Tonight's post is more of a family post. You all probably know I have 5 grandsons and only 1 grandaughter. Well she turned 14 in Feb. and graduated last night from jr. high and will enter high school at Fremd High in Palatine, IL. Her brother will be a junior there this year. The unfortunte part of graduating is a lot of schools funnel into this jr. high but only about 10% go on to Fremd and the rest go to Palatine High. Therefore friends they have made in the past two years are split up. I guess that is life and you just go forward. Jenny is a very happy girl and is very friendly so I know before long she will know half the school.
We got there about 6.30 for the 7 program and were seated right on the ground floor in front of the stands because of Harv being in the wheelchair.
My daghter had nabbed 2 tickets so she bought her 7th. grader who will be doing the same thing next year. She crawled into the bench behind us in the special seating She is also very social and volunteers at all the schools so knew probably half the kids there. I am posting a pic of Jenny herself, one with her Mom & Dad (her dad is my middle son) and one with Grandma who had bought her red roses . She looked lovely and was going on to a party after.
I did comment that it looked more like a high school graduation. 8th graders sure have changed. I spent more time looking at the girls teetering along on very high, bejewelled shoes. Life sure does change.
Love you Jenny - she was always my girl when she was little. Still is my girl.
