I Can’t Believe My Daughter is Graduating from College

When I started this blog, our oldest daughter, Cheyenne, was 12 years old! Twelve! Over the past 10+ years, she has grown into a beautiful young woman right in front of your eyes. Crazy, right?!

Graduating from College

Together, you and I, we’ve watched her learn to drive, head off to youth camp, attend mission trips, go to prom, start dating, graduate high school, get engaged, and then (soon after) married. It’s gone so fast!

This Friday she and her husband graduate from college! I don’t feel old. Do you feel old? When I tell others that she is graduating – FROM COLLEGE – the first thing they typically say is,

“You aren’t old enough to have a kid graduating from college!”

I know, right?! But apparently I am… and she’s doing it anyways!

My baby, my oldest daughter, is finishing another chapter in her fascinating journey of life. She continues to mark off milestones just as one would expect and hope.

Although with her college classes, she isn’t just checking things off; she is also taking names and kicking some booty doing it. She loves school, really enjoys learning (looks like homeschooling worked out well for her) and is actually sad to be graduating. She’s made great friends, excellent grades, and a lifetime of memories.

Alas, the time has come to walk that stage, bring home a Bachelor’s Degree, and head out into the workforce.

Oh, and the fun part?

She majored in Marketing.

You know; the field her dad and I have found ourselves living in for the past 10 years because of the blog. That part amuses me a bit considering she’s always been the least interested in what we do.

Crazy how it all comes around full circle though, right? All I know right now, at this moment, is how incredibly proud Colby and I are of both her and Nic. They’ve worked effortlessly to keep their grades up, get married, hold steady jobs, build a house, and push through to the finish line. As a parent, there’s not much more we could ask for.

Congratulations to the Class of 2018!

Now to see the places they’ll go and the things they’ll do!
