So here's to you {Misses} Graduate


Can you believe that when I started this blog this was my baby. 
My love child. My Lindsburger. My sweet little ball of sweetness.
Ok, I'm getting a little delirious….because she wasn't always a sweet little ball of sweetness. There were a few days of sour. 
Just a few.

Last week she said goodbye to High School. Adios. See you later Gator. Chow.


Some of my longtime readers will remember these babies….Lolo wore them to her graduation.
Linds will be creating her own path in college…but she walked across the stage in her big sister's shoes. 
And I think that is just awesome.

The more bling the better….that's our motto.

Linds was #416 out of #450 kids. (I know!!!) to cross the stage. I said if they did it in order of cuteness, being bright and funny and not by that old standby "alphabetical order" she would be first in line! 
And no, I'm not biased about my people.

It was a great weekend filled with family and friends. I'll share some party pics soon!!
The first family. Of our house.  
You'll be glad to know that Linds and I both survived her 2 day loooooonnnnnngggg orientation. 
There should be a law against those if you'd like to know my true thoughts; which I know you do.

Congratulations to Lindsay...and to you! We have the opposite problem. Our name is always near the beginning and then we have to sit through all the other names. ;)

Oh congratulations to her! How exciting. And you got great pictures too!

I agree that Linds would be first if names were called in order of cuteness. Since I've been involved in my share of orientations I have a pretty good idea of your thoughts on this manner.

Willow said...

Congrats Linds !!
The baby boxer your mom ordered will be ready next month ;))
Your mom did book your flight back to Boston right ?? hee hee

Congratulations to Linds! I've been reading your blog for years, watching the girls grow. Time sure does fly. You'll be an empty nester soon. But, hey, I've been there for years and it's not so bad. With the parenting done, there's time to rediscover your own individuality. I was surprised I still had some.

What a beautiful family you are! It's fun to see our children's accomplishments, but hard to see them fly away too.
When that happens, don't forget to complain on your blog so we can all identify with you!
