My oldest presents her thesis

My oldest is a graduate student at Washington University in St. Louis.  Tonight she presented her thesis, which I guess means she graduated.  She applied for a third year, but that's just teaching.  She will find out Monday if she gets it.  Wow, where did the time go?  How did she grow up and become an adult when I wasn't looking?

I will always see her as my little girl, but she makes me so proud.  She has accomplished so much.  I'm busting right now.  I wish I could have been there to hear her read some of her works.  She's a creative writing major and will most likely have a novel published soon.  I'll be sure to let you know when you can buy it :)  My older son said it should be called "My Life as an American Woman"  He's funny.

That smiley guy is her boyfriend of about 5 years.  He works for a law firm in Austin, Texas.  They met in college.  He was the quarterback.  He's trying to decide if he wants to become a lawyer.  The firm told him if he works for them for another year, they will pay for him to go to law school.  He already took the LSAT's and got admitted to several law schools.  Oh, to be young and have your whole life ahead of you.  My youngest adores him and I think my oldest does too :)
