And then we were off to Mississippi to see the PRINCESS of the family Graduate from High School.
18 1/2 years ago this little pink bundle came into our family. 3 whole days old! The very next week her Papa, who thought he had been handed a gift from HEAVEN(he had actually) went to the Credit Union and opened her a College fund. It wasn't going to be a huge amount, I think maybe $5 a week is what we could afford but almost 19 years later it's a nice little nest egg to get started at Mississippi State University! Maybe buy her clothes, her books, some lab stuff or whatever she wants. Anyway this was her getting $1,000 of her money in $100 bills.. It was fun for us and she was very surprised. It took her a while to really see how cool it was!
Papa with the girl who can do NO wrong :)
On Graduation Day we had a party for THE GIRL ~ and I do think all that love her mostest drove a car!
