Graduation Day!

Don't look for photos. The auditorium was too dark and shadowed for anything good.

He made us laugh. All of the kids said thank you to their parents and Little Squid's bit went something like this (I am paraphrasing but NOT making this up).

"I'd like to thank my mom for dropping me off at school almost every day and my dad for making sure we are fed. Thanks to my sister for being here and for being the best sister there is. Thanks to my grandparents for giving birth to my parents. I want to thank my turtles for being the best pets even if they want to take over the world. And, I'd like to thank Homer for writing the Iliad."

Really. No kidding. The kid thanked a long dead Greek poet.

Laughter, tears and smiles.

Congratulations, Little Squid!
