A Busy Time for an Artsy Girl (The completed post)

Senior year... for this creative, kinda shy (well, very shy), reserved, and non-spontaneous kiddo!

AP Studio Art Concentration Project finally finished and submitted to satisfy AP College Board requirement...

Driving lessons...

College placement tests taken...

Class selection after appointment with counselor...

Driving lessons...

Several months ago, "I decided since I don't like big crowds, I am not going to prom." okay, if you're sure...

Two weeks ~ that is 14 days before prom... "There has been a change of plans... I'm going to the prom." Mom gasps and sends out emergency call to oldest beautician daughter for help...

Driving lessons...

busy work schedule...

"Patrick" comes to meet the parents, have lunch and spend Sunday together. Parents think "Patrick" is a delightful, well mannered, bright and very personable young man. Oh, and very cute too.

comment: "Mom, I have something to tell you." Mom gasps inside and retains complete composure on outside. "What?"

"Patrick" and I are dating. And he wants to know if I can go with him Friday night to his grandmothers. :) aww... sweet.

back to driving lessons. She tells me she likes the theory of driving, just not the act of driving. We're working on it very slowly. She has even bought a car from her BIL and is paying for insurance. Guess that's so mom can be her chauffeur.

In between scrambling for a prom dress there are meetings at school...
and art show...

here are some pictures from last night.

so, if you are wondering why I've not been commenting as much lately, it's Abbey's fault!

PS Am I the only idiot that pushes the Publish Post button instead of the Save as Draft Button?

Ha! LDH, I've done that, too. Will wait for the conclusion with anticipation! Sincerely, Susan

Wow! Abbey is tremendously talented! (and beautiful as well) My oldest son is a sophomore and I can't imagine him being a senior. I know it will be here before we know it.

And, yes, I've clicked Publish Post accidentally many times myself.

Fondly, Michelle

Is that a drawing of Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice I see in the art show photo?

Driving lessons = stress for me!

Actually what happens with me is I click the save as draft button instead of the publish button then get upset with Blogger because my post didn't show up! lol

I had such fun catching up on a few of your latest posts, and this one about Abbey is a delight! She is a precious young woman. It is wonderful that God gave her the gift of creating such beautiful and expressive art!

In joy,
Laurie
P.S. Psalm 91 is my favorite verse, especially v. 4. I have turned to it so many times for my own comfort and also in prayer for others. I love the word picture it gives.

Such talent and beauty! Now if we can just get her to drive. :)

P.S. I sometimes hit the "publish" instead of "draft" button but you know you can go back into the post and hit "draft" again and it's all good and "drafty" again. :)

Abbey is stunning and talented too! What thrilling times for her and blessed you to get to share in the fun. I hope we will be treated to lots of prom photos!

What a beautiful talent she has! It is so nice to see our kids excelling at worthy goals!.

i have an 11th grade driver - (the 18 year old just got a car - on his own!) I know the "driving lessons" that are constant!

Sounds like a very special girl with a good head on her shoulders!!

And no you are not the only one who presses publish by accident - I am forever editing after I post - good thing I do most of mine in the wee hours before anyone is reading!

Ann said...

oh my driving lessons. I thought my daughter would never get it. I was scared to ride with her...lol
I always blame the kids too and YES I have hit publish when I meant to save as draft.

Julie said...

What a great post! I remember those days, although I had a son, no daughters.

I am so enjoying my visit to your blog. Thanks for your visit to mine. I will be back to visit again soon!

I push the post button instead of the save to draft button ALL THE TIME!! :)

Wonderful post Lorraine!
Abbey is a very talented artist!

My daughter Katie got her drivers license the summer after she graduated....only because she didn't want me to drive her to college every day!

And yes.....I constantly push the wrong button!
