Three Graduations

The last week of May we had three of our boys graduate.

Hubba graduated from kindergarten and entertained us with some cute, silly songs about j-e-l-l-o and moving up to 1st grade. He was so happy to have "the right color of hat" but sad to be leaving his class that he loves so much.

All-a-boy graduated from the 6th grade and was chosen to receive the Hope of America award (along with 3 others from his graduating class). The whole 6th grade got to spend an overcast day at the local water park in celebration of this accomplishment. I think his favorite part of graduation was the refreshments at the end.

Coolister graduated from high school with honors. Each graduate handed the principal a jellybean when they went up to receive their diploma in the hopes of filling his pockets. When they were officially graduated the seniors all threw a rainbow of colored bouncy balls instead of their hats - it was quite a sight! That night he had fun with his friends at the senior all-night party which was held at a local restaurant until 4:00 in the morning.

Nice job, boys. Keep making us proud.

Man, I wish I could have gone to Coolister's graduation - as well as 'Atta-Boy's' and Hubba's. Unfortunately, they were all during the times I was teaching.


You must be proud of these three guys.
