On Wednesday, my oldest niece, Katherine, graduated from high school. She lives in a rural area and there were only 129 graduates. My son graduated from Junior High a few weeks ago and his class size was 692.
My mom, Kate, my sister Debbie and me.
Getting her diploma.
A lot of kids decorated their caps. I was fun to see the different styles.

Katherine decorated hers but it was upside down.

After the ceremony, we were invited to Kate's boyfriend's home. His parents had an amazing Tex-Mex buffet.
The top picture is of Kate and Weston in front of their 3 tiered topsy turvy cake.

We had 500 graduates and that was in '84. I have a friend that lived way down south in AZ and had 150 kids total in the entire school K - 12. That must have been interesting!

Such a lovely picture of all the girls! Your mom looks fabulous!

Have a great weekend.

The photo of your mom and "her girls" is just wonderful---you all look beautiful. What an exciting time for everyone.

I have to say 129 sounds like a HUGE class. My graduating class had a whopping 54!!! :) The nice thing about a small class is that you have lots of opportunities to participate in lots of activities!! I did and it really made an impact on my life.

Hope you have a great weekend!! Dana
