The Principal up there.
…and the teacher selected by the students to speak up there (he was an economics teacher and gave such a great talk!
It was a beautiful program that I don’t have time to upload video of, but there are some videos of the music last year back HERE if you care to listen to the caliber of the stuff I’m talking about (last year with Max.)
Once again, it made me tear up and be grateful all over again. For this school, for music, for all the great friends who have surrounded Elle over all these years, and for this girl we get to call our own:
After the ceremony we went out take a bazillion pictures amidst the swarms of other families trying to capture the kids their kids have learned from and loved for so long.
I thought the crowds taking the pictures were as great as the crowds being photographed 🙂
New high school friends:
Growing-up forever friends:
Love these boys and the influences they’ve had on Elle.
All smart and kind and good…they are going to go places in life I tell you.
Graduation this time around was extra fun for me as a mom because I’ve known so many of Elle’s friends moms for so many years.
We’ve been through a lot together coping and worrying and celebrating and loving all these kids with all our hearts.
