thanksgiving hip hop

happy happy thanksgiving!!  i am feeling pretty thankful that we didn't have school yesterday so i was able to get some scrapbooking tine in.  my oldest is a senior this year and will be graduating so i need to get my scrap on in a MAJOR WAY.  this layout was fun to do and looking back, it is what really started the onslaught of her recruiting ride.  at present, megan is being actively recruited by over 30 schools.  how exciting and CRAZY is that?!  when i was recruited for soccer (like mother, like daughter), i took the first offer and was all like, "woo hoo, let's go!"  today it is a whole other process.  we go on college visits and meet with coaches and talk soccer shop and listen to all the things they can do for her. and did you know that colleges now ROCK?!  i went to a private school but it seems like the ghetto now.  i mean in one school, they had starbucks and papa john's pizza as part of their MEAL PLAN!! and free laundry!!!  do you remember how hard it was to scrounge around to find quarters?!  and the facilities are amazing.  it is really neat to see.  again, i am also thankful that megan's hard work and sacrifice are paying off (in 1st grade we call this "making a connection" to my opening blog post.. :)

Enjoyed your scrapbook page and post. I gave each of my two kids a scrapbook for their 18th birthday. They are 31 and 25 today and still keep them out to peak at from time to time. I enjoyed creating them too

What an awesome layout and HOLY COW your daughter is a soccer rock star! How exciting that she's going to be beginning an exciting journey in just a few months...after she makes that huge decision of deciding where to go...! Congratulations to both of you for working hard for your dreams and getting there. My little one is only 10 years old but hoping to play soccer in college one day - how fun to see dreams come to fruition! I will look forward to hearing how it all turns out!
