The Last Dance

The seniors gathered together last night for their graduation party, the last "official" event that they would attend as a class. It was bittersweet, as you may imagine.

It was also exhausting for the parents who pulled it all together, from the initial planning way back in the fall, to the final cleanup. I speak as one of those (very tired) parents.

I am tired, y'all (very tired).

But, it was so worth it! Watching the kids ooh and ahh over the S'mores and Candy Bar that I put together made it worth it...







...hearing the peals of laughter echoing off the mountains surrounding the golf course as they competed frantically in the Minute-to-Win-It games that the entertainment committee put together made it worth it...











...spending time with these kids that I have grown to love like my own made it worth it...









...and, the best part is, I got to do it with some of the best parents that I know...







Totally worth the sore feet, aching back, blinding migraine, exhaustion, and dehydration.

Totally.

What a ride this has been, and, what a privilege it has been to catch it all on film. Well, in digital format. What the hell, you know what I mean.
