  1. Congratulations! A bit far for me to attend and a bit odd since we don't know each other but I do send my warmest wishes. Hey what do Gil and Kelly Jo do for the kids graduation? A special dinner and talk? Maybe a Bible as a gift? My husband bought me a bible as a gift. I can only imagine it will be special no matter what!

  2. I think it is so cool and sweet of them for opening it up to public! Carlin seems to be the social butterfly type... and I can relate to that! :)

    1. Would you leave them alone please. Some kids in their family go to college some dont. Why does everyone feel the need to ask graduates what their plans are? 18 year Olds don't have their future all figured out. I ended up having panic attacks from the constant "What are you doing for the rest of your life? You better know now." questions.
