My 'baby' graduated from high school this afternoon. DD17 (almost 18) was one of 574 students - but the ceremony only took90 minutes. Not too bad. Here she is prior to the ceremony. She has grown into a lovely young lady (if I say so myself).
Here she is crossing the stage. They keep the line moving! At least this year they had enough "diplomas" on stage to hand the graduates. Last year they had about 20 more graduates to go when they ran out of the empty folders. It was funny seeing the principle and the superintendent looking under the table, behind the stage - anywhere they could think that some more might be stashed. Of course, they are empty and the graduates had to pick up their actual diploma after the ceremony - but the last group had to walk out of the gym with nothing in their hands.
