My "Baby" Graduated!!

My oldest son graduated from 8th grade tonight! It was a beautiful ceremony and he will literally be partying all night long! After the graduation there was a parade with all the kids in convertibles, then on to a dinner-dance, then the boys and girls are divided up for sleepovers and in the morning they will all walk down to the beach to watch the sunrise! What a way to end 8th grade!!

Andy had an amazing run at his grade school! He won the all-school spelling bee FOUR times (and went on the win the county bee).

He was the lead in the school play--Curly in Oklahoma--and gave an awesome singing and acting performance!Plus he played clarinet in the school band, saxophone in the jazz band, not to mention piano! He also went to the state finals for Science Olympiad and won one 1st place and two 3rd place medals!! He was on the football and basketball teams and always on the honor roll. Not too shabby!!
Here are some pics from the graduation:
