How can I do both?!

Tears rolled down my face as I watched him walk away. Back towards the dorm. 

And then just as he got a little closer to the dorm. 

He never looked back. 

But the walk turned into a skip. Almost a run. 

How can I be so sad. 
Like a punch in my stomach. 

And he's so excited?! 
So ready for this future. 

So excited and ready to dive head first into college. 

Sometimes it's so exciting to watch, but at the same time---this sux.

It takes a village...

This is what it looks like. 

The village. 

In our schools. 

As the end is here, I am truly thankful for the teachers that have loved my boys. 

And so today, we thanked them. For their role in Mason's academic adventures. 

And although its not much, we baked them with love. 

We packaged each one. Tied the ribbon and added the tags. With love and thankfulness. 

Yes, he helped. That big boy senior of mine. And he gets it. 

He delivered 199 of these little beauties today (only because I kept one for the photo!!)

Starting at the elementary school. Moved on to the intermediate school (although this school came after his time, many of these teachers were his teachers, principal, etc)

Then to middle school, junior high and finally the high school. 

This includes teachers, office staff, janitors, lunchroom ladies and more. 

Atleast 199. Because I'm sure someone was left out. And I'm sorry for that. 

We are thankful for the village. Because of it, he's one smart cookie!
