Celebrating AUTUMN! 🍂

This post is all about celebrating Autumn.  No, I'm not talking about the season, I'm talking about one of my nieces who is a Senior in high school this year.

One of my favorite things about having three sisters is all the nieces and nephews that come along with them.  So even though I have an empty nest of my own, I still feel like I have kids in school.  And although this school year isn't even half over, we've already had lots of fun celebrating special times in Autumn's last year of school.

To start her senior year off right, having casual senior pics done was a must!  And as one would expect, she would have no other photographer capture these moments but Dillan :)

Football season is in full swing here now and we recently had our Homecoming game and festivities as well.  Our sweet Autumn was selected by her peers as a representative on the 2016 Homecoming Court and had a fun-filled week making memories that will last a lifetime.

Autumn was beautiful at the game that night....and her dad cleaned up pretty well too!

I'm not sure how schools in other areas do theirs, but our students have their Homecoming Dance the following night.  Autumn and her boyfriend, Hunter are such a sweet couple and looked great all decked out for the dance.

But not only is Autumn a pretty young lady that loves all things glitter and glam, she is also one heck of a softball player too!  Last Monday night was Senior Night at their last regular season home game.  These girls have been playing together for so many years now that it will be strange not seeing them on the field next year.

There was a special ceremony before the game with each Senior girl being introduced and escorted by her parents.  I love the smiles on their faces in this picture!

Autumn is one of the pitchers and when she's not pitching, she is usually playing in left field.

She's already had a college talk to her about a scholarship, so I'm sure she'll be able to continue playing the game she loves for a few more years. But she's not done with her high school career yet. Her team will hopefully be in the playoffs for the State Championship again this year...yes, I said AGAIN.  This would be their 3rd trip!  Lots of talented girls playing ball down here in South Georgia!

We'll all miss seeing Autumn wear the Lady Patriot uniform, but I'm certain no one will miss her more than her younger sister, Anna. Anna is a sophomore, so we'll be watching her the next couple of years carry on the family name with pride.

Time flies by so fast!  It's so hard to believe Suzanne will see her first baby leave for college next fall. I know at graduation there will be plenty of tears by all of us, but until then, we look forward to celebrating more of her accomplishments throughout this school year.   

 I'm so thankful for my large family and getting to do life with them!  They're such a blessing from the Lord and I don't know what I'd do without them.
