Graduation and Braggin' a Little About My Sister

This is my younger sister Ali. Ali just graduated from Dixie State College, and is moving on to USU for her Bachelors in Elementary Education. She is amazing. Beautiful, smart, talented and funny. And I love her.
Ali is coming here tomorrow to spend a week with us. When we go places together, I am sure people think she's my daughter. After all, I am 19 years older than her. I was actually attending Dixie when she was born. I am old enough to be her (young) mom.
If she were a rotten kid, people thinking she was mine might bother me.
But since she's pretty great, I'm totally OK with that.

I know what you mean. My little brother is graduating from high school in a few weeks. People think he's my kid, even though there's only 14 years between us. So, yeah, that's fun!

That's so wonderful that you keep a close relationship even with age differences! I'm hoping my 2 older girls will keep that with their 2 wee bro's.

Have a good week!
