no matter what you're wearing...

It was a week full fun.
The kind of crazy high school fun that makes you reminisce and wander back to those days. Each day with its own madness... celebrating decades, tackiness and school spirit. And realizing that yes, she is a junior. Yikes.


But what I loved most of all...
was that no matter what she was wearing, from Wacky Tacky to Homecoming splendor, it was who she is that shone through and through.
Linking up to Tuesdays Unwrapped at Chatting at the Sky... because a smiling girl who knows who she is, is one of the best gifts a mother can celebrate.

Dawn, this post demonstrates perfectly one of the reasons I love you so much.

It's obvious that you let your children be just who they are--you don't try to live their lives for them--but you enter fully into their lives. You celebrate with them, you support them, you laugh with them, you cry with them. Oh, they are blessed to have you as a mother.

And I know just what you'll say--you'll say you're the one who's blessed to have them as children. And the fact that you'd say that just proves my point.

The Grundeman family--blessed all around. :)

Oh the dress turned out so well, Dawn! Your children are blessed to have you as their mother. Your love for your children shines in your writing, and it shines from them as well. :)

Oh my gosh, I am astounded that you MADE that dress! I just scrolled down and read through all the posts I missed while I was away, and saw the one about the dress being almost done. Amazing! You are one talented and beautiful and loving mom!
