My Grandson's High School Graduation

My oldest grandchild, Connor, graduated from high school this past Friday.  He is the first grandchild that I could kiss, hold, cuddle with, and who called me "Nana".  He was the first to spend the night, and to capture my heart.  Where did the years go?  Here he is with his cap decorated, and looking so handsome!  


Here is Connor with his siblings and his Mom, my daughter, Molly.


I'm so proud of the young man that he has become!


Here is Connor with his girlfriend, Rachel.  They'll be heading off in different directions soon, with Connor heading to the Marines, and Rachel off to college.  Best wishes to both of them!


My daughter had a Taco Bar party with all the fixings, for Connor and Rachel.  She is the best hostess!  Molly made a photo album for Connor, and a special letter to her son.  It brought tears to my eyes.  

 


Here is the cupcake station, all set up for the graduates, and all the friends that came.   Everyone had such a good time, and the kids went swimming.  

Thank you for your visit!  xo

I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

  1. Congratulations to Connor Kitty! What a handsome young man and such dedication to be a Marine. I love the family photo and the photo of Connor and you and your pretty polka dot dress! A taco bar is such a great idea for entertaining a crowd and I love seeing the Marine Corps flag on the wall, Semper Fidelis ♥

  7. Congratulations to your handsome grandson, Connor! I too remember the day my oldest grandson was born. It was one of the many highlights of my life. My son was so proud to carry him out to show him to me, just for a moment. The taco bar is such a fun idea and one my guy would also enjoy. I wish your Connor all the best as he embarks on his new journey. You are a proud grandmother and I'm so happy for you. Hugs to you, dear Kitty!
