Proud mom moment! Reese Witherspoon threw a graduation party for daughter Ava and son Deacon at her L.A. home on Sunday, June 10. Ava, 18, just completed high school, while her 14-year-old brother will be a freshman in the fall.

The Big Little Lies actress, who shares Ava and Deacon with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe, shared photos from the celebration on Instagram Story. In a sweet boomerang, the siblings— clad in black gowns and mortarboards — throw their caps into the air. Behind them is a sign that reads “You did it!”

To honor her Southern roots, the Nashville native 42, served drinks from pitchers from her Draper James line adorned with the words, ‘Cheers ya’ll.”

Ava took to Instagram on June 8 with a throwback photo from her first day of high school. In the yearbook-style picture, the natural blonde has bright pink hair. “I graduated high school!” wrote Ava. “(here’s why I looked like at the beginning of it).”

Witherspoon and her husband, Jim Toth, are also parents of 5-year-old son Tennessee. The Legally Blonde 3 star has admitted juggling three kids and a career isn’t easy. “No one’s really doing it perfectly. I think you love your kids with your whole heart and you do the best you possibly can,” the Oscar winner told Southern Living in 2016. “There are some sacrifices you make, and it hurts your heart sometimes. But my kids tell me they’re proud of what I’ve accomplished and that just means everything. I grew up with a working mom, and I have so much respect for the things she did as a nurse and a teacher. I would never begrudge her that.”
