A Graduate and His Brother
We are the parents of a high school graduate.
Last nights ceremony was held under an almost full moon and a gentle breeze. Our cheering section included both sets of grandparents and my brother and his wife along with husband and myself. S2 was in the band playing Pomp and Circumstance too many times to count.
The teachers filed in first and made two lines through which the students passed. Some of the teachers had water devices to get students wet :-). The speeches were funny and thoughtful. And a few beachballs were thrown around which kept the one vice principal busy. S1 ended up getting the faculty awards for German and Photography. At the end more beachballs were thrown along with glitter type confetti and the band played School's Out For Summer.
