Bellamy & Tallulah's Graduation•
Posted on June 22 2017
The girls' graduation weekend turned into quite the party.
We woke up the next day, once again to celebrate Tallulah. She held her promise to Robert and me that she would graduate from high school before getting her tattoo. So all 18 of us cheered her on while she received her first, and I hope, last tattoo. The tattoo parlor didn't know what to expect when all of us greeted them at the door before they had even opened. My sister, Brandi, was slicing banana bread and serving coffee. Robert's lifelong friend, Jim, was offering $500 cash to any of us who would be willing to get a Redskins tattoo. So as you can tell, we were pretty loud and obnoxious. But thank God the woman who was about to tattoo our daughter asked us to not "hoot and holler" too loud so she could have a steady hand. Tallulah chose the word "seven" to honor her seven siblings. What a memory she'll treasure forever, as the tattoo is also written in her grandfather's handwritting.
Finally, it was Bellamy's graduation day. Her senior class was much larger than Tallulah's and a bit more formal. She had way over 120 students graduate. However, we did yell and scream when her name was announced, which is anything but formal. I'd like to think if there was a prize given to who could scream the loudest, we would have won.
To my girls - I love you Bellamy and Tallulah. Keep dreaming big.
P.S. I promise not to rent your bedroom out, or give it to your brothers even though they're trying to claim first dibs.
