The end of the school year is always busy, but it’s a little extra busy with Lex graduating from middle school this year. Earlier this week was Honor’s Night and tonight was their graduation ceremony. Lex made Honor Roll for the past two years and High Honors in 6th grade. Before Honors Night he was asked to give the Student Speech for his team, but he said a hearty “thanks, but no thanks!”
Tonight we went to 8th grade graduation, which was a lovely ceremony in the field beside the school. The weather ended up being perfect, despite days of thunderstorm warnings.
This year they asked the students to answer a short questionnaire and then used their answers to say a few things about each student at graduation. I missed his name being called (but they called him Alexander, so whatever) but caught his comments. Watch his team teachers try to give him a hug in the background. :)
I feel like I should post something deep and meaningful, but I don’t have it right now. It was neat to see all the parents of kids he went to elementary school, and even preschool, with! Everyone’s looking as old as I am. LOL! I have special fondness for his DBS class and was proud of each and every one of them. So cool to see them all growing up. Lex is happy and confident and ready for high school! But first, summer vacation!
