One chapter complete

Last week was the close of a big chapter in my daughter's life.

She graduated high school.

She was excited to have cords with tassels. Her reasoning?
"So I have something to play with during the speeches."

It's been a long and short 18 years. We've had the long nights where a project was put off until the last minute (coffee was my friend.. and life juice). We could also swear that the first day of Kindergarten was just a couple months ago (wasn't it?). We couldn't be more proud of her.

Dad gave a great speech at her BBQ afterwards. Yes, there were tears.

I could ramble on and on about all of her accomplishments and her plans and all the embarrassing moments of her life (I've been banned from posting THOSE pictures), but I'll put it simply...

Her next chapter will be an even bigger one.  College schedule is set and dorm room is reserved. 

And many .. many boxes of mac n' cheese and ramen have been purchased. 


  1. Best wishes to your daughter. You must be so proud of her!

    1. Thanks, I will pass along those wishes to her. We are so very proud of her.
