Well, only two words work for me right now. Oh, Goodness! How can it be time to say goodbye to this amazing group of seniors that I had the pleasure of working with this year?
Everywhere I go lately, I’m running into them having dinner with their family, shopping for last minute supplies or being recognized before they head out the door. Admittedly, I am a sap and it grips my heart a bit. Maybe it’s because I know as a mom, just how hard it is to say goodbye to your senior/rising freshman. It’s also because I have come to know all of these wonderful kids and their parents this year. I know just how much they will be missed. But on the flip side of that, I know just how much they have to contribute to the colleges they will be attending. Each has a bright future ahead of them and will leave a mark as they learn and grow.
So hats off to the Class of 2016! Thank you for asking me to create portraits of you at this important time in your life. My best wishes travel with you and I anxiously await to hear how you’re settling in and loving the universities you have chosen! Here’s a look at them (in no particular order!)
Savanna…The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Anne Hayden…Furman University
Emma…The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
McLean…The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Nathan…North Carolina State University
That’s a pretty impressive list of schools there! I’m so proud of all of them and what the’ve accomplished…they are outstanding students and great kids. Blessed to have been part of their lives!
