Graduation in Kansas City - Part 2

On May 13 at 8:30 pm, Celina officially graduated from Blue Valley Northwest High School during Commencement exercises at the Municipal Auditorium in downtown Kansas City.

Of course, we took pre-graduation photos. The blue and white cords she's wearing mean that she was a DECA International Association of Marketing Student.

We were tickled that our Texas son, Brent and grandson Austin were there to help celebrate, but missed our sweet DIL and littlest grandson, Luke.

It's a high school tradition to decorate one's graduation cap: Colorado State University, Rams.

Milson is still a puppy at age two.

It's tough to get a good picture of the whole family, especially when one member makes it known that he doesn't want to be included.

Though Celina was the seventh student to walk across the stage, it took a long time to graduate somewhere around 430 students. We didn't get home until 10:30 pm, with two of the three little boys asleep.

Celina opened graduation gifts the next day. Among them was the hedgehog pillow I made for her. She's still a big fan of hedgehogs, and wants one from her Uncle Evan's awesome pet store: Olathe Pet Shop. However, a live hedgehog isn't in Celina's future. So hopefully this Colorado State-colored hedgehog will be a nice substitute on her dorm room bed.
Isn't Celina's Bapa a cutie? That face!

  3. Very cute hedgehog pillow. I'm backtracking some of your posts that I viewed quickly but was to rushed for time to read them and reply. Today I'm catching up. :)
