SENIOR SESSION: Logan

Spring break is on it's way...at least for our school district...

after Spring break it is a straight shot to the end of the school year...

I think I just realized that the other day...

and having had another senior session last week, I was imagining myself in the shoes of those parents with SENIORS...

Just a few short weeks to graduation...
Most decisions have been made for what will happen next fall...
Summer is going to fly by and then these young adults take off...

It's what we, as parents, have all worked for since their birth...the slowly letting go...
but, I can't imagine that it's all unicorns and rainbows...

How does a mom watch her baby boy turn into a man and not have just a bit of a clenching in her heart? 

Absolutely there is excitement and pride for the adventure that awaits him, but at the same time, if I were to attempt to put myself in her shoes...wouldn't there be a level of "oh my goodness, this is the end of a season?" 

I've been told that boys eat their parents out of house and home...
I've witnessed first hand the "sound level" of handful of boys wrestling or just hanging out in the basement...
and then there's just the familiar opening and closing of a bedroom door, or garage door closing as he heads off to school each morning...

It was evident that Logan brings pride and joy to his parents.  
If I didn't happen to recognize it at his senior session last year (but I did), it was definitely present when I ran into their family at the outlet malls later that month...the way they interact with him, talk with and about him...they are proud of their son!

I think what struck me most about Logan and his family was their absolute desire to support Logan in any and everything that he put his mind to...they saw a talent in him, a passion...and they put all they had into helping him achieve his goals and aspirations...

I think there are some that, for whatever reason, sometimes choose to live vicariously through their children...they sort of direct them in ways that resemble themselves...perhaps it's because they feel as though they can relate better or perhaps they just like the thrill and want their children to experience the same...

What impressed me with Logan's family, was that, that was not the case with them...
Logan has a passion in music and though it may differ from the passions of other family members, it didn't stop him or them from pursuing it wholeheartedly...

and the thing is, it was with pure joy and admiration that they watched their son perform and compete...

Oh if we all grasped that unselfishness 100% of the time ;) 

It's a sweet thing to see!
