Showing off her new earrings
We (the Roughton and Raye families) had a Kindergarden Graduation Ceremony for Ella and Eva this past Sunday afternoon. I had briefly thought about it when Shelia told me how special East Memorial's ceremony was but kind of dismissed it. Then Dana suggested that we do something for Ella and Eva. The more I thought about it, the more I thought it was a good idea. I vividly remember my own kindergarten graduation. I remember shopping for my white dress and I even remember my part for the ceremony---singing the song after the Pledge of Allegience. So, all of that said, we decided to have them a pool party at the Raye home. Bryan, Dana's husband and Eva's daddy, has his own brick oven pizza catering business so he made us some super yummy pizza. We also had salad and fresh fruit....and cake, of course! The girls had a great time swimming (as did their siblings, Leah and JB). The water was cold and there were four consistently quivering chins but they had a great time. We presented each girl with a diploma and a gift. Ella has been wanting some new earrings so bad for so long, so that is what she got. Gee, where has the time gone? I can't believe that baby I brought home from the hospital - on what seems like yesterday - is now a kindergarten graduate. Does anybody know how to freeze them?
