Graduation Night

It was Nick's big Grade 8 graduation last night. What great weather we had - a little humid but overall a lovely evening. Big sister Kelly took him out to get a hair cut in the afternoon. And luckily he was able to borrow a suit from JF, which amazingly fit quite well. He looked quite dapper and very grown up! After the ceremony, I had the first dance with Nick, as all the moms danced with their sons and fathers danced with their daughters. The girls all looked incredible with their long gowns and beautiful hairstyles.

After the dance, the grads all met up at a local restaurant and now back to the real world for them...although most are not attending school today. Nick has to get ready for his grad trip to Quebec City next week.

Here is Nick with his 2 sisters.

Congrats to Nick! Wow, he looks like he should be graduating from highschool, not grade 8!!!

Very lovely pics!

Congratulations on your graduation, Nick! He's a tall boy, but as I currently have a 15 yos, I'm familiar with the I'm almost grown up look. It's amazing the changes from 13 to 15, then from 16 to 18!
What a lovely family, Wendy!
