Graduation Party

I know you are probably tired of hearing about my awesome graduates, but I wanted to share just a few pictures from their graduation party last Sunday.

We sent the invites out way back in April/early May, so we didn't know how many of our family and friends would support us. That made it difficult to calculate for food, so of course we made way to much just to be sure.

My sweetie set up the two canopy tents we bought ten years ago for Bossy's wedding reception and we pulled out all of our folding tables and chairs. I had some plastic tablecloth I bought at Sam's Club and the Dog Walker did all the decorating.

About two weeks ago I sent him to the dollar store with $10 to buy whatever he wanted to use for decorations. He came back with a couple of signs and a necklace for each graduate to wear in their school colors. He spent all the rest of the money on bubbles with little mortarboards on  top! I was smarter the second time. I sent Teach and she brought home some confetti and a few other things.

We had a fun party with food and friends and family. Some we hadn't seen for quite a while! Thanks for all those who supported us in person. We love you all. And thanks to my amazing internet friends for always being there for me.

Congratulations! My oldest son graduated from high school this year. It was such a struggle for him, I'm so proud! Such a great moment to see your children achieve that accomplishment.

Congrats to you all! I think graduation is such an important moment that you should all take a pat onthe back. Loved the pictures and the thoughts. I can see you enjoyed the moments.

You will be a professional party giver when the last of the 12 graduates. Nice job and it must be a bit of bitter sweet to have a child graduate. Pride mixed with caring about their future and the loss of a "child." Young adults they will be from here on out.
