Little Bit and Middle Child 2007
My mother-in-law saved the Mister's and his sister's robes, honor cords, and the caps worn for their high school graduations in the 90's. In 2007, my father-in-law earned his Master's degree after retiring from his lifelong career as an engineer. We loaded up the offspring and drove across Texas to attend Papa's graduation. The girls were impressed with Papa's robes, so Gram broke out their Daddy and Aunt's high school graduation gear for a little dress-up fun.
Little Bit dancing around her solemnly posed sister was pretty standard as our youngest gladly filled the clown role in her pre-K days. She planted the secondary cap upside down on Katie's head and proceeded to twirl and prance around and around her big sister. That big sister is currently looking for a dress to wear to cross a stage indicating the passage from middle school into her own high school days. It will likely be all too soon that the offspring will be receiving their own robes and posing for just these sorts of pictures again. I wonder if Little Bit will grace those future photos with her Happy Dance?

I think that you choose words in a unique way. The sound of them jingles along in a melancholy way (if that's not an oxymoron. Or even if it is!) I think it's just beautiful and I can feel the love for your family come through them x said...

I simply adore your photos! Everything looks so rich and beautiful. You gave me some great ideas on where to go to find stuff. The room looks great.

It won't be long and they will actually be wearing that cap and gown. Time moves so fast and they grow up to fast. Make time and enjoy!
