The caps were made of construction paper, the stage was a dull carpet in a church basement, but this ceremony was sparkling with toothy grins and glowing faces. The kids had fun and we parents captured it all on camera.
Here are a few shots:
To protect the other children’s identities, I blurred out the faces in this shot. Ironically the only face blocked by a cap was Jackson’s! But I still loved how high Jackson tossed his cap – so I included the shot nonetheless.
To celebrate this evening we gave Jackson the choice of ANY celebration dinner – any restaurant, including going to the beach for fish and chips, whatever he wanted – and can you believe he chose SUBWAY!!!!! But he was adamant and I did promise that it was his night. So we picked up Subway and had a picnic in our yard! (Yesterday we were out shopping for his clothes and I gave Jackson the choice of a graduation present – he chose Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures!) LOL What can I say – Grad party five year old style. 🙂
I better enjoy it now — I am sure he will up the prizes for his high school grad…
