6th Grade Graduation

June graduated from elementary school today.  She was so excited about it that she woke up before her alarm!  Yesterday, she invited a friend over and they painstakingly curled a million little strands of each other's hair so that it would look perfect for the ceremony today.  She made sure to sleep really carefully so that it would stay.  I'm not sure she even slept at all though.  :)

They kind of make a big deal out of 6th grade graduation here.  The gym was beautifully decorated.  There were speeches and flowers and awards.  It's a pretty cool thing to be a part of.  
 June got to sing in the choir (they all learned the sign language for the song, too!)
Mrs. Campman, the Principal, gave the commencement speech
 Besties...Megan, Turner, and June
 June and her awesome teacher, Mrs. Shea...LOVE her!
We're so proud of June and all that she's done this year to make the absolute best of her time in 6th grade!

As the Scout Master and I were sitting in that gym watching all those kids walk across the stage, it occurred to us that we won't have another graduation for 3 more years...and then we'll have TWO!  Mack graduates from elementary school in 2015...the same year that TCD graduates from HIGH SCHOOL!  ( is that possible that in just three years our children will start leaving their little nest??)  There are so many amazing things that will happen in the next three years.  I'm so grateful to be able to watch it up close.
