When I moved from St. Bonaventure Elementary to Scotus Central Catholic Junior High, and then on to Scotus Central Catholic High School, there was no continuation ceremony. I just cleaned out my desk, said goodbye to my school friends, waved adios to my teacher (who waved back and told me not to let the door hit me in the butt on the way out), and left for the summer. Apparently that’s not the way things roll anymore, at least not in Denver, as evidenced by the fact that we attended not one, but two, continuation ceremonies on Thursday.
Dagny is finished with elementary school and moving on to middle school…..
…..and Addie completed eighth grade and is continuing on to (say it ain’t so) high school…..
Addie was recognized for being an honor roll (with distinction) member. Good girl. She’s smart as well as pretty…..
And this is what she looked like the day after the continuation…..
By the way, the reason Papa isn’t in the grandparents’ photo is that he had to miss Addie’s ceremony to take Alastair to the airport where he will spend a week with his Aunt Julie camping at Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
My grandkids never fail to make me smile.
Have a great weekend.
