GOOD Morning America’s Lara Spencer shared sweet photos to celebrate her daughter Kate’s final days of high school.
The newscaster picked it up Instagram to post highlights of the last few weeks.
In one post, Lara, 53, shared a slideshow of pictures of Kate’s lacrosse team, noting that it was their last game together.
The first snap showed the eight teammates in their green Gators uniforms huddled together, some holding a single red rose.
Additional photos showed Kate posing with individual players, as well as one from the entire team holding cardboard cutouts of themselves as babies.
Another appeared to have been taken on the sidelines of a game, showing Lara’s only daughter in action on the field.
And one last photo showed Lara smiling next to the other mothers while sitting on a bench in front of the school.
The GMA star captioned the post: “Slide right to see some footage from the last high school lacrosse game of these 8 older girls, most of whom have played together since they were five. Big win against Hotchkiss to cap off a great season.” .
“I will miss these parents and children so much. Thank you to the coaches who taught these girls lacrosse and life skills they will never forget. I’m so proud of you #7.”

To officially close the chapter, Lara made sure to take photos of Kate’s graduation day.
On Thursday she went back to the platform post a snapshot of her and her mother posing with Kate outside their Connecticut home.
