2016 Blue Jeans Week 20

Last week of school for Miss A, her senior recital, and graduation was Sunday.  Graduation will have to be another post.  Way too many pictures of that.  Have enjoyed having Ben's parents here to celebrate.  It has been awesome. Pretty Miss A heavy week, but that is to be expected.  Take a look at our week. . .

Miss E had her end of the year band and jazz band concert.  She did awesome!  Last of 3 end of the year concerts.  Done!

Miss A on her last day of high school!!!

Miss A and some great friends at the baccalaureate ceremony.

Our school started a new tradition this year--the senior walk.  The seniors all dressed up went to each elementary school and the middle school where the kids and teachers lined the halls, cheered and gave them high-fives.  It was a neat experience.  A great new tradition to start!  This was when Miss A was at my Mom's school.  

Getting set up for the senior recital.  We had a picture from her very first piano recital in Nov 2005.  She has been taking piano lessons for 12 years.

Miss A and her piano teacher of 12 years.  She has been a huge part of her life.

Miss A played about 8 different pieces--all but 2 memorized.  Then she sang one song.

And recited her forensics poem that made it to state.  It was about 45 minutes and she just rocked it!!!! I was so very proud of her!

Then onto graduation!


  1. I can't wait to see the graduation pictures. Yay! It's done and congrats to her. Looks like a great last week of her school career. Love that new tradition with a senior walk at the elementary schools. What a great thing for the seniors and for the younger kids to see.

  2. I can't believe that Miss A is already graduated! Sorry I've been MIA on checking blog posts and making comments (I'm swamped w/ Girls Camp preparations). That's so incredible that she also got a $16K scholarship. I know y'all are so very proud of her, and should be proud of yourselves for raising such an amazing daughter. :)
