This was grad weekend
Despite some doubts now and then, my youngest son made it.
After living here for 23 years, this is the first time we will have no kids in school.
Unfortunately, he is in quite a "hate my parents" stage right now
So the celebrations weren't quite as happy as they could have been.
But we managed to get a few smiling photos,
As well as some not so smiley photos
Prom, the next night, was a little better
After much last minute planning,
he and his date arrived in the "Schwabmobile"
which gained a few laughs
even though the letters stuck on this side came off
A few other original ideas:
The following are two brothers, note the guy in the passenger seat
wearing a tank top and a tie, he is the younger brother with the role of driving the vehicle away and parking it.
Trevor and his date looked stupendous
(don't get to use that word very often!)
as did everyone else in their finest.
The emcee speculated that there was about $50,000.00 of grad gowns on the girls alone. Thankfully, we had to provide for boys only!
Many of the kids grew up together and a lot of them we knew as little children, so it was amazing to see them all grown up.
We even, after much chasing and persuading, managed to get a picture of
Trevor with his dad and I.
All and all it was a memorable weekend, and since yesterday was my birthday, hubby and I went to dinner after leaving the kids to their special night.
