Guess Who Graduated?
As you can see from the photographs, Amber Shea graduated from preschool today. Now before I had children, I thought preschool, kindergarten and even sixth grade graduations were ridiculous! Well–as evidenced from the 50 pictures I took this morning at Amber’s graduation–I guess I changed my mind. I arrived 35 minutes early, got a second-row seat and waited–tissues in one hand and the camera in the other–for the ceremony to begin. Both my girls were in the promotion program, but Amber took the stage as she was awarded her certificate. And–although she didn’t intend to–Amber made quite a scene as she received her diploma. As you will see in the photos below, when Amber got up out of her seat, the back of her dress was caught in her underwear. I was too busy taking pictures to notice, but I couldn’t understand why everyone was laughing (or trying hard not to) as she walked over to her teachers. Eric laughed the hardest, I think. Miss Nancy fixed the problem, but not before the whole audience saw her undies. I managed to get two shots of it without even knowing. When Amber saw the pictures later, she got a kick out of it. It’s good to laugh at your embarrassing moments. Amber has been waiting for this day for weeks. She’s been saying all week, "After I graduate, I am in kindergarten!" She is so excited to start home schooling that we decided we’d do a few lessons this summer. Congratulations, Amber!
