The Last Day

Today is the last day of high school classes for my daughter.  Next week, she will only go to school for events and graduation practice.

They have a tradition at her school where the girls (125 of them) take their uniforms and re-vamp them for the last day of school and make them a little crazy.  My daughter used beads, paint, fringe, markers and scissors to make-over her uniform.  Then 125 girls stand in the long driveway and wave and blow airhorns and make a lot of noise to commemorate the day!

This is only part of the line that extended up the driveway.

Her and one of her friends.  The hem of her skirt has now become a headband!
Some of her friends from our area.  It was so much fun to drive up and down the driveway and see all the girls.  I stopped to take some pictures of my own, but I haven't gotten to those yet.  These are my daughters pictures from Twitter. 

Here are the girls making over their skirts in the downstairs of my home last night.  I have no idea what time they stayed up until, but they were all up at 6:00 am, ready and waiting to go!

Question: How fast does four years go?
Answer:  In the blink of an eye!

LOVE IT! One of my favorite traditions of graduation there. From one SHA girl to the next, Elizabeth did it up very well for the last day of school.

I would never want to go back to my high school days, but I remember all the fun we had. Your daughter and her friends should really treasure this time they have together. It looks like they are all having a blast! I'm so happy for them and will pray that the end of high school is all that it should be and more for her... oh, happy day!
