Madison's last day of high school is today. Really? How is it, that my baby girl is old enough to be graduating from high school already? It can hardly comprehend it all!
We've been busy tying up loose ends (end of year projects, extra credit and studying for finals), as well as getting the graduation announcements (courtesy of Jostens) and graduation party invitations (courtesy of Shutterfly) addressed and out in the mail.
Starting tomorrow, things will begin to get out of hand! The first of the graduation parties that Madi has been invited to (and some that we are invited to as well), begin. No school for the kids next week, but there is the Activities Awards Night on Monday, and then the Athletics Awards Night on Tuesday, along with several rehearsals for both Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation thrown in throughout the week. On Thursday night we celebrate the Baccalaureate Mass at the Cathedral of the Madeleine, which is beautiful! Definitely one of the things I love about my kids attending a Catholic High School! ALSO, Tyson will be home from college on Thursday! Woot Woot! Can't wait to have everyone under one roof again!
Friday night is Madi's big graduation party! A time to celebrate with friends and family! I have been busy making these
Tissue paper Pom Poms to hang from the trees in the backyard! I know, I know….as you can tell from Madi's graduation announcements….Puple and Yellow are NOT her high school colors! LOL! She LOVES the color Purple, and wanted that to be the "theme" of HER night! I also rented a Cotton Candy machine for the night! Hoping to serve Purple cotton candy! Fun, right?
A few more graduation parties on Saturday, and then Madi's Graduation on Sunday at Abravanel Hall.
Such a crazy time for all of us! But, what an exciting time for Madi! Her facebook status last night said:
beginnings are usually scary, and endings are usually sad, but its everything in between that makes it all worth living…♥
I love it! Perfect for her and this time of year!
Thanks for sticking with me, and allowing me to document the personal stuff that is going in my life!
