Thursday 13

highschool wall
class of 2006

01. Tomorrow is graduation day!
02. Mr 18, our only son, will be wearing a suit and a tie.
03. There are no caps and gowns over here, at least not for a highschool graduation.
04. There will be a ceremony starting at 8 pm
05. Followed by a reception at the same school, planned to begin at around 10 pm
06. Remember this is Spain and the clocks tick a bit different!
07. Not only that: after the reception the highschool grads are heading to a nearby disco to celebrate.
08. All. Night.
09. Long.
10. It's the tradition.
11. Can't break an old tradition.
12. The disco is for the grads and their selected guests only (the fewer will be attending with a date). No other public and definitely no parents!. Except for one or two, they are all 18 years old and therefore of legal age according to European regulations.
13. Cheers! "We" 've made it!

  13. Congrats on his graduation. I can understand why parents aren't allowed, aside from most parents not being able to stay up that late (at least I couldn't and I'm not a parent) why would they want to.

  33. Busy morning for me can't believe it has taken me this long to get to your T13!

    When my son graduated last year there were so many mixed feelings. I was glad it was over, yet worried about the next phase in his life! So far he seems to be good. But they grow up too fast!

    Glad he has a fun place to go! They all need that on graduation night, mine went bowling!!

    As for the WW botton feel free to copy and use!
