Umbrellas & Balloons

 Awhile back, I posted Anne Marie's graduation from Governor's School. Well, last week she graduated from high school! It was outside, and it was cold and drizzling!





We went with her two sisters.


The school orchestra was all ready.



And here come the graduates, walking in to wild applause.



Anne getting her diploma, Honor list, and eight scholarships.



Time to throw their caps in the air. Unfortunately, I only caught two that were airborne!


Through the ceremony, this crow scolded us from the light tops. Next post will be the big party!

You are rightly proud of your granddaughter's accomplishments and too bad about the rainy outdoor graduation. Looking forward to the party post next and will you be sharing about Anne Marie's future plans?

Congratulations to Anne Marie.
What a pretty girl she is.
I am a little confused about what Governor's School is though. I must have missed a post about it somewhere. I did see the one of that graduation too, and was wondering even while reading that one what it was.

So is this her second graduation? Is the Governor's School the same as her high school?
Well she has done a FABULOUS job with all those awards.
Does she know what she wants to do in the fall?
Congrats.
