Of Grad and Gifts…

Next week our oldest Grandson will graduate from High School. As many other bloggers have said…”Where has the time gone?”
We are very proud of this guy…he has always been a ray of sunshine in our lives.

This summer he plans on going to Latvia with GEM to teach English, and he is enrolled in the faculty of Education for the fall. My Dad, his Great Grandfather, was a teacher so he would be so proud!All this grad talk started me thinking about my own high school grad, in 1955…yes, that’s right …55 years ago! I was only 16 then (another story) and had met this nice young man, who later became my dear hubby. He drove 400 miles to attend my grad, and gave me a nice gift too…a rhinestone necklace (all the rage then) I brought it out yesterday for a photo.005-2 …and a closeup…011-2
I think I’ll wear it when I attend the grad ceremony next week, or maybe to the grad party…
