{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Senior Prom #ww

Our son attended his Senior Prom last Friday with his fiancee. Please, excuse me while I go curl up in the corner with a tub of cool whip. 

Ah! Seriously, I cannot believe he will be graduating in just a few weeks.

Today, he received his letter of acceptance to college. I cry.

He will still be living at home and commuting to college but I am a mom and allowed to be sentimental about my eldest journeying around this world as an adult!

I think it’s pretty great that using a black and white action can make a blurry photo look so much better! I managed to snap a few quick photos of Tom and Anna when we picked Anna up from her house. They were a lovely pair and ended up having a nice night out with friends.

    Your little boy looks very handsome for his prom. It’s good that he’s making strides towards adulthood. But also still within reach at home :)

    I love the black and white photos! They’re both really nice, and girl, just the thought of my son (almost 6) going to prom/college/moving out…makes me want to curl in a ball. I’d say you’re handling it as you should be :)

    It’s okay you can definitely cry! I’m having a melt down about Johnny getting in his high school schedule. I can’t imagine a college one!
