A High School Graduate

The last 2 weeks have been just C-R-A-Z-Y!
The end of school is always very busy, but this year I had a senior!
Graduation preparations take a lot of time and effort for the parents (especially since the senior class was in The Virgin Islands the week before graduation!)
Some of us {helicopter Moms} were busy decorating the gym during graduation rehearsal.
It was a little emotional to watch! I got a little teary-eyed watching!!! This is such a close-knit class. The truly LOVE each other, so it is hard to imagine them going their separate ways.
Talk about emotional...seeing your child wear that black cap and gown can do you in!
Maeghan, Laura and Shae. (Heading to Simpson University in Redding, University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va.)
Scott's sister Laurie came from Texas and brought our niece Hannah! Shae was sooo surprised!
My parents came from Phoenix. They are here for the summer! (YaHoo!!!)
My children have been so lucky to have all four of their grandparents close by! What a blessing!
Shae graduated with high honors and won a few scholarships, including the Chamber of Commerce Scholarship from the City of Palo Cedr0, where her school is located. She was one of 4 to receive it out of several hundred applicants!
She has been such a sweet daughter, and it has been a blessing to watch her grow. She has matured into a wonderful young woman and I am excited to see what the next chapter in her life has for her!

This is truly CRAZY to me, not too long ago ,I would run into you shopping (Target where else) my child in my cart and yours were just walking along side with you. They were so little and mine was just born. Shae is a beautiful girl Inger, you and hubby have done well. Congrats on her graduation, and just think you now have an excuse to travel to Virginia as much as you want/need/can.
