Okay – I have to brag. Grad ceremony , dinner celebration and after grad was Tuesday evening. It was very tasteful and God honouring – what a blessing! He was front and center as He should be! However….my sweet shy and , well brilliant little girl really shone. Took home all the awards! There were only four and she took three of them because her marks were too high for the fourth – honour roll group. We were all a little surprised but proud of her! She is so sweet! Here are some pictures – not very good – the gym was dark and I was not very close. I guess I will have to pay the big bucks for the professional shots. Melina – had I known she would do so well I would have hired you to be there just to take photos of her! 🙂 I will be in touch soon!
This first picture is Allison receiving her award for high honour roll – there were five to receive this award.
This next picture is of her receiving the Citizenship award….there was quite the intro for this award with all the qualifications – one of them being good attendance…remember I am the mom who lets my daughter stay home from school to go shopping with me and out for coffee at the mall. I think Allison was about to cry here – all those nice things being said – but then obviously something cheered her up…the money part?
And then the big long intro of the student with the highest overall average for the graduating class…we were all pleasantly surprised. Here she is receiving her award from her very favorite teacher in the world Mrs Wiens!(Mom was not a favorite – way too strict!). Wow – it was some ceremony! Our last graduated of four …I still can’t believe it! Where did the time go? Gee I think I need to celebrate somehow!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for wholeness and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me. When you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you, declares the LORD, Jer 29:11-14
Thanks for letting me brag!
