Happy Graduation - sharing my family with the AR Family

By
Home Stager with Sensational Home Staging

I can't help sharing the graduation of our daughter, Lauren, from 8th grade.  She received the President's Academic Award of Excellence (based on GPA and SAT Scores) and also received a plaque for being on the honor roll all 4 quarters.  There was a Jr. High banquet - and I helped "Stage" the centerpieces - and the kids were all dressed up, and then the following evening was the actual ceremony with their graduation gowns.  This was the highlight of my week last week - my husband and I are so proud! 

I recall my own 8th grade graduation - I do remember wearing a long sundress and had my hair up in a braided side-do for our outdoor ceremony, but we did not have a big banquet or awards, and did not wear a gown - not until high school. Seems that the formal process for high school and college graduations has trickled down to 8th graders now.

Next year - we'll have a 9th grader, 7th grader, 5th and 4th graders and for now are just enjoying the summer!

Jennie, Thanks for linking this post...your family is beautiful and you should be so proud!  I love sharing stories about my kids!!!!  =)  That's what being a mom is all about, right? 

ugghh, my son is going into 8th grade this year.  This past year has been such a turning point for me...morphing from kids into young adults...you can practically see the changes with each passing day.

Beautiful and smart, that's a great combo!  You have every right to be proud.  They're all growing up so fast!  It's scary!

Jennie- Your daughter is so pretty and looks JUST like her mom! As an empty nester, I fondly remember all these milestones in my kid's lives. I always wanted four kids, but decided to stop after two (chilbbirth is painful!) Hope you have a ton of fun this summer! Thanks so much for sharing

Hi All,

Thanks for stopping in to read the post and for commenting on my "graduate."  Time passes so quickly - I can't imagine the day when we will be empty nesters - but it will come!  Have a great summer, too! - Jennie
