8th Grade Graduation

Yesterday we celebrated the "graduation" of our youngest daughter from the 8th grade.
We arrived at the school at 8am thinking that we might be there for an hour or so.
2 and a half hours later, we were sneaking out to get back home to check on our sick kids!
We were very proud of our daughter and the 8 academic awards that she received...
but, My Goodness! there were so many off the wall, mediocre awards!
Like, 14 students receiving an award for "outstanding achievement"  in one class because it was too difficult for the teacher to choose just one student; so everyone with an "A" in the class received the award!

OK!  I'm going to get off my soapbox here and show you some wonderful pictures of our lovely daughter who makes us so proud!  

Hope you enjoy your day!  
I'm off to work on my neglected projects, financial responsibilities, housework, yard work, etc. so that I can relax and enjoy the Memorial Day Weekend!
With 2 sick kids, I doubt we will do anything spectacular...but I would love to hear about your plans!



  1. Awards were like that for my graduating 8th grader as well. He received what he called the "and everyone else" award. He want impressed.

  2. Congratulations for your beautiful daughter and for you two! :-)
