Katie Graduates!

My little sister graduated from high school last weekend!  It's crazy that her graduation was 12 years to the day after mine.  As with most graduations that involve 450+ people, her ceremony was loooooong, but there were 2 good speeches, and 1 not-so-good one (some smart kids are smart and witty.  And some are :))! 

The kids weren't allowed to take their cell phones into the ceremony, so meeting up with Katie after the ceremony was a bit of a challenge, but we found her!

Dad, Mom, and Katie!
Matt, Me, and the graduate!
Katie and Aunt Michele!
With her diploma (and her shot record?  They put a copy of their shot record in every one's diploma?) Which is really only funny because her actual doctor's office LOST her shot record when the Pediatrician's office sent it over - I'm sure her physical for college was fun!
My parents with Katie and Stevie!
Stevie and Katie!
After the graduation ceremony we had lunch at the Oceanfront.  Sooooo good!  I think I ate every single bite of my crab cake sandwich, fries, and key lime pie! I was hungry!

I can't believe that she is going to be leaving for college in (less than) two months, and she'll turn 18 two months from today!  Craziness! Fortunately she got an iPhone 4 for graduation, so once I qualify for my upgrade in October we'll be able to Facetime.   The kids tell me all the time that they don't want her to leave and go away!  Ha!  Congratulations Katie!

  1. My daughter got her shot records when she picked up her diploma too. How weird is that? Maybe because it's medical info the school has to give it back? I don't know. But congrats to Katie, she (and all of you) look so great!
