Graduation recap...

(or should I say Graduations!) 
Yes, I had 2 graduations in less than a week..
My son graduated from High School, and my daughter from Middle school.

Graduation Day.. (High School)

We got up early and started decorating..  we didn't have a lot of time because graduation was
early morning.

I wish I had more photo's to share of the decorations.. but we were in a hurry and I didn't get to them.

We finally got the decorating done, and we got ready to go.

Graduation went wonderfully, and our son received a scholarship we didn't know anything about, so that was amazing.  I got some wonderful photo's of the big day, which I am so thankful for.

When he walked across the stage and received his diploma.. Wow, that was quite a moment.  My 'little' boy (who actually towers above me) all grown up..  my eyes started watering of course, even though I was trying my best not to cry.. :0)  However, after all the graduates had been called and received their diploma's, and the class officially introduced... Well, it hit me a little harder when they started playing their class song, and the class tossed their hats into the air.     I guess I really just wanted it to last a little longer..   :0)  

I actually listen to the song that they chose fairly often, (it is one my families favorite singers, and we listen to the cd often on the go..) and now I have a fond memory of my son and his class every time I hear it.. I know the exact moment during the song, and I see this.

After Graduation, we took several photo's before leaving.. and we had a cookout/grad party with our families..
The wind caused some decorations to blow away.. :0) but oh well.. It was fun just the same.

It was a wonderful day, that we will treasure always!


My daughters graduation also went very well.

She was absolutely beautiful in her dress that she picked out,
and I have to share her fancy hairstyle she had me do for her..
I made a bow using her hair.. isn't it adorable!

She received the 'Most Artistic' award, among others.. and believe me - she is! :0)

What a whirlwind of a week we have had.. :0)
Emotional ups and downs, lack of sleep, tons of projects and activities, the most amazing memories made, and a end of the school year..

I am truly blessed to have the honor of being my kid's mom.. they are both so amazing and
I couldn't be more proud!
