Last Day of School & Graduation

Today is the last day of school. The last day of my daughter's baby years. ::SOB:: She's been going to this school since she started Kindergarten. Ok onto Graduation so I won't start crying again.

My sister in law picked up Jessica from school and took her to her house to do her hair. It was so pretty she did a great job. She straightened it for her since she has naturally curly hair so of course she wants it bone straight lol

Apparently the straps that I stayed up late sewing on the strapless dress "broke off". I'm thinking they had a little help but I'll forgive her. I took her to the school at 5 for the professional photos that they were doing.

Scott got home early and we were all ready to go before 6. So we took the long way to the school lol. We got there and got our seats. Then we waited forever for it to start lol. Trevor and I entertained ourselves for ahile.

After the program started they turned off the lights which made it really hard to get any decent pictures. Oh yah, and the prerequisite bald guy sat somewhere in front of us. I swear, every.freaking.thing. has a bald guy sitting in front of us. And his head is in EVERY picture. So I had to do some cropping.


Jessica and 2 other girls sang the National Anthem.

Then a few other things. Then Jessica and another girl read a poem that Jessica had wrote for an assignment and the teacher loved it.

And then a few more things.

Then she did a gift to the Principal and a little thing about him.

Then a few more things. And then since she's been on the honor roll from 5th to 7th grade, she not only got the gold ropes she's wearing, but she got a plaque! These pictures aren't so great, hoping my friend's pictures came out better.

AND she also go an award for music, another plaque (and she was the only one to get that!). So very proud mommy :O)

Afterwards we all went outside and took some pictures (are you tired of me yet?)

All the Grandparents!!

Our little family

My brother, sister in law and nephew

Trevor couldn't wait for the cake lol.

And aftewards we went to Applebees with my mom and step dad. Trevor made it through his mac and cheese and promptly passed out lol

Jessica was at the dance that was after Graduation. When I picked her up she said she slow danced with 2 guys :::giddy laughter::: So cute!!Pin It

Oh, you must be proud! and I cracked up about having to straighten her hair, of course she had to. Teens are never happy unitl they change something

Congratulations. What a proud mum you must be.

I'm thinking those straps had a little help too - snip, snip. Mmmmm, sounds dodgy to me.

Congratulations! This is as much your victory as hers. Love the pics and the commentary. I can't believe my oldest has been out of high school for 10 years (especially since the little two are still in elementary!)
Thanks for giving us this peek!
