When I was loading the pictures from our trip onto my computer, I realized that I missed posting about something very important-- Ginger's 6th grade graduation. Oops. I also have a photo of Bud with his adored (and adoring) teacher. Better get on that before I post about the reunion, I guess.
Ginger wasn't super excited for me to take her picture, but if the school is going to make the effort to put on a graduation (that I then have to sit through), you can bet I'm going to take pictures.
First the kids performed a few lovely songs. Gotta love the parent who stood up in front of me as I took the shot...
When it was time to receive her diploma, Ginger raced by as quickly as she could. I still managed to get a few slightly blurry, but usable photos, however. Nice try, Ginger.
And here's a photo of the famed "Graduation Cat" that I already posted about:
With her Auntie Opera and the "cat":
I love Big's photo bomb.
With her teacher:
And me and Edith..
Congratulations, Ginger! I can hardly believe Ginger will be in Middle School in just a little over a month, but I know she'll do great and love it.
I'll close the post with a picture of Bud with his beloved 2nd grade teacher. The adoration was mutual, believe me. She would always whisper to me, "Bud is my favorite. I love him so much." It was so nice for Bud to have a teacher who appreciated who he really is. She told me that she had never met such a self-motivated, driven 2nd grader. And she was impressed by how well he got along with everyone. She thinks Bud will go far in life and I think so, too.
What a great school year for everyone! I can't wait to see what next year brings.
