Eva graduated from 8th Grade today. It seems like it was only the other day that we were dropping her off for her first day of Kindergarten at SMSH. She has done really well at the school and was even part of the National Junior Honor Society. She worked really hard and studied hard. Not everything came easily to her but she never stopped working hard. Her best subjects were English and Art. She excelled at both. She has such a creative spirit.

Graduation was very nice. We had a reserved pew in the front of the Church and we were able to fit almost everyone who came to watch the graduation.

Mem and Grandfather came up, Auntie Tara and Uncle Erik were also there along with Auntie Shelby and Uncle Tim, Dylan and Kylie. Miss Colleen was also there. After the graduation we had everyone over to the house for some pizza. We had everyone in the back yard and enjoyed some pizza from Bonillas.

After Eva opened her gifts she and Andy went down to the Cape for the weekend to stay with Mem and Grandfather. This was because Allison and I are heading to my College Reunion tomorrow.

Eva’s Last Day At SMSH

I can’t believe that today was Eva’s last day at SMSH. I picked her up at the 8th Grade Walkout. Each year the 8th grade parades through the whole school to cheers from the students. Then they exit through the main doors and greet the parents who are waiting to take them home. It was a half day for Eva and the rest of the 8th graders. I picked her up and took her to lunch at Five Guys. She was excited about that little trip.

After that we went home and hung out and watched Ms. Marvel. Then we got Andy and went to Karate.

Eva and her classmates also have another tradition and that is to decorate their school uniform with something that will symbolize where they are going to High School next year. Eva is attending Bishop Feehan and so she put her graduating year and a shamrock on her school dress shirt. That is another fun tradition.
