The actual graduation ceremony was touching and unbelievably well planned and carried out. I can not believe that in 1 and 1/2 hours-- they marched in, we listened to 5 speeches, 647 students got their diplomas and fireworks lit the sky. We were actually back at our house by 8:50.
Our Open House Party was a lot of fun! Lots of family and friends eating and talking. The only small little tear up was during a video slide show we had made. But most of my tears had already come earlier--during the making of the video and on Senior Day at church. I can say that I really just enjoyed the moment of hanging out with lots of people that I love. After the last guests left around midnight--we crashed.
AND for the past three days we have played and rested. The tropical storm has kept us tucked up in our home, but the kids are handling it well-so far. Day 3 may test their limits. Hopefully not.
Here are some pics from Grad Nite and the next day. Hope you enjoy!
