Whose Daughter is She Anyway?

The other night Sam and I went to a Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society induction for our oldest child, Alexandria (18). 2 years ago she finished up her high school homeschooling two years early so she has been going to community college for the past 2 years. In the fall she will go to a four year school. She just finished up her finals this past week and is leaving the community college with a 3.88 gpa which qualified her for the honor society.

Neither Sam nor I were particularly fond of school. I did just enough in college to keep my gpa above 2.0 so they wouldn’t give me the boot. As far as I know Alex has gone to pretty much every class. I doubt if I went to 50% of classes. They interfered with my fun. At my school happy-hour started Thursday after lunch and went through Monday night. With any luck you sobered-up by Tuesday morning for classes.

Sam was a good student who went to her classes and got good grades but found it to be a struggle at times and didn’t really care for school all that much.
So to our daughter Alex, if you really are ours (she is the only to be born in the hospital so I guess there could have been a mix up), congratulations. Your mom and dad are proud of you!

A few pics from the evening. Alex is the shorter of the two girls. The other girl and guy are two of her BFF's

Ok, take the picture already

Flowers for me? You shouldn't have.

Alex is really digging my $8 shirt and tie set

Hot momma, Alex and friend

Hey! without mentioning it was your wife, I would have thought she was a classmate! Sam, what's the secret?
Congratulation to Alexandria and her friends.

Congratulations to your daughter and her mom. I'm sure she owes her brilliance to her first teacher. She gets her good looks from her momma too. You're right, she is pretty hot!

Sounds like a parents dream to bring up a child who is so self-motivated and excels!

Congrats to your daughter and to the parents who did a wonderful job with the rearing!
