Holy Cross Graduation--2012 Version

I'm feeling lonely....no one ever leaves any comments anymore.  In fact, I am starting to think only my parents check out this blog.
Please leave a comment it you happen upon this post, and tell us where you live....my homeschoolers are going to map the visitors...of course, if only Grandma and Grandpa see this, we, in fact, know where you live.
 The choir is ready---Laura
 The alter boys are ready--Mark is on the right
 The graduate (and valedictorian) is ready--although looking pretty nervous--Amy
 The music was heavenly
 Mrs. Maciag congratulates Amy
 Amy--the graduate....preparing to give the valedictorian address
 Father O'Conner did a fabulous job.
His sermon during Mass was inspiring for everyone present.
 Gorgeous Amy and Becky

 A well deserved hug from dad
 Dad, Mom and Amy
 Steve and Amy--What a handsome couple they make

I try and check in once a week or so, but with a 1 year old, don't always get time to comment. We're from NY. What a neat idea to have the kids track where readers are from. WE're just starting out this year with my now 4th grader coming home for school to begin with, but I'll have to remember this for when we study the US!

I usually read your blog. :) Your kids can mark the San Jose (ish) are on California. I have used some of your craft ideas and science ideas as well. You have a beautiful family.

I have a pretty low traffic blog, but I decided long ago to share anyway. I figure when I share "homeschoolish" stuff that if someone is suppose to read it, they'll find me. And when I share family stuff, it is just as much a record for myself as anything.

I think when I first stumbled across your blog, it caught my eye because you have a larger family than I do in a smaller (or maybe same size) house. Not something I come across very often!

You should keep up the good work!!

You know where I live! I read you all the time. You have some of my favorite kids in the world living in your little house.
Congratulations Amy. I have watched you grow from a little baby to the lovely young woman that you are today. Whatever you do in life and wherever you go the world will be a better place for having known you.
