Pomp and Circumstances
|All that gold filing in...|
First, there was Caleb's (Boy #1) Honors Medallion Ceremony.
Notice the sea of yellow gowns? That’s what graduates were supposed to wear. My son, because he had no intention of going through the regular graduation ceremony, didn’t buy a gown.
Once I realized the dress code for the ceremony also called for the gown, I felt awful. I asked Caleb if he wanted to ditch- just ask them for the medallion and get the heck out of Dodge. He said no. He came to go through the ceremony, and he was going through the ceremony.
But he does. He’s pretty awesome like that.
That same night, his little brother, Carter (Boy #3) found out that he’d be Salutatorian for his graduation two days later. He had to write a speech ASAP and turn it in for approval. He asked me to help, but I was in Morgantown getting
ready to watch his big brother. I told him to just jot something down, turn it in, and we’d polish it up after graduation practice.

Carter printed out a copy of his speech for his teacher and shut off the computer...without saving. But he didn't worry. He was writing a revised version later and he knew the gist of what he planned to say.

Thanks to our hosts Lexa, L.G, and Tonja Drecker for this weekly good things check in!
I want to give a special shout out and thank you to my blog tour hosts this week. It's great to have amazing friends.
Facebook Launch party for Swept Away was lot of fun. I tweaked the format a little to make things a little more interesting. Instead of a large give-away, I bought several small give-aways. At the beginning of each hour, I offered a give-away and left those open for twenty-four hours to encourage party goers to drop in at their leisure and scroll through the posts to sign up for the freebies.
