Me and my girl...on our way out the door...
posing for one more picture before we left!
Dinner out the night before to celebrate our girl. She got strawberry and I got lime. : )
She attended a two hour practice early in the day, and then we joined her at the Performing Arts Center.
And there she is...my firstborn. Graduating. Yes...tears were shed. It is hard to convey the feelings I had in my heart. But those of you that have gone before me know exactly what I mean. : )
And after the beautiful ceremony...our Madison Marie!!! She graduated with Honors!
Proud family. : )
One with her Daddy...I remember watching these two as he walked her to elementary school...
one with her Momma...
and one with her man. : )
The beautiful necklace is a gift from her Godmother and my dear friend Marian. : )
Our oldest and our youngest. : )
There was a lovely reception afterward with fancy sandwiches and fruit and drinks. And cake. Always cake.
Happy Graduation, Madison Marie. Do your thing. Love what you do. Stay classy. Be yourself. Pray. And remember always...Mommy loves you.
