when our oldest graduated from college in 2008, she had her brother, sister, parents, both sets of grandparents, and a great grandma there, plus her boyfriend and his parents, and an aunt and uncle.
When our son graduated, he had his parents, and his maternal grandma.
I did make KJ & Kate attend Koren's graduation. I didn't make the girls attend KJ's. It was important for me to be there. I don't get to go to college, but my kids do. and that's my victory. I am proud of all my kids. I will be there, come hell or high water. The good Lord willin' and the creek don't rise.
