Nikki Hawkins's Journal
Written Aug 18, 2013 10:11pmI can not express just how excited we are that our girl is actually starting college tomorrow! She has been busy hanging with friends - driving and working. She has a part time job with my uncles company! She actually climbed over 200 steps to get to the top of a lighthouse recently - she just continues to amaze me. We just had a hearing test and I am happy to report that no new damage - obviously we would like for her hearing loss to get better (but that is not how it works)! She has some outpatient testing coming up soon to look at just exactly how much damage was done to her hormones. Please continue to pray for her! I know I am a thankful mom - "thank you Lord for my girl"....
Class of 2013
Written Jun 5, 2013 6:57amI can not express just how proud I am of Nikki! She went from a life threatening and life altering disease in 2006 to graduating along side her peers - never missing a beat. She had to relearn to write and tie a shoe and at the same time be a honor roll student. My daughter - my hero - my blessing - high school graduate Nicole Brooke Hawkins!
Almost GRADUATION TIME
Written May 27, 2013 9:28pmWow - I knew it was sneaking up on me but heck it is just about hovering over my head at this point. We are in full swing getting things ready for a Graduation Celebration! I have been going through old photos and added a few new ones and a few old ones. I still can't believe that my little princess is graduation high school - am I really that OLD??? She has been through more than most - which makes this milestone that much more meaningful. She has enrolled in a jr college close to home - she said she is just not ready to leave the nest and WE aren't either!!! So THIS SUNDAY anyone near Lake Carroll Baptist Church is welcome to service - they will be honoring the Seniors and Nikki is one of them. She gets to walk down in cap and gown on Sunday. Then Tuesday she graduates and then the weekend after that - we party! Summer plans so far - she has landed a part time job (go Nikki) and is working VBS at church and has a week in CAMP. Then some out pt hospital testing to round out our summer - then we should be back in full swing - this time I will have a ELEMENTARY kid, HIGH SCHOOL kid and a COLLEGE kid. Thanks for checking on my gal. Penny
