Haley's Graduation

On Thursday the boys and I went to Haley's sixth grade graduation. Haley goes to our home church and is my honorary niece - I have no nieces in the area and she has no aunts in the area. But we have each other in that department.

She is an exceptional student. Straight A's every quarter, her soccer team went to Nationals, and she's very pretty - well rounded girl. On top of the graduation ceremony, the principle and teachers chose one girl and one boy as Student of the Year. This student exemplified the values of the school: compassion, honesty, respect, responsibility, self-discipline, perseverance, giving. She won it! It was a very proud moment for her parents, her honorary aunt and honorary grandparents (Nana and Soso).
