All big and graduated

When I met my, sister from another mister, Jakie, her kids were little. They were younger than mine and yet somehow her oldest graduated from High School last week. This makes my mouth hang open. Carolina is heading off to college, say what?

I wouldn't have missed her graduation for anything. I am extremely proud of her. She is the kind of kid that if the subject doesn't rank high, in her priorities, she will leave all the work until the 11th hour and then burn the midnight oil, pull an all nighter, race like a lunatic to get to school to turn the paper in by it's deadline, barely making it and magically get an A. It's just how she rolls. It makes her mother nuts, it makes her sister nuts and it makes me nuts but it works for her. She is a really good kid who just marches to her own beat. She is also extremely talented as a singer, dancer and performer and will excel in college and into her future on the stage. Hah, she takes drama to a whole new level.

Only teenagers look this good at 7.30 am. Caro and Lucy
