Graduating Memories…

My oldest Granddaughter… Taylor… graduates from High School tomorrow…k6351412

Just one tiny step in the path k12847487 she will follow through her life…

but, an important one

Yes, she “is all that” as her little sister… Kennedy… tells her…

Little brother just loves his Taylor…having fun and being her little brother!

In my eyes she is pretty special!…

I’ve watched her grow from day one of her birthk9925051

Being my first Grandchild… my heart k11084623 got caught in her awe… a part of my son… a beautiful angel  sent to us from God…

She has been a joy to us and we feel blessedk9249506

We will have a family cook out k4888068 to celebrate her Graduation Ceremony tomorrow… and then Sunday will be her “big” graduation party… with all friends… family invited…

I just checked the weather… and we are lucking out… a beautiful sunny day in the forecast… k13940276

I know my daughter-in-law and son have been so busy making this a day to remember for Taylor…

The plans… the invitations k5714560 … the menu… the musick5432485 … the decorating… getting enough tables/chairs…

It takes all hands on deck…

I’m bringing appetizers… and was asked to put together a photo collage of my girl

Yes, I feel she’s mine at times… forgive me… but, she has my heart…

Melanie gave me lots of photos of her… and along with all that I had… over 100 were scanned… cropped… ran off… cut to fit… and placed on a Congratulations Board  k10548896 I found…

It gives what I call a “representation” of her young life so far…
