I am no longer a mother of a high school student. I'm the mom of a high school graduate! The ceremony was scheduled to be held at the high school football stadium, but because of the rain (unusual for our part of town), it was held in the gym and the multipurpose room. It was a full house!
There were a limited number of tickets allowed to each student so my nieces stayed at our house and decorated it for our small grad party afterwards.
I usually dread high school graduations. I rather go to the grad party than to sit through a string of boring speeches, but I found myself enjoying the speeches from the students and faculty. They kept it funny, inspiring, and most importantly...short!
When I asked Moe what was one of the things that he liked most about his graduation. He instantly said, "I'm glad that all three of my Grandmas could make it to my graduation- it made my grad day even more special."
