Ellen's Graduation

This morning our baby, Ellen, graduated from School-to-Work. Her schooling has come to an end.  Ellen started at 2 years old and is now almost 21. That's a long time! 

We are so proud of her hard work! Enjoy some pictures of the special ceremony held at her school this morning....

We took Ellen to school this morning. Here she's posing with the sign along the walkway leading to the building. She's all ready for her big day!

Carson came to celebrate his Aunt Ellen :) he did really good through it all. 

Ellen walks to her seat. 

Waiting with the other students. 

Her teacher, Ms Harnick, introduces Ellen. Ellen was given an opportunity to comment about things she learned this year. She got a STW certificate and was presented her High School diploma from our school district. She did it!!

Way to go, Ellen! So proud of her!

Every student had a story board. So neat!

Ellen with some of her sisters. 

Ellen with Ms Harnick. She is an awesome teacher! She said Ellen lit up the room when she walked in. (Isn't that such a sweet thing to say?) She is gong to miss her. 

After the ceremony, we went to Wendy's for a quick lunch. 

Aunt Nancy knows what Ellen enjoys and brought it with her :)

PB cups!

I have more pictures in my camera which I will share another time. Tonight our whole family will go out to eat and celebrate Ellen's accomplishments. 
More pictures to come, of course :)

So hard to believe that she's all grown up!! She lit up the room when she came in - that is a very high compliment!! I love the picture of your girls together. Too bad Marcy was missing.
