6th Grade Promotion Reception

After Mass, the class had a reception for all guests in the Parish Center with cake and lemonade served.

Numerous photos were taken by me and many other parents on this occasion.
Cara and Charli were all smiles after receiving their certificates of completion.
Deb and I insisted that these two neighborhood kids get their photo taken together.  Cara and Elliot are friends and neighbors, but they fight and argue like siblings instead.  But, if one of them needs something, they both turn to the other for help!
I had to take a photo of Cara and David together.  These two have been in the same classroom every year.  They have been together for two years of preschool and every year since.
These girls needed a goofy moment after posing for so many photos!
Thirty-five 6th Graders graduated, but there are only 12 girls in the grade.  This photo shows all 12 of these beautiful girls.

Grandpa and Grandma Leader came down for Mass and graduation.  Justin also got to attend graduation before going to visit Lynne at daycare.
As parents, we were so proud of Cara and all of her classmates!  

One mom called this our stair-step photo.  Cara is still growing at a fast rate.  She grew 1 1/2 inches during the school year and is now 5 ft. 6 1/2 inches.  She blew past me at the start of last summer.

Take care,


  1. Congrats to Cara and the graduates! What a fun occasion!

  2. Congratulations Cara. I love her outfit! The stair step photo is too cute.
