Two Weeks Ago

My babies became college graduates...
 A friend of theirs took this photo. I love it. No need to say more.

 On a grey and drizzly Saturday morning, we gathered outside to watch the first ceremony - the graduation of the Schools of Business and Education.  Rachel has a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and Communications.  The red cord denotes honors in her major.

The second ceremony, for the School of Science, began just past noon. And the sun had finally put in an appearance, so we were all stripping off the layers of clothing we had needed to survive the morning.  We got to listen to another round of all the same speeches. Then I missed getting Becca during the recessional because she was way earlier in the pack than we anticipated.  But she was happy to recreate her victory moment.  She graduates with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science.  One very tough and demanding major.  We couldn't be prouder!

And we got through the day with a minimum of drama!

Now the girls are moved back home and we are still working to integrate their stuff and their schedules into our home and daily routine.

Way to go getting all your babies through college!! Hope all goes well as y'all get settled into new routines & schedules now that they are back home.

You have as much to be proud of as the girls do! Congrats to you all. Hope you get everything into a flow pretty soon, and can carve out some time for yourself. Back to being a Mom again might be a bit of an adjustment. Just don't forget they are adults now, and you don't have to do everything for them. Good luck with this new life adjustment. Just when you think you have an empty nest, the baby birds fly back, but in some ways, you will love it (when you're not annoyed at them).
