May 19th, 2008

Today was a big day.  My oldest daughter (only daughter besides Kinnick) graduated from High School.  Kirsten and Mom (me) are pictured above.  Kirsten has been a wonderful daughter.  I can't say that I've ever had any problems with her.  She's been a joy all of her life.  Well.....the first 3 months of her life, she was a bit of a pain.  She had terrible colic - I wasn't sure any of us would survive those 3 months.  She's growing up so fast.  It seems like she was Kinnick and Carver age just a year ago.  I don't know what I'm going to do when she moves out on her own.  I'll really miss her.

Today was also my 40th Birthday.  I was so overwhelmed with emotion and the thought of my daughter graduating that I didn't think too much about turning 40.  I really don't feel 40, but I am.  We had some cake and ice cream and will celebrate more when we meet my twin sister and her husband in Cabo later this month.

Both of you really look alike.
She is so pretty just like her mom.

Shanon, you don't look like 40, you look much younger than 40. What's the secret? :D

Happy birthday to you, happy graduation to your older kids, and hopefully they'll figure out Kinnick's issues with food/the tube SOON!
