Im finally graduating! How do I show/tell my Husband & kids that I appreciate all theyve done? Here is my story. I am a 38 year old mom who has been going to college online for the past 2 ½ years. This has involved many hours of homework, time on the computer, whole weekends where I didnt leave my room & very late nights. My husband of 19 years and my 3 kids ages 16, 11 & 8 have unfortunately had to pick up the slack while I have been doing this. Daddy had to take care of evening baths, weekend entertainment, making dinner and laundry days. They have all been so cooperative and encouraging as I worked on getting my bachelors degree. I am graduating next month and they are having a party for me. My question is this How can I show them how much I appreciate all they have done for me? This is budget related because I was hoping you all would think of something that didnt cost too much. We are already taking a much needed vacation 2 weeks after I am done school. It will be a split vacation, Hershey with the whole family for 4 days then 4 days of just my husband and I in WDW. Does anyone have any crafty or inexpensive ideas to show appreciation to a family that has given up so much for their mommy/wife? I would like it to be something that I can maybe present to them at my graduation party.
