Graduation day

Sunday, May 23, 2010

Hot. hot and sunny. about the worst possible scenario weatherwise for this heat detestor. BUT. it was only 2.25 hours, i wore a nice light top and pants and took 2 jugs of ice water. It was a lovely ceremony, my kid graduated Cum Laude. THAT was a surprise he hadnt told me!!
Then we came back to Malone and i took everyone (Billy, his girlfriend Sarah, my mom and stepdad, Kevin and I) out to lunch. it was fun, the food was delicious.
Billy and Sarah have gone to see his dad, then then will stop here. they leave Thursday morning for Minnesota. I am going to miss him...i know..hes been gone to college for 4 years. But its only 50 mins away not 20 hours!!!
anyhow..i can take a deep deep breath. I put 3 kids through college (Bill did most all of his on his own). They are all happy, well adjusted, productive members of society..not a one of them has gotten into trouble..they all worked while they were still in high school and all the way through college.
For once i'm going to give myself a small pat on the back...and say i think i did ok. i wasnt a perfect mom, but i did ok.

    Hunny you did a FANTASTIC JOB with your children. You have every right to be a very proud momma. I'm proud of you myself. Go ahead and give yourself a huge pat on the back from me Holly because you did great !

There's not many ppl who can say that their kids have never gotten into trouble, you know the kind I mean, and there's not many who can also say all of their kids are college grads so take a HUGE BOW momma because hunny you DESERVE it !!!!!!!!

Bless you ! Love ya ! HUGS !
Alison

PS Congradulations Billy ! I'm so very happy for you, may your life be filled with love and joy and may you always find beauty in everything you see. Bless you.

    Just one day is all you'd want...then you'd say, "Thank goodness I'm done with that!" Congratulations on being a successful parent. Be proud of all he has accomplished and if you shed some tears, it will be ok.

    It's a mom's right to cry. I cried at the 5th grade awards ceremony. My youngest is officially a Jr. High student now.

    Wow, five cakes in one day?! Even just five basic non-wedding cakes would be a lot for one day. I don't know how you do it! Especially since that's not your only job...
Sorry you don't have air conditioning at school :(

    You must be very very good at what you do to be that busy. I wish I could come and taste one of your cakes.

I know when I am that busy I don't even have time to eat or exercise. Be careful to take care of yourself.

Glad you got the day off tomorrow so you can focus on your many orders, see what happens where you're good at something Holly ! :)

    Is this cake baking /decorating a business you have on the side? It sounds like it has really taken off as you are always baking.
