Proud....and getting VERY old...

Well it was bound to happen....I am now not the only child in my family cross over the finish line of high school! My brother, Andrew, just last week graduated from high school! I'm so very proud of him....while starting to feel really old all of a sudden! This is pretty weird! He was home schooled his whole life like I was....but somehow had the magic touch and my parents sent him and my sister to a SUPER private school for his last year! (I begged my parents all 3 years of highschool to go to "regular" school...to no avail[but I consider myself VERY lucky now seeing all the homework he had to go through!!])
Anyways, Andrew was part of the first graduating class of the school ever! So there was a HUGE group of 5. lol! I'm sure it worked out nice in the training aspect during the year being focused more on than just one in 500 students! :)
I definitely started getting teary eyed a couple times during the graduation....and at the end....I looked UP to Andrew and said, "Congratulations on becoming a big boy now!" It's weird being a little but big sister!
Here are some pics from the night!




We did a fun shoot a couple weeks ago with Andrew that I'll post about soon!:) Congratulations Andrew!! I'm so proud of you and CAN'T WAIT to see what God has planned for your BRIGHT future! :)

I love you all!!! The interns and I are having SUCH a blast! I'll post about it soon! Hopefully I'll get caught up SOMETIME soon!

Cait- I'm a senior, class of '09!! YEAH! ;) Andrew- on second thought, you might have to fight me or my brother for the job with Beka.. she always calls me her PA (personal assistant) ;).

*teary eyed* You and Andrew look so sweet together. Anyone can see the bond between you two - such a hopeful and wonderful thing to behold!

People don't realize how important it is for siblings to have a high opinion of each other. Respect from the people who know you best is PRECIOUS!
