My Baby is a High School Graduate!

 Last night was a total mix of emotions.  Taylor loved wearing her cap & gown and she got a flower to carry in the procession.  Boy, she was all about that flower.

When her name was called and she went up and got her diploma, there were lots of loud cheers and applause.  We actually caught that on the video.  Even the people seated around us realized how special Taylor’s graduation was and a few of them were teary-eyed as well.  Taylor’s “boyfriend” Eric came to see her graduate and has a cameo in the video.  Also, during the singing, you can hear my granddaughter Ally singing along.

Yes, I was a crybaby, but then, did anyone really think I wouldn’t be?  I hope you enjoy the video.  The Bossman did an awesome job of editing the parts together.  There were some times when I had to stop to wipe the tears.  I ended up giving Brandy, my middle daughter, the video camera to get the important parts.

All in all, it was a wonderful night and I’m so very proud of Taylor.

What a fantastically special milestone. Congratulations Taylor. She looks like she really enjoyed her grad. Beautiful girl. I'm so happy for you all - thankful she's come so far.

I would cry for sure if I was her mom.
