Her great dad ran alongside her all the way amidst that gaggle of cute girls because she’s still not ready to do it completely solo, but she was pretty excited about that.
Claire’s friend’s Mom has a tradition of doing a little breakfast for all their friends for the last few years (so nice). This is the picture she sent me of all the kids who came.
Whoa. Thank you Suzanne for hosting all those kids!!
Grace hosted some girls over here for their own fancy breakfast before their “Golden Scholar” ceremony.
She assigned everyone something to bring and they made a little feast (with the help of my great Mom who was in town for all the hoopla).
Love these great girls.
Then we dropped them all off at school for the last big day…
So fun to have my Mom there for all this fun last-day stuff.
Then we headed to Grace’s “Golden Scholar” ceremony.
That’s for all the kids with exemplary grades.
So proud of this girl for working so hard.
(and the other kids too…Claire’s is back here…and we somehow missed the memo on Max and Elle’s because they didn’t let us know until the ceremony was over. China messed up a few things like that…)
This is the only picture I got of Elle on the last day…telling me she really didn’t need a picture, way too mature for that 🙂
…except for the difficulty of having two babies at the same time that I have long since forgiven and forgotten because it has become so darn fun.
Usually we have big groups of kids here after school on the last day but this year everyone scattered to all kinds of different parties and I worked my heart out on a slide show of all the seniors that sent them in for the big party I was helping with that night after graduation (a breakfast from 12:30-3:30 am). More on that later.
Then we headed over to save seats for the big graduation.
To be continued….
