More of Michelle's Graduation Festivities

They do things a bit different here. "Grad" is a combination of graduating, the graduation party, and the prom. When you say "grad" you are talking about the whole package deal. The graduation ceremony is one day, the grad banquet and dance and all night party are the following evening.





This would be Lou Lou, not me. Just so you know.


Julia came to visit last summer and met a few of Michelle's friends so it wasn't so odd that Julia would go to grad with one of them. Rawley didn't have a date and Julia sort of missed out on the traditional graduation activities at her high school since she attended Moorpark Community College this last year.


This was taken at the dance. Tayt and Scott. Such nice nice boys! See the sign to the side? That would be the "grad theme". Michelle was on the planning committee and asked me one day if I had any ideas for the theme. It took me back to when Laurel graduated and that one song, "The rest is still unwritten", by the Bettingfield girl. She took that idea to the group and low and behold they voted on it. Funny.
THE END!

Okay! That is the cutest picture of Neal and Michelle. What a perfect picture!!
I was so happy to have been able to go to Michelle's Banquet and be in on some of the fun.

(Lee Lee and I actually ended up putting on the boy's flowers on their lapels that night. The girls had bit of a tricky time. That would have been a funny picture)!!

What great photos! And how refreshing that Michelle chose a dress that is NOT black... :) you see a lot of black.

Perfect theme, too, by the way.
