UPDATE: The winner is…ButtonsMom!
This week is all about LaLa! Our graduate has so much going on that the entire family is involved. Today, there’s an award ceremony and a “signing” ceremony where she declares her college of choice. We’re all looking forward to Saturday’s commencement. So, I thought I’d devote today’s puzzle fun to her.

My graduation day was 22 years ago! I was late to the ceremony, and in tears because I got dumped that morning! But life goes on, and I know it all worked out for the better!
Congratulations to your granddaughter…Best Wishes gif a happy & successful future for her.
Both of my girls high school graduations were special days in my life. When my youngest graduated college in Rhode Island, the family traveled up there for the weekend. We did some sightseeing one day. Went to a special dinner after everyone had finally arrived the night before graduation. After commencement we loaded up whatever was left in her room & all headed back home. My oldest daughter did her college on line & going nights while she worked at her job. When she finished her associate degree we had a big party for her….she worked hard & it took some time, but she did it on her own.
Major Congrats to your LaLa!
My nephew graduated a couple of years ago… Nephew #2 will graduate in 3 more years.
For me, I was enrolled in early college acceptance, I had just finished my first year of college and came back for my high school ceremony… it felt really weird being back… almost like I did not belong.
I graduated May 1972–51 years ago on the 12th. I was in the 3rd class to graduate on the Aquatorium–a huge concrete stage built out over the Monongahela River. It was incredibly hot that night despite sitting on the river. Girls outnumbered guys in the class, so the back rows were filled with us lone females. We spent the time swatting at bugs with our programs. As it cooled near sunset, we were finally comfortable, but the teachers in the row behind us were quite cold by then. There is an aerial pic of the stage on my FB home page–if you should want to see what it looks like.
Congratulations to your LaLa! I graduated in 1978. Our gratuation was held in the auditorium. It was over 90’s outside. No airconditioning. Only 2 guests per student because we had around 250 students. I remember my family fighting for days on who in the family should go. Then it went to nobody wanted to go sit in a hot auditorium in this heat.
Finishing high school where I grew up was a quiet business. No graduation, we just ended the year 6 weeks earlier. Low key works for me.
was held outside
This June will make 50 years since I graduated from high school. I remember thinking that I would never finish school and now all these years later I wonder where all the time has gone. I still remember the dress I wore (my mother made it) and I remember the special restaurant my parents took our family to for dinner after the ceremony.
Congrats! I remember how happy my daughters were when they graduated.
Congratulations! I remember graduation going way too fast and way too slow at the same time.
My daughter just graduated from the same college that I graduated from in 1996. It was amazing to be there and see her be the second generation ❤️.
Happy congratulations to your granddaughter and your family, Delilah! Our youngest is graduating next week, and we’re thankful the ceremony will be indoors, LOL! His older siblings’ ceremonies were outside, and the heat was definitely a factor! I’m sure LaLa will be off to great things!
Thank you everyone for your well wishes!
