A little late, but what the heck....
So our youngest graduated from high school this month. It was crazy trying to get to the end of the semester and get everything done in time for our out of town visitors- my mom (Nana) and Mrs. Doohickie's parents (Grandma and Grandpa).
When the big day came, my son was ready to go. Here he is with Nana in the background as we were leaving.
Considering the class of '09 was 500 strong, they were pretty efficient with keeping things moving along.
Once everyone was seated, they sang the national anthem.
The anthem was sung by the senior choir members including our son. He's the tall guy in the back row.
After the speeches they started the production line to recognize the graduates. They didn't actually get their diplomas at graduation; this whole thing was just for show.
Mrs. Doohickie was impressed with the metal our son got...
...until she read it. I think it said, "The wisest man in all of Oz" ;- )
Time for the family portraits: Me, the graduate, Mrs. Doohickie and my older son
The graduate with Grandpa and Grandma
And a picture with Nana
One chapter closes and another begins. This past week, he went to freshman orientation at Texas Wesleyan University where he'll be going in the fall.
