I swear; I blinked. And my little girl grew up on me. Today was the big day: high school graduation. I managed to get through the event with a minimum of tears (though my headaches really debilitated me). And while I remembered the sunscreen, I forgot my neckline, so I’m sporting a pretty nasty burn from the throat to my cleavage. Still, what’s a little pink skin compared to my daughter’s big day? So, without further ado, a few photos to mark this momentous occasion:

Receiving her diploma

The turning of the tassel

My new grown-up, mature daughter (sticking her tongue out at the camera)

The whole family

With her friends after the shedding of the cap and gown. Th-th-th-that’s all folks!
