EDNA - "Joe and I finally graduated from high school," Mary Ann Bitter said.

Bitter's five sons have walked the stage and received diplomas from Edna High School and now all eight of her daughters have done the same at the Hockaday School in Dallas.
But Joe and Mary Ann Bitter still have a way to go before they are finished with college for all 13 children.
This fall, their youngest, Joella, will attend the University of Notre Dame and their second youngest, Mary Ann, will be a senior at Elon University in North Carolina.
"It was a five-hour drive," Mary Ann said in a phone interview.
Their sister Mary Ann, a 2002 Hockaday graduate, returns to Elon this fall.She is a business major with a minor in marketing and Spanish.
"We had a son and then a daughter, all the way down the line until the last four girls," Mary Ann said.
Russell, 40, is a 1984 graduate of Davidson College."He is single, raises sheep and goats and lives in Harper," Mary Ann said.
Michael is 37.He attended Emory University for two years, then switched to Texas A&M where he earned a degree in economics and then a law degree from St. Mary's University in San Antonio.He and his wife, Liliana, have four children and live in San Antonio.
John, like his father, became a veterinarian.His father, Joe, practiced in Edna for 30 years before retiring in 1996.
John received a degree in equine science from Colorado State University and earned his veterinary degree from Texas A&M.He practices veterinary medicine in Argyle and lives in Flower Mound with his wife, Monicka, and their three sons.
Patrick, 31, is a 1996 graduate of Notre Dame.He is an investment banker with Merrill Lynch in San Antonio.He and his wife, Paige, are the parents of two.
Stephen is also a Notre Dame graduate and a commercial lending banker in San Antonio, where he makes his home.He is 26 and single.
For parents struggling to send one or two to college, the question might be "How'd they do that?"
Mary Ann admits that she really doesn't have an answer."We were organized, I guess."
Speaking of her daughters attending the private preparatory school, she said, "They all made good grades.They never had a car.It was very academically challenging, but very rewarding.The transition to being away from home was hard sometimes, but they were all very well prepared for college."
While most of her girls participated in sports, the boys did not.Mary Ann said the boys were involved in 4-H activities, but because of their chores, sports were pretty much out of the question.
Basically, chores revolved around raising cattle with their father.
Remembering the days of making three meals a day for 15 and all that went with raising 13 children, Mary Ann laughed and said she does not baby sit.
