Now Playing: Harry Potter - Chamber of Secrets
Yesterday College Bound Daughter (formerly known as Senior Daughter) graduated! So now I can let you all know what I've been working on! I had made each of the kids a DVD of pictures a few years ago so I updated CBD's with pictures from the last few years and had that playing during her grad party. I also have been working on her scrapbook - I got pretty carried away & it turned out to be HUGE! I found that it was too thick for the original album so had to go find another one that could be expanded to what I needed. Then I discovered that none of the page protectors would fit in the new one (posts were slightly different than the holes) so had to transfer all the pages into new page protectors! I also made a photo book of all of her "large" school pictures - what else was I going to do with them? Then I had all of her senior photo proofs frames and set out as well as the larger framed pictures. My husband put all her competition medals in a shadowbox so we could display that too. The displays turned out lovely and thanks to my sister, we had the room and tables decorated really good. I hope CBD had a good day and enjoyed the party. Graduation itself was shorter than I thought it would be. With 745 kids graduating plus all the speeches (which they limited to 2 minutes!) we were all done in 90 minutes. Then we had to wait until our daughter found us, posed for pictures and then the travel time back home to pick up everything else for the party.
Here's a great shot of CBD in her cap and gown after graduation!
Isn't she beautiful!
