My sister, Ruth's, graduation party was so much fun! We had a great turnout, lots of pictures, cute decorations (thanks to Jenna, Becca and Vinny for helping us set up!) plenty of food (thank you Grandma Hammond, Grandma Lindquist, Joanna, Jenna, Becca, Mrs. Miller, and Ms. Beth for bringing food), and so much fun!!! There were water fights, laughing, phone stealing and hacking, and endless smiles until the very end! Our amazing best friend, Joanna, got to play Uno for her first time ever with us, the Navises and the Groppis! We were extremely excited that our long-time friends, Jenna, Becca and Vinny Gropppi, who we hadn't seen in eleven years, came all the way from lower Michigan to be at Ruth's party and stay the weekend with us! Thank you to all our friends and family who came! We were so happy to see each and every one of you. It made us feel so special that many of you traveled several hours to celebrate with us! Thank you to everyone who helped with food, setup and cleanup. We couldn't have done it without you!
And last but not least, thank you, Ruth, for being my big sister, but also so much more! You are my best and most trusted friend. You are my photography assistant and co-conspirer. You occasionally make me mad, but more often make me happy. Pretty soon you will also be my chauffeur (you better not fail your driver's test ;) )! I love you "to the moon and back" and can't imagine life without you. On one hand, I would say I would never have any mature conversations because our other siblings are younger than us, but then again, we don't have mature conversations most of the time anyway! :)- Immaturity aside, I know you can accomplish whatever you want in life with your confidence and work ethic, so go out there and do something! I will always support you and be here for you! Always follow God's guidance and you will live a peaceful, fulfilling life. Love and prayers,
