The GrAd-e-ate y'all believe it!! We "dun gadeated"! Not only does Beloit have runnin' water and 'lectric. Now I know of at least one High School "gaduate". That's right !!!

Katie enjoyed an excellent graduation and amazing party thanks to all of you. We were blessed with a beautiful day, great food and fun and wonderful family and friends to share it all with. A big thank you to those of you (Aunt T and Kayla) who helped me with the food and decorating. We couldn't have done it without all your help. Another thank you to all of you who took the time to come out to the party. I understand that it is a little harder these days to get passports. And yet another thank you to those who couldn't make it but called or sent a card.....again Thank you. Last but not least "thanks" to that one person who provided a free guided tour of my messy house. I knew the day couldn't go by without at least one embarrassing moment. 'Really appreciated that!!!!

All in all, like many others in this family we have survived our first high school graduation. Now on to bigger and better things for our first little bird to leave the nest. Fortunately, I have just a few years to recover before the class of 2014 graduates.
Now for all you "young" parents with little ones... the next time someone tells you to savor every moment you have with them, because they grow up too fast. Believe me when I tell you that is absolutely true!!... and give all those cute little babies an extra hug and kiss from their "dumb old aunt beck".
