Yesterday evening we celebrated J.'s beginning band concert and today we celebrated A.'s graduation from college! December has definitely been a month of remembered events!
Last night, J. was all excited about being able to perform for us and we were excited to hear him! We couldn't wait to get to the school and listen to him perform. He wasn't exactly thrilled about my snapping photos either – but I had to be sure the camera was working properly LOL!
The beginning band class played Good King Wenceslas, It Came Upon a Midnight Clear, Jolly Old St. Nicholas, Up on the Housetop, and Jingle Bells for us. They did an absolutely FANTASTIC job and we couldn't have been prouder of our young man! I loved playing the piano when I was in high school so having one of my offspring be involved with band at this early stage is a nice feather in my cap LOL!
I cannot begin to tell you how proud I am of A. for graduating today from college. I am literally just bursting with pride. She has always been an exemplary student, always succeeding in all that she puts her mind to.
There were several times during the commencement address to the class that I was almost in tears, and yes, there were several that fell when she was called to receive her diploma. I think T. and I yelled louder than anyone else in the auditorium when A. was called to the front!
In case you cannot tell, that's T.'s "I'm proud of you!" grin!
...and this was me trying not to cry!
