5th Grade Graduation

Braden graduated from 5th grade today with honors :) Next year he will be going to middle school (I think that's what it's called now.....growing older is such fun especially when they keep changing the names of things, like schools, streets, highways, etc. :)

Since I am still having trouble with my camera I was only able to take three pictures.
I can hear a big sigh of relief on that statement, lol :) Yes, I was prepared to use all the space available, I even had new batteries in the camera but it died after each picture.

This is Jackie and Aaron. Until I looked at this picture I didn't realize how much they resemble one another. Can you tell Aaron is about ready to fall asleep? He works the night shift and stayed up so he wouldn't miss the graduation. Brotherly love :) Missy would be proud!

Braden's getting his diploma. He actually had a big grin on his face.
After the ceremony we were able to get one more picture....

Everything is on video so we didn't miss a shot. Braden was camcording after the graduation so that's going to be interesting to see.
I wonder if I can get shots off the camcorder.....

What a wonder thing it is to get such wonderful memory keepers as a graduation. I wish I had pictures of my graduation. I do have an old pic of me in my new dress that I wore. I graduated 8th, grade, not 5th. :)

My little grandson graduated Kindergarten last night. :)
