My nephew graduated from Columbia Dental School last week. Not only have I been bragging about him a ton, but I was so touched to see a video from the event. His father graduated Columbia Dental several years ago and therefore was able to hood his son…how proud he must be!
Last Saturday night we were invited to a party to celebrate this amazing graduation. Unlike most of their friends, my children go to bed at 7:30. So for many years, a party beginning at 7 p.m. meant a rough night with the kids. Now, however, it’s really a fun time.
The kids love hanging with their cousins (they have over 20!) and they enjoy dancing. In fact, they were the first 3 occupants of the dance floor! And they even dragged me up there, which would not have happened had we come without them. :)
Throughout the night they would each approach me to inquire about the time; it was very exciting to them that we stayed until 10 p.m. And I was able to actually sit down and enjoy my meal which was very exciting to me! There were so many parties we attended when they were babies where I came home starving!
I guess I am just woefully cognizant of the fact that they really are getting older. But with that I am now able to easily get them to pose for some gorgeous shots!
