Well...that's done, what next?

Guess who has nothing scheduled for Monday:

My new college graduate.
Friday night was her Honors Program graduation ceremony.
Here she is with my mother:

I received a lot of compliments from people telling me, "Good job."
Each time I corrected them, and said, "This wasn't me - this was all her."
And it has been.
From kindergarten on up, DN1 has always been a very hard worker in school, organized, and focused.
Everything she has accomplished, she's busted her butt to achieve - and she has done a lot too!
In high school, she was valedictorian, she was involved in science programs, and she even went on a 2 week science expedition to Alaska her freshman year of high school.
Now she's working on being a DJ, doing radio commercials, working PR events, and she's even broadcast a radio show from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!
(With a double major in Communication and Biology, she intends to be the next Bill Nye the Science Guy.)
She is amazing.
My role is to be the cheerleader on the sidelines while she calls the plays (supportive, yes, but you should see my cartwheels!).
Now, one of the benefits of my job is I get a front-row seat at graduation, and that's why I was able to get so close for this picture.
She looks excited, doesn't she?

Her friend A is happy too.

What was even better benefit is when she came down off the stage and came right over to gave me a hug.
What a girl.
The world is her oyster.
