The calm before the storm. I kicked off June by attending a very special graduation. It's not very often that our kids from Peris are able to attend and graduate from high school. Two years ago, you may remember this picture that I posted....
Nine kids started the year, six are pictured here, because by the second or third week of school, this was how many were still there. Two years later, four graduated from high school!!! I am so proud of them that they were able to overcome coming from a "special" school and attending a regular high school. Way to go guys!! Actually, the girl in the top left corner also finished high school, just at a different school!! Way to go, Oana!! I'm proud of you, too!
June was spent getting the houses ready for 37 people in July, end of school field trips and activities, hosting the Reno team and celebrating Ruthie's preschool graduation.
