I have a few pictures of the 8th grade celebration we had this past weekend. A surprise, I know that I would post pictures. 🙂 Wesley went through the graduation ceremony for jr. high graduates our states homeschool committee puts together each year. Since celebrating milestones in life is important to me we participated in it.
I don’t have any pictures of Wesley at the actual ceremony. They were too dark since we were at a distance from him. But I did get this one of Zachary and a friend. They look very guilty, don’t you think? They were making plans for when Wesley’s name was announced – and I caught them! It might be safe to say we were one of the loudest sections in the building.
After the ceremony, we went back to our hotel suite where we had a little party.
About 2 hours before the ceremony we worked on getting the food put together. It’s amazing what you can do in a small area.
This picture is for all you mom’s that feel challenged in the creativity department. You don’t have to feel bad ever again. Could you be any less creative than me? I put this board together in just about 20 minutes. For the added decorations to the board, I used Reward Stickers I had on hand.
It was a fun time for Wesley.
We even got a little speech from him.
Russell’s dad and my parents were there.
And finally, all the family except for Seth.
I didn’t get a picture of the dessert table but one thing I made was mini-graduation caps using candy. I got the idea from Bakerella and they are just the cutest thing. You can see what they look like here.
