School Lockdown Outfit

Here's another What I she wore Wednesday. Isn't she adorable? I love her boots so much that I went and bought a pair like them for myself! Sorry Maddie, imitation is the best form of flattery!


Today I received a text from my high school daughter that said, "Mom, our school's on lockdown. Someone is armed in the building. I'm locked in a closet."

I can't tell you the fear and panic that came over me! This is my daughter in one of those horrible events you see on the news. A friend was with me at the time. She also has a teenage son in the same school. We jumped in her car to go to the school. We were halfway there when the lockdown was called off. There are apartment buildings behind the school where there were sightings of an armed man. He hasn't been found.

Yesterday I took away Madison's phone for a punishment. Before she left for school this morning I gave her back her phone despite the fact I had planned on grounding her for several days. I am so glad she had her phone for instant communication. I will never ground her from her phone again! (don't tell her)

Tonight I am loving on my children! I am so grateful they are safe. They are home.

Your daughter is so cute! When I was a freshman in high school we had that happen a lot. It's very scary. I'm glad she is ok...

That's so scary! Glad everyone is ok!

One time I was in class in college and a friend texted saying there was a gunman on campus. I seriously nearly peed my pants and screamed to the professor to lock everything down.

The guy was actually several blocks from campus and my friend overreacted.
