Very early this morning my dad dropped my off at CEVEC. I had not been there for awhile because I have been working at the fabric store. It was good to see my friends. We spent most of the day rehearsing. Then TJ picked me up and took me home so I could take a nap.
When I woke up, there was a surprise waiting for me.
Hmm...I wonder what would happen if I gave it the 'ole...
...punch one, two, three. After a short round of boxing practice, my mom said it was time to get dressed.
All the girls received a flower to wear with a pink ribbon.
This is my friend Brittany. We have known each other for a really long time. We were born just one week apart back in August 1989.
These are my friends Brittany and Courtney. They are twins. But I can always tell them apart.
Grandma and Grandpa surprised me. I did not know they were coming.
This is Mrs. Rose. She was my teacher at the apartment.
Here we come. Pomp and Circumstances played over and over again. Everyone stood up once we were all at our seats.
Here is my friend Brittany again. She gave a speech. She did a good job.
I sat in the front row. Yikes, that meant I had to be on my best behavior.
Coming out in the audience to give my mom a flower.
Time for our row to stand up. Soon I heard, "Sarah Ely. Employed at JEllen's house of fabric." Haaa, that was my cue to move.
And so I moved really fast. "Hello Mr. Ross," I said before shaking his hand.
Darn. This hat won't stay on my head. Good thing it is almost the end.
It's over. My friend Richard came up to see me before we left the stage.
Here I am with my friend Anthony.
Time for a few group shots. TJ and Julie are here. No Matt though. He is in Washington DC with his class from school.
And now one with mom in it. Usually she is the one taking pictures. Thanks Julie.
We all got a present from the principal, Mrs. Schwartz. I wonder what it is?
Nice. It is a personal grooming case. That will come in handy.
This is John Kabat. He has been so good to me. He always makes sure I have what I need to succeed. Thank you. He is retiring at the end of the year. Good luck Mr. Kabat.
OMG!!!!!!!!!! It's Mr. K. I was really mad at him earlier today. But I can't stay mad at him forever.
We are going to be best friends for life. I am so happy now.
Mrs. Henschel and me. She has been my teacher for the last two years. This year she came to visit me at the store.
My friends. Damon and the guys.
Once we got home, I could hardly walk. My dad had to help me in the house I was so tired.
Time for a cookie. A big chocolate chip cookie with milk. Then it is bedtime.
First, I have a card to open. Oh YES!!! Target cards. Thank you Grandma & Grandpa. You're the best:)
Welp, that's a wrap. Graduation Class of 2011 comes to an end. Now I really have to get to bed because I have to go to work in the morning.
