And just like that…A Girl Graduates from College

9 May

 

 

Meredith Graduation Inslee

What seems like just yesterday, ’twas four years ago, I was dropping Meredith off at Indiana University for her freshman year…and now, she’s graduating.  In four years and with a job.  Where has the time gone?  How did my little girl, grow up so fast? She has become a bright, smart, funny, caring, beautiful young woman. And how in the world do I have a college graduate?  Holey Moley!

Life, so they say, is but a game, and we let it slip away…

22 years in review…or at least a few pics I was able to get my hands on. 🙂

    Best. Tribute. Ever. You two and your whole family are blessed to have each other. Meredith is the kind of person that is a pleasure to be around, pretty, witty, and bright. Sweet as a peach. God bless you Meredith on your graduation weekend and beyond!
