Graduation






Morgan graduated high school this past Friday evening.

As you can see from the picture above (the text chosen by the grads for this event) this is not my best work, photographically speaking.

Let’s just take that as a given, or I’ll spend the whole post apologizing rather than telling the story!

I wanted to start the story with a picture of Morgan coming into the church, but he walked so fast that I didn’t get there in time!

This is a picture of four grad girls who, as a surprise to the rest of the class, sang a beautiful song composed and written by Lisa, the young woman who is third from the left. They managed to keep it secret for an entire year!

I had managed to take a short video with my camera but, I don’t quite know how I would download it and link it to my blog.

Chandra? Any ideas?

I wanted to take a picture of Morgan accepting his diploma and all I got was his blurry back!



Presenting the graduating class of 2008.

Morgan and Cam in the receiving line.

Do you thing Morgan’s happy it’s over?!

Morgan with his friend and escort Chantal.

* Note her lack of shoes. The picture I took when they actually came down the stairs was so dark you couldn’t see a thing!

Of course Brad had to get a picture too!

The kids had rather interesting centerpieces on the table.

Each of the grads did shadow cutouts of themselves. This is the pose Morgan chose. Brad’s was a large black piece of paper with a stick man on it! . . .

Oh Brad!

The gym. (and Jesse.)

This is my sister Lisa who came and stayed with me last week. I hadn’t seen her since November.

As my sisters and I live so far apart, it doesn’t often happen that we are able to attend these types of things together, so when we can, it’s very special. Sorry you missed it Tam. Hope this post helps.

But not to worry, I’ll be at your daughters wedding this fall without fail!


Holly’s 20 and as you can see does not like having her picture taken! The girl beside her has been her best friend since kindergarten, although they haven’t seen each other much since Kristen moved away.

Kristen came home for her brother Brad’s graduation!



But she consented to taking a family picture when I used a bit of mother’s guilt by reminding her that soon they would all be out of the house, and then what would I have to remember them by?

It was a lovely evening.
