Graduating Elementary School

This is a big month for D.. not only will he be turning 11 this week but he also graduated elementary school! They held a simple outdoor ceremony. Guests we kept at a minimum but it was special nonetheless.        


He received a certificate of graduation from his principal
 

and a dragon pin (their school mascot) from the vice principal


His two teachers.


and my parents who live on a whole different continent yet decided to come visit us for a couple weeks.

We went out to celebrate that night at The Melting Pot. The kids had never had tried fondue before.




I can't believe D is going to be a middle schooler soon.. I am both excited and terrified for him.  

D's thoughts on going to graduating elementary school on moving on to middle school: 'I am looking forward to lockers and picking classes. I will miss having recess because there is no recess in middle school. I am scared about forgetting things and the possibility of detention but still excited to be going to middle school.'

What a special event!! Even better that your parents got to be a part of it.

They're meant to grow up, but I can totally relate to the mixed emotions.

Congratulations to your son, but for his 11th birthday, and graduating from elementary school. How lovely that your parents flew over for the ceremony. This must have made it even more special for him! xxx

He looks so sweet and happy, although he's at the age that he might not like being described as sweet.

Love,
Janie

Oh, what a special day for your son! And a wonderful family celebration. That's great that your parents came all the way to celebrate with you all. I know that isn't easy. I'm so happy for you and your family. Yes, middle school is sometimes an awkward time, but don't worry, I think your son will do fine. It's just part of the school age years. You are an aware and wise Mom, so I think you'll be good too. : )

Great pictures of the graduation. And how great that your parents travelled to see it. The first time for fondue would be really fun! I remember back in the 70's when it was so popular, we had two sets.
