It's that time of year - graduations and proms galore! I'm showing off my last graduate at the banquet/prom. We had a wonderful evening to remember. He commented several times how glad he was that he went. Even my husband thought it was an impressive evening. And yes, for those of you who don't know anything about homeschooling, yes, most of the parents were there and yes, the soon-to-be-graduates enjoyed the company of their parents. Although, I have to
admit, my husband and I left around 10pm for some much needed rest while my son remained with his date until midnight. Indeed it was an evening to remember. The most touching part was when the seniors were presented on the staircase and
the dads escorted their daughters down the stairs. It was a real tear jerker - I got a little weepy and I don't even have any daughters! The room was filled with evening gowns and tuxedos. It was so elegant.
The Memphis-area Home Education Association really knows how to send folks off in style. I'm so glad we didn't miss it!
He's so grown up. I miss him already.
Below are some misc. pics from graduation as he leads the class in and then receives his diploma. Yes, that's us on the stage because we go across with him. The reason this is required (in this particular graduation) is because as a homeschool student, he didn't teach himself for 13 years - hence, the parents "graduate" too. There's a pic of the banquet/prom - a rather tight pic on the stairs, He's tall like my husband, so he's way at the top in the back.
