Introducing Hollywood: the Graduate! On Sunday, May, 27th, Hollywood graduated from high school.
Here are some pictures of her with the family. I LOVE this one of her and The Husband - what a great shot of them both:
And here she is with TH and me:
And the whole family:
And here she is with her grandparents:
I LOVE this one of her with my mom:
And here she is with my brother and his family:
The ceremony was at the high school, in the gym that was about a thousand degrees. But it was amazing. Here's Bumblebee sitting with her friend and two of her cousins at the ceremony:
At the beginning of the ceremony, the principal announced the names of the Valedictorians. Guess who was one of them? I am SO PROUD of this kid. (Yes, I'm bragging. It's a BLOG. If you can't brag on your blog, where can you brag?)
She was also selected by her classmates to give one of the three graduation speeches. It was a wonderful speech, and it made me cry. Between the chorus singing the song "For Good" and my mama crying next to me, I was a wreck. But a happy wreck, if that makes sense.
Here she is, getting her diploma:
So it's official. She's all done with high school. I can't really believe it.
I'll be writing more about the party. We had a great turn out and while it was a lot of work, it was a great success.
