We picked the best seats, Sean and all his friends walked right next to us. We managed to snag a few pictures. He had a graduating class of 800 something I believe, only a few more than Brennan who graduated with a whole 69 students!! The ceremony was great. All the speeches given were great and many talked about football and especially on the fact that they beat Redlands High (my Alma mater) with only 2 seconds on the clock. Best part is that Sean was the holder so he was on the field for that last attempt play!! That video is in another blog from earlier in the year.. The class of 2011 is the first in REV history to keep the smudge pot at REV - all 4 years Sean was a wildcat they beat the RHS!! They also mentioned the amazing season that the women's water polo team had. Needless to say KK gave a little cheer for it!!
Then we got to the part about actually calling the students names... We waited and waited and finally Sean made the quick walk across the stage and officially became a high school graduate. The ceremony ended with a wonderful show of fire works.
Guess he is my little brother only in age...
Always soooo cool!!!
After graduation we headed home for some celebrating with cake and ice cream of course. Mom had gotten a huge cookie to heat up in the oven then we added some ice cream.. The day could not have gotten any better!!

So Congratulations Sean you are a high school graduate for over a month now. It has been a wonderful journey with you and I have enjoyed being able to go back to high school football games for a specific reason. To watch you kick butt!! You always have me laughing and you tell the best stories. Remember don't ever lose your imitations of the gardener and others... I look forward to coming out to visit you at Northern Arizona. When I am invited!!!
