A week or so before the graduation, there was the prom. I think this might have held more appeal. Here's Jade and her boyfriend of 2 years, Mike. He's a really nice boy & he's just crazy about her. :o)
Jade's dress was absolutely gorgeous. She bought it in NYC when she was there on a school trip. She said she wanted a red dress and while in Macy's shopping, she happened to turn around and there it was. Only one. She tried it on and it fit! It was meant to be.
Aren't they just so cute??
Here's the graduate waiting to go up & get her diploma. The ceremony itself was a couple of hours, but entertaining enough. Mike was able to tell us about this girl or that guy because he knew a lot of the students having only graduated last year himself. He kept it interesting.
Mama Rita is so proud of her granddaughter.
In the winter, Jade & Kristina went to the college to register and check out the campus. Here's a picture Kristina had of the two of them that I really liked. YOU GO GIRLS!
