The photo album pick for this week is graduation themed! Shocker right?? Haha. Let me say now, sorry for the over abundance of graduation mention lately, I'm just so darn excited for Sunday! Before I get into how great it felt to finish my last exam yesterday and how surreal it was to walk out of the building as a student for one last time…oh wait…did I just? :p Anyways, let's get to the photos!
This is my mom, grandma, and I after my Kindergarten graduation in 1998. Although I do not have too many vivid memories, there are a couple that I certainly recall. First, when Kindergarten graduation comes to mind I think about my classmate and friend passing out. I wasn't sure what happened at the time, yet I remember him falling and my dad (who is a paramedic) rushing up to grab him. Also I remember that after the ceremony our class put on a graduation song for our families. I couldn't tell you what it was that we sang, but I can tell you that I remember exactly that moment, smiling and singing my heart out. Lastly, that cap! It is made from a styrofoam bowl and cardboard. I still have it to this day. Man, was that much more cost-efficient then the one I'll be wearing Sunday or what?!
Now, fast forwarding my high school graduation. I graduated high school in June of 2010. This picture was taken in the school "commons" area. The common area is where we hung out before and after school as well where we had lunch. Pictured are three of my homeroom buddies and myself waiting for the ceremony to start. My school did homerooms by last names and we kept the same one for all four years so, it's easy to say that they all were a huge part of my high school days!:)
The picture above is also from my high school graduation. It is of me after the ceremony. My school colors were orange and blue which meant an orange dress was a must under my blue gown. Also, you may notice a little extra glam in the picture! A close friend of the family brought me the cute little combo. I couldn't help but rock it right away. I only wore the glasses for the picture, but totally walked out with pride in my sash and tiara! Oh and the ring…can't forget the ring. It lit up!
I can't wait to make more memories and seal another chapter of my life this weekend! <3
What are your favorite memories of different graduations throughout the years?
Any suggestions of special things I should make sure to do on Sunday?
