Honor couldn’t attend the ceremony due to limited seating, but it’s not like she’d have wanted to go anyway. She managed to pick up a nasty strep throat cootie over the weekend and has been laying on the couch for the last couple of days. Antibiotics are making her feel better, but she’s had a rough couple of days.
Before we took off for the school, I took a few photos of Brian. It was hot out. Right at 117F when we stepped out into the shining brightness. It’s amazing he could peel his eyes open.
Showing off his pearly whites (fresh dental cleaning yesterday – *SHINE!*)
Looking sharp in his new outfit (and hot… lots of degrees hot and swelter-y)
The graduating class enters the auditorium. Brian tries not to giggle at his mom stepping into the aisle to snap a photo.
Waiting his turn…
Finally, the moment that Brian’s been waiting for! Getting his certificates from the Principal and the CEO of the school.
We are rather proud of this kid!
Like his sister, Brian won an academic award. A Gold Certificate in the President’s Education Awards Program! Maintaining a high GPA, cumulative through all of Middle School!! All that hard work, chasing ‘A’s and ‘High Honor Rolls’ has paid off.
And this is it! He’s now a high school kid. Whoa!
