Not from high school, of course, but from middle school! She graduated with high honors, and we are so proud of her!
On her last day, I greeted her with graduation streamers on the front door—she was so excited!
I adore the dress, shoes, shoes, and hairstyle she chose for the big event:
She was chosen to be a name reader, which was fun—though she had some tough names!
And because she was the first name reader, it worked out that she was the very last kid to receive her diploma!
The excited grads!
And then it was time for photos:
A selection of friends; some she has been in school with since kindergarten!
And a couple of her favorite teachers:
And some dear friends who came to cheer on the graduates:
And then back home to “dress down” a bit for their 8th Grade dance—not a fancy occasion, but FUN! The theme this year was Hollywood, and the kids had a blast!
Her time at middle school was absolutely wonderful, and we will miss it. But we can’t wait to see what high school has in store for her!
