Graduation day and a new beginning!

The graduation day, proud boyfriend!!!
Proud Nana and Papa!

Daddy and his little girl! Mommy having a moment!


Can you believe 476 graduates from one school? Yes there she is poor thing last row! (lol) It's alphabetical!
Smiling and oh so proud!
Even her little brother was proud!
What a wonderful day full of smiles, tears, and laughs! To think I have a child going to college!?# OMG! Thank goodness she is staying home for at least a year maybe 2? She is my best friend and confidant, she knows me better then I know myself sometimes....she's the closest thing to a sister I will ever have and I am proud to say she is my Daughter!
Our favorite thing we say to eachother since she was only 2 years old
"Sam I love you bigger then the sky....mommy I love you bigger than the universe"
Cheers, Lisa;)

This is my first time really exploring your blog ... and it's wonderful. Your daughter is getting ready to launch herself and it's a scary and exciting time for all of you, I know. Take good care of your precious family.... When should we be looking for you on RMS / TV.

Helen thank you so much for dropping in! Yes it's very exciting and scary for all of us (lol)! We are suppose to be the last show of the first season which means I think the first of September some time don't have the exact date yet but will keep everyone posted! Thanks again for stopping in! French;)

Congratulations on your "Mini Me" graduation. My daughter went to a junior college and lived and home the first two years and it was a blessing. I wasn't ready to let her go before then either. She is now a first grade teacher. I have two more to graduate and I want time to slow down!! My daughter is getting married and moving 3 1/2 hours away in July and that will be hard...the tears have already begun. Twin

What a beautiful daughter you have! Having just been through the graduation of my son I understand the mixture of emotions it brings on. My son was my third to graduate (their class had 450+ students also) and I have one more child to go. My daughters are my best friends also which is the greatest blessing in the world! I have six sisters but I'm not very close to any of them which makes me sad, so I'm glad my daughters and I are close. I just have to say to that you have a nice looking family and your daughter is absolutely beautiful! Glad she can stay with you one more year while she starts college. Cindy

The most emotional day of my life was the day my (now 25 year old) daughter graduated from HS. It was the first big cross road in her life...I still get misty-eyed when I see (or read about) someone else experiencing it. The really cool thing is that your relationship will take on a whole new dimemsion now - adult to adult - and, believe me...it is amazing and wonderful! The best is yet to come...

French! Your daughter is so beautiful!!!! She looks so much like you! You looked so proud, as you should be! It's wonderful that you two have such a close relationship! At this point in her life, I am sure she sees the value in having such a loving mother! What a lucky girl.. or young lady I should say. :) Hugs, Donna
