly about. She has left quite a legacy and some big shoes to fill (even though she has the tiniest feet ever!)
After the assembly she was a mess. But so were her parents. I love this picture because it shows that even her daddy got a little teary-eyed.
We sure love this girl and are so proud of who she has become. We're so excited to see what her future holds as she heads off to Snow College and throws herself into being an Ambassador. I'm sure she'll be just as busy as she has been this year- if not more. But it's all good. And now it's time to look forward to what lies ahead!
