Last week was quite the week
it was busy ~ but a good busy
you see this little girl
graduated high school
I won't lie to you ~ it has not been an easy road for this one
and we did not know whether this day would ever come
but she made the decision to go back to school in September
and she stuck to it and made it through
she was actually finished in January after her exams
and said she did it and was not going to bother with prom or graduation ceremonies
I am so glad she changed her mind!
prom was Monday ~ she looked stunning in her shimmering gown
it was navy blue and she had plenty of "bling"
so she shone just like the diamond she is
her boyfriend is pretty handsome too
they had a ball at prom
Thursday night was graduation
I won't lie and will tell you that I had tears in my eyes
I was bursting with pride
and I kinda love that she graduated from the same high school
that I did ~ 31 years ago!
love this shot of the girls with their Dad
and one with Mom
I wrote the following on Facebook when I got home after prom
and posted her pictures
I met this little girl when she was 2 ~ she soon had my heart and became my niece soon after.
She has grown into a beautiful young woman and seeing her tonight brought tears to my eyes
and a heart full of love.
I cannot wait until Thursday night to see her in her cap and gown.
I am so proud of you my Goosey Lucy ~ Love you forever Katrina xoxo
you done good kiddo ~ the sky is the limit
you can do whatever you want
and Auntie Lori gets a 3 year break until the next one
