Middle School Graduation

On June 20, 2012, Nick graduated from Long Beach Middle School.  Daddy and Nick bought this sign at Party City.  We hung it up in the house to celebrate.

Grammy took the long train ride to see the ceremony.  Grammy said, "this is a special occasion and I want to be there to see it!"

We took Nick to the school to meet Ms. Weitzman and Ms. Lilly. 

Ms. Lilley said, "oh Nick, you look so handsome!"

And Ms. Weitzman said over and over again, "I'm so proud of Nick and I'm going to miss him!"

Then it was time for the ceremony.  All the kids walked into the room while the music was playing.  Nick walked with his teacher and had a big smile on his face.  He sat in the chair and clapped for the other kids.  Then it was Nick's turn to walk up to the stage.  At first Nick was happy and smiling, but then he stopped walking and looked scared.  He patted his head and flapped his hands.  Kids started shouting out "go Nick!" and "good job Nick!"  A man stood up and took Nick's hand and walked him to the other side of the stage where his teacher was waiting.

When Nick got to his teacher she turned him around to face the audience.  The whole room was clapping for Nick.

After the ceremony, mommy took this picture of Nick with daddy and McKenzie.  Nick looked very proud of himself.

We were all VERY proud of Nick!
