Graduation Day!

I wanted to update you right after we got home, but I have to admit to being somewhat exhausted. I went upstairs and climbed in my bed and fell asleep until it was time to get ready to go to Sport's baseball game. But let me back up a bit...

Princess graduated from Bingham High School today. She was so beautiful and so calm and totally ready to graduate. After all, she did graduate from SLCC last month, so this was the second time through one of these for her and I couldn't help comparing the two.

Bingham was calm and stoic. They refused to let people bring in airhorns or even clap during some parts. SLCC graduation felt like a party pretty much the entire time, from the opening procession until everyone stormed the floor to hug their graduates.

Bingham forced the kids to all leave via a stairway directly to the tables to give up their gowns. There were not supposed to be any pics taken after the ceremony because they had another group coming in at 1:00 and we had barely finished right before noon.

Not that it was really negative, it was still so fun to see her cross the stage with her classmates. When I think back over the years and all the adventures and hopes and dreams and heartaches, it has been a tremendous journey.

I'm so proud of you, Princess! High school has been a beautiful ride, now it's time to find out what the future holds for you. I'm sure it will be amazing.

I love you.

Congratulations to your daughter, what she does now to get her BS degree(s) will be quick I think..Did she get any scholarships for her soon to be BS???? Hoping and praying she did..what wonderful children you have all so talented and they received their high school diploma the same time they get their AA degrees on your running start programs! Our only got hers the second year it was offered in our town, she graduated top of her class in high school and junior college then on to get her bs degree(s) with many majors and minors she adored the university she graduated from..Time flies very very fast, enjoy the remainder of your family who will graduate and go on to their lifetime choices and God's continued blessings.!!!!!!!!!!!!

I meant to say it is because of you Sandy and your wonderful husband that your children all make wonderful educational and spiritual choices..I pray that many read your blog and gain the wisdom that being a Mother and a real Father is the path to the Lord, your faith and how you guide your family is the real manner of being a parent and a wife and dad and father! It truly is..God's blessings always to a cherished family of the Lord and LDS faith you are a shining example of how to live a godly and righteous life and no I am not of your faith but I do admire it indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
