a graduation, a birthday and a retirement

What a week! I’m still recovering from all of the excitement around our quiet little home.

Our youngest turned 16.

Our daughter graduated from high school.

Family came from Indiana, Idaho and our Texas Hill Country kids joined in the fun.

On Saturday the 11th my house contained 10 grand kids, their parents, a set of grandparents, an aunt and uncle, hubby and me!Β  25 in all!

We had to reserve two rows at the graduation.Β  We did look grand!

Here is our graduate

Daughter and Daddy…He’s getting emotional πŸ™‚ can ya tell?
