For those of you who have gone seamlessly through your kid's education.... you probably can't really understand how I felt seeing dd21 in her cap and gown. I'm sure I'll be happy when dd19 graduates next year, but it feels expected. For dd21, who has had some tough moments, even taking time off while she decided it she wanted to transfer, stop or continue (she has been in college five years), dh and I were over the moon on Saturday. Dh was really cute... dd got her actual diploma right after the ceremony and dh looked at it, cradled it in his arms and said quietly to me, " I think I'll sleep with this tonight." I don't think he was kidding!! And even though dd has had some ups and downs with her college, she was beaming all day. I was so proud of her.
The first pic below is the four kids at baccalaureate on Friday night (I don't know when ds12 got almost as tall as his sisters- no wonder he had no clothes that fit!) and the second one is dd at the ceremony on Saturday. She was second-to-last, because they did all the graduate degrees, then all the BAs, then all the BS degrees, and she is a BS with a "W" last name. She didn't complain about the wait, though!!
