Since there is a dress code, she wore a shrug during the ceremony, but it came off for the dance.
We are very proud of her academic achievements, as she was on Honor Roll during both years of middle school. She received the President's Excellence in Education Award for her academic achievements, "signed" by President Obama. (I am certain the first copy was, and then his secretary copied the several thousand being sent to all the students earning it across the country.)
After the ceremony was a mad house. Everyone poured out into the lobby and there was a sea of parents looking for their grad. We had tried to persuade our eldest to join us, but since crowds make him extremely anxious, he declined. After the insanity of the after ceremony lobby, we were just as happy he was not there. Here are a few after shots - before the girls headed off to the dance - at which they had a great time. this class is actually very close, which is wonderful, since they will be together for the next 4 years. The class of 2015 - gulp!
