Today our baby graduates Middle School. I am so proud of all our children, and Allison is now stepping into her spotlight. She is the youngest of our family, and the nostalgia of all of the big moments is what I am remembering today. She is the best of all of us. We are all so proud, because we all had a influence on her. When you say it takes a village to raise a child, Allison comes to my mind. Her brothers and sisters are old enough to have all had opinions - from naming her to discipline. Sometimes unasked for, others gratefully considered. We all watched Allison grow from one of the world's most beautiful babies to such a lovely young lady. The influence of her sister and cousins and family and friends is remarkable. They take my breath away. Today is hers. Congratulations and God Bless to all the graduates. To my graduate, thank you for being you. Go get 'em sweetie pie.
We are hitting the road in the next few days. Keep in touch. We will too!
