“This post is a little delayed (mostly due to post graduation exhaustion lol) but I’m still beaming with pride,” the Kate Plus 8 star, 44, wrote via Instagram on Wednesday, May 29. “It’s hard to believe that Cara and Mady graduated from high school this past weekend … and are headed off to college in the fall! Where did the time go????”

The Dancing With the Stars alum added: “Their Graduation day was such a wonderful day of celebrating THEM and all of their amazing accomplishments! These girls are going places and I can’t wait to see where they end up! Cara and Mady, I love you so very much and I’m just so so proud of YOU! #ProudMom.”

In February, the I Just Want You to Know author said that she never had to hover while raising Mady and Cara. “I don’t have to keep after them,” Kate said at the time. “They’re self-driven. They have goals and dreams, and they’re just good kids. … With them turning 18 and going off to college soon, I don’t have to worry.”

She went on to defend some of her protective parenting methods, saying, “It comes from a place of love. I do think that I care so deeply that I have been, at times, overzealous.”
