not to mention celebrate graduation!

The post you've been waiting for. . .
The post with pictures of my graduation celebration!  And my vintage gown!
 
However, the first picture must needs have myself wearing one of those horrid, hot, shapeless masses over my dress known, simply, as. . .
The Gown.
 
Also, The Cap.  That enormous chunk of covered pasteboard perched on one's head like some sort of disoriented and inverted pie plate.
 
(Yes, I am exaggerating hugely.  I really did enjoy getting to dress up in all of my traditional and nonsensical splendor and celebrate this milestone in my life!)
 
Timothy, there, in the black fedora, had the right idea.  I should have brought my pith helmet. . . =D
 
After the ceremony, one of the graduates had a limousine waiting outside to take us all for a lovely ride through the countryside.  It was really fun.  I wish I had pictures, but alas!  I'll leave it to your imagination to visualize the posh hilarity of eight homeschool grads reclining in a limo, goblets filled with sparkling cider, enjoying themselves hugely.
 
 
 
Afterwards, we all met up at one of the grad's home for a lovely BBQ.
And took pictures of sweet things.
 
Like these girls.  I love these girls - and look!  They all match!
 
With Ellen the kid - who is fast becoming a gorgeous young lady. . .
 
The mad hatter sisters - Lilly & I
 
My sweet Matilda
 
Clara defies description as the most darling thing on this earth.
 
 
And my sweet mother, broken fibular bone and all.  I love you, Ma!
 
Well, that's all for now.  Have a beautiful evening, friends!

lol.  Love Timothy's fedora.
I can imagine the "posh hilarity";D
"The Gown" is indeed the gown.  LOVE it.  You looked absolutely gorgeous.
 
Lovely pictures of you and the girls:)
I don't know if I've forgiven you yet for not getting a picture with me, though!!  I matched too, you know...
No, I don't think I've forgiven you...but I will eventually...maybe...someday...I think;)
 
I love you anyway,
~Tasha~
 
P.S. Did I ever tell you how much I love you, dear?  Well, I love you forever and beyond:)

Kellie! How wonderful!  That is SUCH a lovely dress you're wearing - you're simply beautiful. :D  I love how you have your own style that is not influenced by the outside world - it's seriously refreshing.  Don't ever lose that. 
 
I'm so sorry we couldn't meet on Thursday - I would have really loved that.  Hopefully someday (sooner than later!)
 
Blessings!

@ Grace - Thank you! ;)
 
@ Tasha - It was so wonderful to meet the B family!  I really enjoyed talking with Hannah.
And I felt perfectly horrid about not getting a picture with you - you had to leave before I could even saying goodbye!  And I was hoping to get our traditional "Christmas" picture since we were all dressed up -  oh, well.  But we need to get that picture taken before the year is up! :)
 
@ Corrie - Thanks so much - you're too kind;)  And I hope I never shall...
I understand.  We'll get together one of these fine days!  How was your competition?
 
@ Stryker - I am the only person pictured wearing green - perhaps the colors on your computer monitor are deceiving you.  Thanks for visiting my blog - let's keep the conversation edifying!

Yes! Get together we must - it's just a matter of time. :D  The competition was great!  I had way too much fun.  I am part of a band (5 younger accordionists ranging in age from 15-24. . . I'm the 24. . . and 1 upright bass player).  We call ourselves the Portatos (a musical term) and since that sounds so much like potato - we have been nicknamed accordionly :) 
 
I hope to do a blog entry on Leavenworth soon - but have been unable to actually add pictures to my posts today. 
 
CONGRATS! by the way on your graduation. :D  I can't believe I forgot to say that earlier. . .

Hey Kellie - I had created a private blog to share photos with my sister while she's away from home. I don't have a ton of pictures up of the accordion festival, but I did send you an invite (since I trust you :D) so you can look at them if you like.

Thanks so much for the invite!  The pictures are too fun. :)  I'm positively aching to see you play accordion - and show me (many) things, as well;)  
Love your band's name!

Yes, aren't the Bs wonderful?!  I'm really hoping to get to know them better this summer.  Hannah is so sweet:)
 
Ach, it's okay.  I've forgiven you, btw.  Figured I'd better do that before Weiser;)
Definitely need to take our "Christmas" picture=)

LOL! Yeah, what genious thought up that design?? ;-) I love how that one guy put his tassel on the fedora--clever!
 
That is such an elegant gown, Dahling. And forgive me, but I must confess I envy you the ability to look so beautiful in Spring-green! The hat is perfect with the gown, BTW.
 
Congrats, Grad!
God bless,

Yep, sometimes I get carried away with my descriptive sentences;)  I would thank that genius to keep his brilliant ideas in headwear to himself. . .=D
 
Thank you, dear.  Green is my very favorite color, so I'm glad you think it suits me!

Congratulations! And you look gorgeous in your dress and hat - love the dress and hat! (BTW, you could send a picture of you in them to Stepping Out over at Feelin' Feminine again - I believe they don't have much formal wear there!)

Thank you!  And that is a fun idea - I think I shall!  I wonder which picture I should use?  Suggestions, anyone? =)

Yes, I think that one would work best - although my favourite is the one with your mom. :-)

Most recently mom and dad just got back from germany on a 4 week trip! Dad had to germany on business so mom joined him! They had a wonderful time but we're all glad they made it home safely!
 
This fall my plans are: help christophers wife with their new baby, (baby Nathan is coming this Thanksgiving!!!)
enroll at Carroll Community College, get my drivers license, and
 finish up high school. :)
 
OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Little Clara is NOT little anymore!!!
 
I can't believe how much she's grown!!!
How has your family been?!?!?
I've missed you guys sooo much!!!
