The graduation ceremony was held this morning at 11 am at our Arts Centre and then we headed back to the school for some photos and a BBQ.
This is the old part of the school that is perfect for photos. This building is amazing inside and out with original woodwork including classroom doors and high wooden baseboards all around. Of course the students weren't too fussy about climbing 5 flights of stairs to go to their classes. The newer part of the school is nice too but I'm partial to old buildings like this.
Shelby, me and hubby/stepfather Nathan.
Miss Pearl practicing for her turn. She was such a good girl through the long ceremony and afterwards. She hugged Auntie "Bebe" and said "Congratulations, I'm so proud of you"....too friggin cute!
My brother Vic, Me, Shelby, Miss Pearl and Hubby. My parents were at the ceremony but didn't come back to the school as my Mom wasn't feeling good.
Shelby and her girlfriend Melissa.
It was a wonderful day! I'm so very proud of her and excited for her to begin the next stage of her life but on the other hand I'm sad to see this part over. My baby is growing up!
They have a dinner and dance tonight and then a camping party to attend after the dance. There will be a lot of tired teenagers (and some very tired adults that are chaperoning the party) tomorrow judging by the amount of tents that were at their friend Jeff's place.
