Hallie has been fortunate to go to attend high school with cousins. Three cousins went to her school and one cousin (unfortunately) attended a rival school.

She’s shared classes with them. She’s played sports with them. She’s cheered with them in the student section and cheered for them on the court. She’s danced with them at dances. (Yes, even the cousin who attended a different school came to several dances at our high school!) She has loved sharing high school with them.

But Hallie is on the younger end of these cousins and three of them graduated high school this year and she is going to miss them terribly.

And as we sat with family and watched a video of these three graduating cousins growing up together I’m convinced life is more fun with cousins. Hallie has been so fortunate to have this time with them. But it’s the end of an era.
