There was (is? kinda) a controversy on a popular blog about stereotyping Native Americans. I personally think stereotypes are stupid- especially since EVERY single race has them. In the midst of this, my precious oldest child graduated from highschool in a sea of 1000 Redskins. Their motto: "Redskins for life". I think this should be true of everything, if you feel prejudiced against- don't. Someone else is being prejudiced about something else somewhere else. (Huh?)
Regardless of controversy (not on this blog which is read by 5 people): I would like to show you some pictures of my baby's graduation (and, my camera is an asshole, and won't flash in many situations that require flash unless it's on manual focus and my husband insists "IT SHOULD ALWAYS WORK ON AUTO",) so we (he) missed some of the big pics (like, ya know- walking the stage *sigh*)
A ridiculously large amount of chairs- for an equally enormous graduating class.
The stage. Why are there sparkly palm trees? I do not know. I do think I could probably right a Dr Suess-ish book about it though. My boys insisted they were fireworks, but that's just silly- fireworks aren't attached to the ground. Duh.
Since I don't have a picture of my child WALKING THE STAGE (GIB!), I will just show you her gorgeous, mature face that has been shown on this blog for over 3 years. She's so grown, so pretty, so confident, and surprisingly tougher than I ever thought she'd be. I adore this kid... Adore with every OUNCE of my being!
She's the one in red.
I love this pic! It was obviously NOT taken by the hairy faced man formerly known as Gib (I have a theory that he's all sad that his head won't grown hair, so he's growing it the only place he can. His face (and arms and hands and legs, but not his head).
I am so proud of my baby girl!
