This just in.......

My daughter graduated yesterday!!

What a beautiful day yesterday. The temp was great and there was a breeze blowing so we wouldn't get too hot. There were 360 graduates and 40 Valedictorians and 1 Salutatorian. The highest GPA earned was a 4.67!!! HOLY COW there are some smart cookies in that graduating class. The ceremony lasted 3 hours but it seemed to fly by. One of the most touching moments was when the principal called out the names of the students whose parents are currently deployed. Each child stood up and walked to the outside edge of their row, then their parents name was announced and where the parent is deployed. Lots of tears...let me tell ya. The Army was there streaming the graduation ceremony live via satellite for the deployed parents to watch the ceremony!! Okay, I'm getting choked up sooooo....I'll just move on to a few photos.

Today we are getting ready to head out to CA for my step-daughter's graduation. I am super excited!! Think safe thoughts for us while on the road and I will update you on our adventure sometime next week.
I hope you are all doing great....I really miss my blog buddies and I miss crafting!!
