'Your time as a caterpillar has expired. Your wings are ready.'


Almost there ~my niece Julia Foy standing in line with her senior classmates, waiting for Pomp and Circumstance ~ it's finally graduation day!
Ready to receive that paper

Julia graduated in the top 10% of her senior class of 510!

With Aunt Deanne and Uncle Alan Foy
With her two aunts who wore the same shirt to Julia's graduation (Aunt Kay and Aunt Ann ~ or as Ann dubbed us ~ the Doublemint Twins)
With big sis Sarah
With cousin Shelby
and with cousins Kelly and Holly
After a delicious meal from Stroud's and yummy desserts, Julia opened her gifts. Her Aunt Deanne made this beautiful afghan

No matter where you go or what you do, I know you'll always shine bright. So proud of you and all you've accomplished and blessed to call you my niece. Love you always!
Congratulations, Julia!
You did it!

Julia's Mother's Day Out graduation was in May, 2003. Today, she graduates from high school. I love this girl so much & am excited to see what her future holds. ~Julia's mom, Jane, posted this on Facebook today. 
So sweet. I had to share it.
