Bethany's Graduation

Last night Bethany graduated from iSchool High. Actually--and Bethany would totally want me to clarify--she graduated in December, but last night was the ceremony where she walked.

I loved it that so much of our family was able to come. My mom and dad; John's mom (Samantha); my sister, brother-in-law and Elissa; Rhonda, Troy and all four of the nieces. Chase even got to drive in from Sky Ranch.

It was an evening of celebrating our daughter--who we are very proud of.   And while the people with the long drives had to leave after the ceremony, the rest of us went to dinner and wound up laughing and swapping stories....teasing the nieces about their boyfriends (past and present)...laughing at Chase's lack of an iPhone (not working for AT&T anymore has drawbacks) and just generally appreciating the joy of family.

Bethany, you are a most wonderful part of us.  We love you deeply.
