For years, Grandpa Rowan seems to have always greeted me by saying, "Hey Anne, how's my college co-ed?" For a while I was like, what the heck does that mean?! I eventually just asked him~
Well Grandpa...this college co-ed has gRaduAtEd!
Daddy literally lifted me up on this ledge so I could
get a cute photo in my robe.
Felt like a little kid at that moment,
one who still gets piggy back rides from her daddy,
or plays dress-up in her mama's prom dresses.
~not this grown person graduating college~
These two people have both time and time again
lifted me up on ledges,
then stood back and watched me shine.
May not always be a kid,
but I will always have my mama and daddy.
5 Cousins!!! Felt like such a party.
Everyone kept saying
"Wait, just one more, just one more. Hold on!"
Out of the corner of his mouth Spence says,
"Just 6 more minutes, just 6 more minutes!"
We live right across the street from each other.
As dad and Ty joke,
"What's the best kind of prize? A surprize!"
Surprise Sunday visits from Spence were always prizes.
Ty-boy's like my best friend.
Can't help but play when we're together.
*Love you Brumsy*
Call, sweet boy, couldn't be at my first ceremony
because of a job interview, but ran
there, literally, from his apt. and brought me
flowers as we were walking out.
*Love you dudes*
Chase was able to catch us the next day for breakfast,
and for a rival game of BYU (my school) v. Utah (his).
Seeing as how it was my graduation, my school won!
*Je t'aime mon frere*
And lastly Ky Ky, as one of my 'special' friends
from forever, came to see me "walk".
The memories we share from a lifetime of sisterhood...
books could not hold them all.
As we have said to each other for years,
"I wonder where I'd be right now if I didn't know you."
I'm glad I do know you Ky.
*Love you forever*
I may not always be a kid,
or a college co-ed,
...but I will always have my family.
I am so grateful for the education I received from BYU
and the support and love from my family
the whole way through.
