My sweet and precious girl- Jane Margaret graduated on July 25, 2014. A million or eighteen years flashed before my eyes that day. It's cliche, I know. But I so remembered her going to kindergarten. I remember some of the struggles along the way. I remember watching her grow and change and then grow and change all over again.
Her crazy big sister rode a bus through Manitoba for 12 hours, overnight, to cheer for Jane.
It made my heart so happy to see them together.
Cuz they're like..... super functional together.
Weird. I don't know how I got such funny children- such a perfectly normal family.
Jane and her super cute friends are all grown up.
It was time to celebrate.
Celebrate my beautiful daughter.
Take a break from struggling to finish things and reach goals, and just pause.
Take the time to celebrate just being here.
So after all the dinners and the ceremony, the endless speeches, the parade of grads in all their finery, there was time to just watch them kick off their shoes and be together on the dance floor, dancing tirelessly to song after song after song.
Strange to think of myself here- two kids graduated, two to go.
