Child No. 2 Raised To Adulthood

Well, we've officially raised two girls to adulthood, and all without any major obstacles.  Allyson reached the age of legality yesterday.  I'm proud of how far she's come and how hope she can take some of what we've taught her (the good things, of course) and make the most of her life.

Allyson will be graduating high school this year and has enrolled for a local university.  She works part-time in a clothing store at the mall.  She's short, she's sassy, and she's full of spirit.  Welcome to the adult world, Allyson!

wow, it really does go fast. I have a 24 and a 22 year old from my 1st marriage and the youngest is 12 going on 25 from my 2nd marriage.
Looks like your daughter is a responsible person, a job and college, you must be very proud of her
