lucy’s high school graduation…
just like whoa
also she got awards and everything, my baby sister is so smart. smarter than all you losers. just kidding i love you guys.
and I just wish you could have been at this graduation because omg compared to ours this was a three hour party. except for the kissing i hate the kissing, just a totally cringe-fest. btw lucy had to get triple kissed twice
The speaker was Bill Curry, a former NFL coach and player and head coach of Georgia State University. Now to be honest, I’d never heard of him, I mean the name was familiar but the guy was a mystery and you could tell everyone else thought so too. But oh my god he was fantastic. He was funny and inspiring and went completely without notes for the majority of his speech. He gave anecdotes (which were basically the plot Remember the Titans) about his life and how there are people in life that will push you back and omg it was just great. He had the whole audience laughing at one point.
and then Lucy got the service award which nobody knew about so that was really cool. It was totally for Coexist, which was just like beyond amazing thing. I’m so proud of all the work you did for that. It was so funny cause the speech was one of those things where Reade and I were sort of like “wow this sort of kind of sounds like lucy” and then as they talked we were all like “omg wait” and then she got it and i was too busy screaming and clapping to take any pictures
then there was food, pictures, congratulations, and hugs. Ugh I miss all the kids so much. The school is meh, but the kids and the bonds are forever. Going back and seeing people and hearing people talk about it just made me incredibly nostalgic… sigh.
Anyway, Lucy I’m so proud of you college freshman. You’re going to do such great things and I’m sorry I sound like one of mom’s friends but I will really never be able to articulate how much I love, respect, and believe in you.
