Congratulations, Kristen!

My daughter, Dana, made this video for her sister as a graduation gift. We all laughed and cried. You tend to forget over the years about all the things you did as a family. 

And now with our youngest graduating H.S., I'm feeling nostalgic and a little sad to close the door to their childhood.  Seeing these clips reminds me how precious these moments are and I'm so happy to have them to look back on.  I know I'm the mom, but I get choked up every time I watch this.

Check back.... I'm working on a post about how Dana made this movie...

Diana-- just had to leave you a little note to say how beautiful your girls are-- and what a lovely testament they are, to all that you gave and put into being, their "mom".
Glad I stopped by! valerie
