Michelle's Graduation!

Last night was Michelle's high school graduation. Four down with one to go!
They have Rutherford Scholarships for students who achieve honor grades in their core classes and Michelle was awarded $1000.00 to go towards her schooling. She also was given an award and $100.00 for her achievement in a food studies class. She loves to cook so this was a great award for her.
Don't bother counting , we already did and there are 110 students.

Look who showed up. Laurel and Julia. Julia drove up from Provo and caught a ride with Laurel. Michelle was overjoyed to have her sister and her best friend there.

And of course I continued the tradition of making leis. A graduation with no leis is like, I don't know, candy with no sugar? It's just not right. Michelle has some really good friends. Tayt Low, Avery Leavitt, and Scott Anderson.




Where else do you hang a lei?

Congratulations Michelle - well done on the scholarships and recgnition of your efforts... now a whole new world awaits!!! Neal will feel like Jake - the lone and dreary world of no siblings left to distract mom and dad from focused attention on the ONLY child! Somehow, life changes significantly when the house dwindles to one... but oh the reunions!

Looks like a sane number of graduates to enjoy and appreciate. I dread Jake's graduation of thousands as he is a "T".

These are great pics and how Michelle has blossomed into a mini Lee!

Wonderful photos, Marilee! Congratulations to Michelle. I still can't believe it, I just know she still has a couple of years of high school left. I think the lei tradition is the BEST-!
