A couple of weeks before the graduation ceremony, there was a Robing Ceremony. I had never heard of such a thing, but it is a ceremony where the students receive their cap and gown. The student chooses someone they admire to "robe" them on stage. When we found out about the ceremony, T was stressing over who she should have place her robe on her. She narrowed it down to R and chose him to participate in the robing ceremony. This was a neat ceremony, and it really made us realize that graduation was actually coming!
After the robing ceremony, our next graduation activity was The Scholarship Ceremony at Oklahoma Christian University. T was awarded a Dean's Scholarship at OC, and we are so proud of her!!
|T accepting her scholarship award. So very proud of this girl!!|
|And just so ALL the attention wasn't on his sister, Little R struck a quick pose afterwards!|
|Brother & Sister are very proud of T, too!|
|Sweet decorations made by friends!! These boys can create anything from paper and Legos!|

|And now she's a graduate!!|
|So proud of you T!!!|
But all the hard work was worth it. We had a house full of family and friends, celebrating this big accomplishment with our girl! We loved having everyone here, and of course we loved celebrating with T.
This girl is going to go far!! She is so talented, and so very smart! If she realized even half her greatness, she would be unstoppable! Someday I pray that she can see just how talented and special she is. I know that God has great plans for her...it has been obvious all along! I can't wait to watch her go out into this world, outside of our home, and show the world what she's made of!
