Noah my grandson, graduated last night from High school with honors. It was such a perfect evening. Not hot at all, a soft breeze and blue skies. The rain held off. This class had about five hundred students graduating. And when they started coming out from behind the trees, I couldn’t see him at first, and Shelley had to point him out to me.
Sayeed my son, who is the School Board President, gave the commencement speech. It was such an eloquent and heartfelt speech. I thank God for my children and their children, how proud they have made me feel time and time again. The entire family was there except for Zain, who goes to bed at about 7:30. so he was at home with the baby sitter. Andrew got tired after an hour or so into the program, so Shelley and he left after Sayeed’s speech.
Sayeed with the superintendent of schools.
It was such a great speech. Every one liked it a lot. He makes such an easy job of it by speaking as if he is talking to the graduates individually.
Here is Noah in line to receive the Diploma. He is one of the students to have been in Honor Society and getting high grades. So proud of him. When he received the diploma, I didn’t get his picture because I had focused my camera on Sayeed to see what he would do. He made me proud and he made me cry.
Even now, as I type this and attach the pictures, I have tears in my eyes. After the ceremony, we all gathered together and took some family pictures.
The brothers! Six more years before Davis graduates from High School.
Uncle and nephew.
Brother and sister. Peas in a pod! Always!
Thank you for reading this. Sorry I went overboard with the pictures, but these are only half of what I actually took. So, you can thank me later for not posting all of them! 🙂 🙂
