A well-deserved celebration for hard-working graduate!
Our first grade teacher!
Brother, and my mom and her three brothers!
My dad's side of the family.
My grandmother's cousin Collette, her husband, and son...who, by the way, threw my mom into the lake when they were younger. I don't remember who told me the story when I was about five, but for years afterwards, whenever I'd see him, I'd cross my arms and scowl at "the mean guy who threw my mom in a lake." I was apparently quite frustrated at the seeming lack of justice in that whole chain of events.
