Well, it’s been quite a week! On Wednesday, Kirstie graduated from high school! On Thursday, Kenny graduated from elementary school! This mom has had a lot of excitement, happy tears, pride overflowing…..yeah!
I don’t have Kirstie’s graduation pics yet – I took them on her camera so she needs to give me copies. Suffice it to say, it was a fun experience. It was HOT, so we were basking in the sun. In fact, I ended up with a glorious Farmer’s tan….yep…..too much sexy. One exciting thing was that Ramiele Maluby (you know, from season 7 of American Idol) was at the graduation, apparently she is a relative of someone who was graduating. She first walked by and Kristin (a long time friend of Kirstie’s and like a daughter to me) was like, “That’s Ramiele!” I was like, “are you serious?”. It certainly was! Kenny braved the crowds and took the video camera up close….maybe I will be able to upload it, we shall see!
Special shout out to Edgar, who got there very early and got primo seats for us! And Grandma Ellie was SO EXCITED to see Kirstie graduate. We had a wonderful celebration afterward at Edgar’s house, where Grandma Anita made scrumptious food for all. Woohoo! So, I will post pics soon….
Thursday, Kenny graduated from 6th grade. He was adorable, wearing a suit and trying to be ultra cool. Here he is before the ceremony began (and yes, I realized the tag was still on his sleeve and removed it):
Of course, we got there well before the ceremony started – again, Edgar was intent on getting great seats, which we did. As we waited the approximate hour before it started (yes, we arrived at 7:30 am!), I heard Kirstie and Kristin complain that they were tired. Can you imagine? Here they are:
Here is Kenny as the ceremony began and getting his promotion certificate:
After the ceremony, we went to Lucille’s and Kenny had his favorite food – RIBS!!! Here he is enjoying them to the fullest:
Yep, it was a pretty eventful week! This mama is VERY proud of ALL my kids! In fact, here is Josh the morning of Kenny’s graduation. He was excited because, as it was the last day of school, his class was having movie day (which explains why he is holding a pillow!) and a pic he took with Kristin at Kirstie’s celebration (he jacked my phone):
Okay, well, I am going to have some more coffee and get some errands done today! Woohoo!
