Ollie: Hope of America

 I can't believe that my little man Oliver graduated from elementary school.
7th grade HERE HE COMES!
Ollie was awarded the prestigious "Hope of America" award
for being an outstanding boy.
He deserves this.  I can't even begin to share the pride I have for this little man.  
He has a very bright future and I am so honored to be his mother and watch him
grow to become a wonderful man,
 (except I don't ever want his voice to change!).

The graduation ends with the traditional Maypole dance.
The Maypole has been apart of the 6th grade graduation ceremony
for years and years.  I danced it back in 1987.
I took photos of Oliver with some of his cute friends and best buddies.
(We missed you William Bingham!).


When Claire and Jane graduated elementary school,  
Mr. Nielson and I gave the girls a watch which we had engraved on the inside.
Since Oliver already has a watch,
we decided to give him a silver tie clip which we had engraved.

I mean, seriously, isn't he the cutest boy you've ever seen?
