almost......all grown-up

So, my oldest daughter, Shelby flew to Texas to see her best friend and visit my sister and her family. This was her first trip by herself and I was very nervous, especially with her switching planes and staying in a hotel by herself, etc... She did great - I did too! Being the big worrier that I am. She had a wonderful time with Scottie - loved going to his graduation (he's in the airforce) and spending time with him. My sister and her family picked her up and she got to spend 2 days with them too. I think I never prayed so hard as I did for her while she was gone. Thank God she had a wonderful time.

I cannot believe how much she is growing up and the good choices she has been making. We had a nice family dinner last night and it is good to have her home.

Used lots of new goodies on my layout - many from my Secret Cupid - Karen sent me some very pretty stuff for the swap - Thanks again!! ;-)

Gorgeous layout Lisa... Letting your 'little' ones grow up is hard, but it sounds like your DD is going to be just fine! Doesn't stop you worrying though does it!
