Mini-SGCC’s Grad Bash, that’s what!
That’s right. On June 2, 2012, my baby girl graduated from high school. I’m still having a hard time wrapping myself around that one! It seems like only yesterday, I was dropping her off for her first day of kindergarten. Where did the time go? It’s whizzed by so quickly that it all seems like a blur. I need to catch my breath!
Of course, Mr. SGCC and I are so incredibly proud of our daughter’s accomplishments – especially this past six months since her accident. Under the same circumstances, a lot of kids would have just given up on school. But, Mini-SGCC didn’t. She not only persevered, despite her injuries and physical limitations, she triumphed and graduated with honors! Now, in a few short months, she will begin a new chapter in her life at college. As excited as I am for her to continue on her journey, I know that I will be lost without her. I take some comfort in knowing that she will call regularly – even if it’s only to tell me she needs more money in her debit account!
To mark this auspicious occasion, Mr. SGCC and I hosted a big graduation bash for family and friends. It was held at The Boathouse, a gorgeous private waterfront venue owned by the Hyatt Regency here in Sarasota. I’ve spent the past month planning and organizing the party, which is why I’ve been noticeably absent here. I’d forgotten how much work is involved in putting together a big event, although I had tons of fun doing it. read more >>
