Some Grad Pics

Hello! Well what a day yesterday! We got everything all set up at the park and it was just gorgeous. Grad was set for 5pm. 3pm, doesn't a wind storm blow through and took out the arbour and the first row of chairs and all the caterers table clothes, utensils..everything! The wind was just howling off the lake! So, after a much thought out debate, the principle thought it would be best for everyone's safety to take it to the school. I couldn't believe how quickly our parents pulled together and got us moved up to the school. We were reset within half an hour. It was amazing. The principle figured we would need time, so she asked everyone to come back for a 6pm start. Can you believe, they were ready at 5:15???? A HUGE thank you to everyone for all their help! The grad ceremony was still beautiful and went off without a hitch. And yes, you guessed the time we got to the school, the sun was shining down. Go figure!

Here's a few pics for you to enjoy...isn't our boy handsome?? And his date looked stunning!!! My sister took the one with the umbrella and I love it! Thanks, Lee Ann! There is one of all of us together (family) but it's on someone elses camera. Unfortunately, I didn't get any of Andrew and his dad or my brother. He hates getting his pic taken to begin with, so half the time he was trying to run the other way! The one of me with the 2 boys is Andrew's best friend and our "adopted" (hehehehe) son, Thomas.

Congrats guys! And to Andrew...congratulations son, we're so very proud of you and we love you very much. You've excelled this year and really started to come out of your shell. Keep up the good work and remember to always follow your dreams. Always reach high, we know you can do it. Good luck in grade 9!!!
