The Graduate

Hi! No, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth...I'm in the "show me your papers" state! Woohoo! But this isn't about politics or Arizona or their racist, ridiculous's about my daughter's graduation.

We had to get her a new dress, because the girls were required to wear white underneath their white, kind of see-through gowns.

SEN10RS, Class of 2010!

Throwing their hats after the ceremony. Danni's class graduated 677 kids. It took an hour and a half to read all the names. Our last name starts with W. I think I still have "bleacher butt."

Proud sisters.

I don't normally post pictures of myself because yuck, but I have to point out that I am both smiling AND my eyes are open in this picture. Since this never, ever happens (like really, never), here's my grad with her dad and me.

Danni with her grandma and grandpa, Steve's parents.

Class of 2010 with the class of 2021. Or just a really cute little sister.

A whole new world awaits.

What beautiful girls, Shelley. And congratulations to your graduate.

Down here, they've banned the custom of throwing the hats because someone could get hurt. Really? Really?

And now the real fun begins as your daughter joins the fray. Am I right? Our girl is home from college and as much as we love having her, there is an upset in the balance of things. Good luck!

Congrats to the grad! My daughters class was not allowed to throw their hats in the air, and you werent allowed to clap until the end, or they kicked you out of the auditorium!

Congrats to you and to the new graduate! You all look so happy and proud. As you should be.

I know you'll be glad to have her home.
