So hard to believe.  My youngest will be 27 tomorrow, don’t blink ladies…it goes way too fast.  It seems like yesterday he was graduating from pre-school in his white pants and plaid jacket reciting his “I Want to be a Banker”.  His blonde hair in a mullet (haha – he hates that picture!)  Or was it yesterday I was sitting at the Greenville Park Ampitheatre watching him get his first t-ball award, or maybe the Little League game he made an unassisted triple play.   Wait, maybe it was 6th grade graduation when I took 30 pictures of him in his new suit and wire-rimmed glasses (oh wait, no film in the camera).  Oh…I remember…it was the first high school golf match when the golf bag was bigger than him and he beat all the guys twice his size.  It was just yesterday he was pitching a no-hitter or winning that regional game, or was I watching him receive his All-State award from golf pro Russ Cochran.  Oh…. I think it was yesterday he graduated high school – top of his class.  No wait, my memory is better now, he is playing in College Golf Nationals in Albequerque NM (5th place) or Palm Coast FL and getting that college regional win.  Oh, there he is coaching the local high school baseball team.  No, I remember now, it was Monday night  and he was coaching basketball with his first teaching position.  Blink.  Blink.  All I know is that all these seem like yesterday.  I have been through 7 different graduations, 4 sports, umpteen awards, girlfriends and breakups, and I love him more every day and everything seems like it went by way too quick.  Cherish your little ones because before you know it they will be 27 too!  Here are pictures of our dinner tonight.  My beautiful daughter and my son.  We came in 3 cars and at the end of the dinner went 3 different ways.  I miss all the days that seemed like they were just yesterday.  Blink..blink..there went more time.
