Weber High School Graduation

The time has finally arrived.  Weber High School graduation.
Courtney is checking herself out on the jumbo-tron.  The entire proceedings
were filmed and shown on the jumbo-tron in the Dee Events Center.
The wonderful thing about that, Chris was able to pick up the 
live feed from Weber State and watch the entire event.  Everything
we saw, he saw.
The choir began the program with a song, sing Courtney,
sing.  Sing your heart out, one last time.
I took these pictures with my camera from a distance,
so the quality leaves a bit to be desired.  But I was so thrilled
to have been there, in person.
Another song, it was so wonderful to hear the choir sing,
and of course they sing all of those sad "goodbye" songs.
The way they do the procession is fascinating.  They march the entire
(huge) class in, to the tune of "Pomp and Circumstance".  When
they are all in, they are lined up like so.  Rows of red, girls
and rows of black, boys, it looked amazing.
Courtney and Heather took these pictures outside
before the graduation started and before the class
came in through the tunnel.
Here is Courtney and Melissa,
Courtney and Heidi,
and this is Courtney, Courtney, Heidi and Kellie.
Rudi and Courtney, together one last time as
classmates.  They look so grown up.
See, Courtney's on the jumbo-tron, smile Courtney smile.
"isn't she lovely"
The choir, along with Courtney, are heading to the choir seats,
back behind the stage.
Oh no, that's not where she's supposed to sit, we are sitting on the
opposite side.
By the time she was settled and everyone was in their
place, she was on the very end, closest to us.
Let the proceedings begin.
Weber Warriors!
"How does it feel to be a Warrior?"
Courtney's turn, she was one of the last to graduate because they have
the choir come down from their seats last.
Because of the filming that they did, each graduate was shown on the
jumbo-tron when they received their diploma.  When it was Courtney's
turn she accepted her diploma and faced the camera and said,
"Hi, Dad"!  (He saw it on the live feed)
And when it's all said and done,
the girls are all on one side, and the boys are all on the other.
Again, so amazingly cool.
Here are all the girls with their little fake diplomas.
Courtney's on the back row, in the middle.
Heather and Brad came to support,
and Grandma Murray, she hasn't missed a graduation of any
of her grandchildren, bless her heart.
Tyler and Heather, thanks for coming and standing beside 
your little sis!
Give your mom a hug!
Courtney and Grandma Murray
Three generations, and all babies,  we were
all born the babies of our families.  Mom's the
baby, I'm her baby and Courtney's my baby.
Brad, Courtney and Heather
Brad and Heather, Courtney, Heather and Tyler.
(Heather's going to a Zumba clinic, that's why she's dressed up)
Add Mom and we are all a happy family.
Tyler, baby sis and Heather
"W" stands for Weber
Oh my goodness, all our stuff!
My graduation gift to Courtney, didn't have time to wrap it,
I hope she doesn't mind.
I think she likes it, it's a graduation bear,
complete with cap and gown,
and embroidered with her name, graduation date
and Weber High School.  I thought it was cute.
I also had her senior pictures enlarged, printed and
put in red photo albums.
Congratulations baby girl, we love you sooo much
and are very, very proud of all you've accomplished.
