I remember singing a song in Jr. High choir -- went something like, "turn around and she's one, turn around and she's four, turn around and she's a young girl heading out of the door"
or something like that
anyway, the gist is that they grow up and move on.
I did this graduation cake for a receraduate of Ursuline Academy -- grown up from a babe and moving on.
There were a total of 7 figures on the cake, I posted my favorites.
