High School? No Way!!!

A few short weeks ago, Meredith graduated from Grade 8.
I can’t believe that this girl will be going into high school in September:
Where did the time go?

She had a great graduation day. She went to school in the morning for rehearsal, but had the rest of the day off to get ready.

We took some photos in the backyard and I have to say they captured her personality perfectly.
The ceremony took place at the high school. It was spectacular to see the kids all dressed up in their best. I can remember a lot of these kids from preschool and Grade 1. They’ve all grown up so much. The girls’ outfit ranged from floor length gowns to casually pretty summer dresses, from high sparkly heels to flip flops.
It is hard to believe that next year, I will have a child in high school.

I’m so proud of you, Meredith. I’m proud of the person you are and the way you present yourself. I’m proud of the way you treat others and how much you care about the world. I’m proud of how hard you work at school and how you don’t give up when you don’t understand things. I am just plain proud to call myself your momma.
Go get ‘em, sweetheart!!!

Here they are:

I promise to post thoughts and photos from the big Graduation Night soon.
