Time is constantly moving faster and faster it feels! Each year, you look back and wonder… what happened to April, or May, or August, or October? We try to slow things down, but it just constantly keeps moving.
That is why my job is so incredibly important to me!
It allows me to preserve some of those very important milestones for my couples and seniors! One of those people that I had the pleasure recently to do it for was one of my senior spokesmodels, Maddie! I can’t believe I’m saying this, but she is graduating in just a few days!
I ask myself again, where has the time gone?!
I met Maddie back when she was 14 years old. She, too, was trying out for the volleyball club I was coaching! She stuck out very quickly as someone I knew I wanted on our team! She didn’t make it easy, though! She was sought after by several teams, for very good reason! So I definitely had my money cut out for me to prove that our team would be best for her!
She surely made us work for it!
In the end, she did end up playing on our team. Ever since then, it has been such a joy to watch her evolve on the court and grow up to be a beautiful young lady! Even when she was no longer on our team, I still stayed connected with her. Cheering her on from the stands whenever I could! She helped take her school team to States this year, and win!! What an achievement!
The world better watch out!
With all the she has already done, I know she is going to make a huge impact wherever she goes from here! The sky is the limit! And I’ll always be cheering her on! The friendships I have formed with each of the girls I have coached is so special! A bond has been made with each of them, and watching as they continue to grow has been such an honor!
A true blessing in my life!
Now to have so many of them as my spokesmodels this year; it is definitely bittersweet! I have loved every additional moment with them, but it is so crazy to think how fast the past six years have gone! I still haven’t grasped that fact! Maddie, you are one beautiful, smart, joyful, and determined person! Don’t let anything or anyone stop you! I can’t wait to see what the next four years brings for you! Who knows, I may even show up in the stands to cheer you on again come Fall at Kutztown! Until then, I hope you enjoy some of my favorites from your Masonic Village Senior Session.
