Mom looks a little tired, but still very proud of her graduate!
Megan had over 730 in her graduation class. The ceremony lasted about two hours. Our friends the Laker's were kind enough to save us seats on the field so we had actual chairs to sit in! (THANK YOU PAM & PAUL!) Daddy and his little girl! ("Quick . . . take a picture and let's get out of here!!")
Megan picking up and signing for her offical diploma.
When we got home, we were treated with an amazing Taco feast that my friend Julie Dransfield coordinated with other friends (Pam, Marleen, Janet, Debbie, Jackie, Gina, & Kimbur). What would I do without amazing friends who have helped carried me these past couple days. Every meal on Friday and Saturday was provided by wards or friends. Amazing!! This meal gave me the energy boost I sorely needed to go onto Phase 3 of the day --- Meg's graduation party!
With 18 extended family and friends gathered around, Megan was asked by each of them a question about her life . . . which she answered. There were certain questions that had a present linked to it for her to open. After the questions, we would ring a bell and she then got to open the gift that was related to the question. The gift questions were:
- What is your summertime job? Scanning pictures . . . and she opened a graduation picture frame.
- What were you born without? Hair! and she opened a new blowdryer . . . (her's died months ago and we've been sharing!)
- Where were you born? Wildomar - Inland Hospital. She then opened a sapphire birthstone ring.
- How many times have your flown in an airplane? She answered 3. Then she opened up her lugguage. She had to open up each piece and in the third piece a helium ballon popped up tied to a sign that said . . . "One more time! Pack your bags . . . you're going to Utah with the Crook's and flying home!"
Megan was so surprised because she thought she was spending the next week babysitting the kids while I was at Girls Camp and then in Las Vegas. Instead, she gets to leave on Sunday and get out of town and spend some time with her Utah family.
This picture is hilarious! It toally dipicts her reaction. Keep in mind, Megan doesn't show very much emotion or excitement -- so this was precious! She was speechless and so excited! We totally surprised her!!! (Which believe me . . .is hard to do!)
Her official sign!
