UPDATE: The winner is…BN!
This week is all about my girl, LaLa. She graduates from high school this weekend! Yay! In the leadup, there are sooooo many activities. There was a banquest last night where she got an award for being a honor’s student for three years. There’s the Senior Signing where you do a symbolic signing with the college you’re headed to. LaLa’s headed to my local alma mater. There’s the Senior Walk-out where the seniors, en masse, walk out of school days before everyone else gets to call it quits for the year. I hope they play “We’re not going to take it” as they do.
Then there’s family coming in on Friday, so a dinner that night. Graduation Saturday morning, then dinner again, that night.
All to celebrate getting our girl across the finish line. And we get to do this two more times…
It’s been fun to watch. I have no idea what the customs were when my peers graduated way back when because I dropped out to go to college. I don’t feel like I missed out on anything, because dropping out got me to Europe faster. That was my big goal—The Grand Tour—which the Army paid for by sending me there for my first assignment.
Anyways, we’re up to our eyeballs with spring cleaning, cleaning cars, rushing around to buy things. They are anyway. I’m up to my eyeballs with THREE sets of edits to complete this week, plus my own book to finish by Friday. I’m just a wee bit stressed.
So, I’ll leave you with one more photo of my girl…
And a question. For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, tell me something about yours or some significant person’s graduation!
