Jess-The Graduat!



My "baby" sister graduated from High School today! I guess she's not really a baby anymore, hasn't been for a while, but still it seems hard to believe that she is all done with High School & is on to bigger & better things. She is such the little smarty pants that one. She graduated with a 4.0 & got basically a full ride scholarship at Westminster. I couldn't be any more proud of her than I already am! She asked me if I would come & do her make-up this morning for the big event. I always have so much fun doing her make-up for special events, she is just so naturally gorgeous & it is fun to just sit & talk to her while I'm doing it. A lot of you out there that may or may not be reading this know Jessica & others don't. I can pretty much guarantee that if you are one of the lucky ones that knows or even has ever met her, she has had some sort of impact on your life. I am a completely different person because of having her as my sister. Even though she was born physically handicapped she's never let it get in her way. She has accomplished so much already & has the sweetest, strongest spirits of any one I have ever known. I could go on & on about Jess & how much she means to me, but I am already starting to cry writing this & thinking about it. So I will just say this, I consider myself to be one of the luckiest girls on the planet to not only know you but to be able to call you my sister. I love you Jess (if you're reading this) & thanks for being such an awesome example to us all! :)

Hey Laura...I can't beleive that's Jessica. She looks so beautiful and so much like you! Tell her congrats on graduating with a 4.0 and scholarship to Westminster...WOW!!! I decided to give everyone's blogs a run through and it has been so fun to see everyone. We sure can't wait to see you in a few weeks! Tell Jaden and Cam hello from us and make sure Mike has shaved any signs of facial hair...eeek that scared me! We love you. Oh, by-the-way, Chris spent at least two and a half hours the other night listening to your playlist. He said you have a gift and he absolutely loves your music. Music is one of his favorite things!
