My baby graduates and this 52yr old stayed up ALL NIGHT LONG!

I guess since I was the one with the camera no one got a picture of ME hugging my baby. But that's ok cause I know I did.

I have to say that I did enjoy Project Graduation. Especially since my only duties were to be the parent at the mechanical bull. It proved to be quite comical.

Especially when they fell. I had one boy ask me who had stayed on longer. I told him that all of the girls had beat the boys. Of course that wasn't true but it was fun. He knew I was kidding. Every time I would see him throughout the night I teased him!

Here is Nicki, a good friend of Steph's. I think she rode it about 50 times and was quite sore the next day!

That is one of Steph's best friends Brandy. She was the very first friend Steph made when she started at Graves Middle School. Steph said she asked her if she wanted some gum on the bus the first day. Isn't that sweet?

It was so funny for me to watch the boys trying to impress the ladies!

Yes, that is probably a good idea. For the record, Steph took the last 3 photos!

I don't know who this is but can anyone say Justin Beaver? I think it's cute though.

The night ended with their version of Let's Make a Deal. Remember how Monty Hall used to offer people money for odd things they might have? That is what they did. The funniest one was when the officer asked for anyone who had an unpaid traffic violation. You should have seen the boys running down. I bet there were 8 of them!

The day started on a bad note. Steph's boyfriend just broke up with her, Bill was having major surgery with only a 30% chance of survival but it ended on a wonderful note. I don't think there is anything more I could have asked for.

This is a great idea to have someplace for the grads to go rather to go out drinking with friends.

Yes Syd. All of the schools around here have Project Graduation. The community donates tons of money and items which are given away at random timed during the night. It is $10 to get in but if you stay all night you get $20 back. One girl won $500, there was a 19" flatscreen TV given away, several GPS' not to mention $50, $100 and so on again at random times.

I agree with Syd. What a great way to spend graduation night.

He broke up with her on graduation???! What a turd! We've had boyfriend drama at our house this week too, but not that bad. It sure brings back some memories.

Congrats to Steph on graduation. Let the napping begin!! Today's the first day my teenager gets to sleep in. She probably won't rise until noon.
