Mission Accomplished!

This weekend we had not one, but two college graduations. Daughter #1 graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio, daughter #2 from The University of Miami. 1 day and 1,500 miles apart. The timing left a tad to be desired.

We flipped a coin, my beloved and I headed for San Antonio, their father and stepmother won a no expenses paid trip to Miami.

My beloved graduated from Trinity herself - never thought she'd be sending them a legacy. I went to Junior High right across from the University of Miami. The world is indeed a small and compact planet.

It's the oddest feeling. I didn't have empty nest syndrome when they graduated from high school or left for college. Nothing was finished, there was still 4 more years of college to finance. But now they are really and truly "done".

Motherhood is never really over but I can definitely close volume one. I wonder how volume two will read ?

Beautiful daughters. Well done, my friend.

As for Chapter Two, don't expect much relaxation there. In many ways, it's more adventurous than Chapter One.

Congrats or "Mazel Tov" as they say in my neck of the woods!
Our oldest graduates high school next month. I understand what you mean about college in comparsion although I've not lived that. Nice warm fuzzy post. :)
