Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's day, we had an amazing weekend with my family.
Here is the graduate with her daughter, my adorable niece. My sister put herself through university as a single mom. When she started, she didn't even have a high school diploma and now she has her teaching degree. I can't begin to explain how proud we are of her.
We had been asked not to applaud until all the grads in a category had been on stage. But when they announced my sister's name, we all started hootin' and hollerin'. She woohooed back to us giving us 'I love you' signs with both hands in the air.
The big wigs on stage thought it was great and they told A. how wonderful it was that she had such family support. There were over 20 of us at the ceremony, even though each grad is only given 4 tickets. We were a formidable cheering section.
After the ceremony we met back at another of my sister's homes for the party. All A's loved ones who couldn't come to the ceremony were able to drop by and we had tons of laughs and yummy food that Mom made.
My sister H. made this amazing cake, as well as hosting the event. I come from pretty talented stock!
When the party wound down, my daughter got some play time with her new best friend, Kisa the boxer puppy.
Here is me all huge and preggo with the graduate, and no we didn't mean to match.
