At the beginning of June, my baby sister Alonna graduated as salutatorian of her high school. The kids and I were happy to be able to witness her graduation on Sunday, June 5, and then we stayed the whole week at my parents’ house until her graduation open house on Friday, June 10. Luke joined us on Thursday evening. Much fun was had by all! 🙂
Okay, let’s be honest. The kids had fun at the beach, as these pictures were being taken. And then, things went south. We tried to have lunch on our blanket on the sand. The kids tromped all over the blanket in their sandy feet. Ava didn’t want to eat her sandwich, so she dropped it in the sand. The kids complained about their food. Luke called, and as I was trying to talk to him, Jaden was touching a dead fish on the shore. I lost my temper. It was an epic FAIL.
So, back to the happy part of the story… 🙂
We also spent time that week getting ready for the open house, which was a success!
I took lots more pictures of the party…on Melissa’s camera. Oops! 🙂 Suffice it to say, we had a great time.
Alonna plans to attend Grand Valley State University this fall, majoring in elementary ed and living in the honors dorms. We’re proud of you, little sister!
