Graduation Party

Katie's graduation picnic was last weekend.  I think that I am still recovering from all of the festivities in the past month!  And all of the emotions, too!  I loved the song "Graduation Day" by the four Freshman and have been singing it all day today.  Katie is off to her friend Ryan's grad party - I am feeling so many mixed emotions - very bittersweet day for me.

We are lucky and blessed to have so many wonderful friends and family who came to Katie's party last weekend to help share in our joy and happiness!

Here are some pictures that I would like to share with you:

We got an enormous pinata:

The big kids and younger kids enjoyed it!!!
Here's Katie with all of her friends:
