Today was our second high-school graduation ceremony. Kyra pulled it off!
The weather was a little chilly when we arrived but once the clouds cleared, it warmed up quickly to become quite beautiful. Here’s the crowd, with Mr. Aragon delivering an introductory speech while holding a wizard’s staff:
Kyra chose Ms. Texera, her band teacher, to hand her the diploma. They struck a pose for the camera:
This year’s graduating class was smaller than Alex’s class so the ceremony went a little more quickly. That’s always nice, since almost everyone there only cares about one of the graduates. At the end, the mortarboards flew.
Here’s the happy graduate. She’s wearing white for her 4.0+ GPA, red-and-gold honor cords, and a band award. She was supposed to get another cord for her college-level courses, but some wires got crossed and we’ll need to sort that out.
Her friends Hannah and Alex, who she’s known for something like 15 years, came to support her… as did Alex’s parents!
Grandma and grandpa also made the trip, squeezing it into their busy summer travel schedule:
I’m so proud of my beautiful girl.
