Baccalaureate and Graduation!!!!

TCM Ensemble 2007-2008

I had never attended a baccalaureate ceremony before and didn't really know what to expect. Now I know. I guess I should have looked it up in the dictionary.

Baccalaureate - noun. A solemn ceremony which takes place the evening before graduation. Purpose of baccalaureate is to allow the parents of said graduate to cry like a baby in a setting slightly more private than commencement.

Capped and gowned . . .

on the front row . . .

I spoke and managed to somewhat
keep my composure . . .

Ensemble sang . . .

the night ended with a charge to the graduates to
live lives honoring to the Lord.


The diploma!

"Glocks locked and ready to rock!"
Commencement speaker -Lance Cpl. Klay South
(I like the look on Megan's face -she was afraid
he was going to back up and land in her lap.)

All That I Am
sung by the senior girls

Tassel now on the right!

Class of 2008!

I'm so glad you are back to blogging! We are so sorry that we could not be at graduation! (I think May 17th was actually an entire week instead of a day!) Just know, we (or rather I) would have cried like babies with you, as we consider Megan one of "our kids"!
