This week was a welcome relief from the drama. Sophia graduating from sixth grade, while not a college graduation, is definitely something to celebrate. Being one of four daughters, I think it's important to celebrate them each individually whenever possible. I love being surrounded by family and friends on these special days. I am grateful to have such loving in-laws that are able to watch our children grow. Times like these always make me miss my parents because I want so much to be able to share all of these moments with them. I DO feel that my parents are watching over us, but of course it's not the same as having them physically here.
Watching Sophia standing next to me at 12 years old and 5' 6" makes me smile. I am 5 '3" on a good day, so I love that she inherited her Dad's height. Of course, she doesn't like being taller than her Mom and friends and is always hunching over to talk to us. Now though, she is starting to appreciate her height and is coming out of her shell.
I was excited to go to Vegas with the girls. Vegas is always fun and I knew there would be lot of laughs. The dinner that night was so much fun! I enjoyed getting to know Brandi better and was happy that we both got to see another side of each other.
