Big Graduation Weekend!

Taylor_graduatesWe're still recovering from a long weekend of celebration as Taylor graduated from high school. The folks were down on Friday for the commencement ceremony. The ceremony was actually pretty good as these things go. One of the student speakers was Taylor's old boyfriend (now her good friend), Andrew, who did an admirable job. Taylor was all smiles as she crossed the stage to accept her diploma.

We didn't see much of Taylor on Saturday as she made the Taylor_dadround of graduation open houses for her friends. Her open house was on Sunday afternoon and we shared the Open House with her friends Emily and Sophie (Emily and Sophie are joining Taylor on her mission to Romania and Sophie will be her roommate at college in the fall). There was a steady stream of family and friends who came to congratulate the girls and enjoy some of the ten chocolate cheesecakes Wendy made last week. Taylor felt really honored by everyone's presence.

Suzanna_wendyYesterday was a holiday. After all the weekend festivities, we needed a little rest and relaxation. With Wendy's little sister, Suzanna, visiting this week (that's Suzanna getting a kiss from Wendy in the lower picture) we decided to enjoy the Memorial Day weather to take in an Iowa Cubs game (Cubs Win!) followed by a cookout with our friends, the Vande Lune's.

I've never met someone who shared the same name as I do, and then I find out that we both have daughters who graduated from high school this last week. What a small world!

Tom Vanderwell (all one word) LOL

Ha! Thanks for stopping by, Tom. Congrats to you and your daughter. Next time I'm in GR visiting I'll buy you a cup of coffee!
