This Saturday morning, sometime between 9am-10:30am our youngest of three children will walk across the graduation stage and receive his High School diploma. In the stands his mother, grandmothers, brother, sister, uncles, aunts, cousins, friends and I will be celebrating!!!!
Should we yell and cheer and go against what the requested ettiquette for the event is? "Please save all your applause until the end."
I totally understand.....Some of the celebration can be excessive and run over the next person's name causing their family to miss it.
I say, "Let em shout!" Whoever is reading the names....wait until the applause has died down before the next one. I mean really, how much longer would it take.......and does it matter to anyone if it does make the ceremony 10 minutes longer?
The cool thing about Chipper's hearing loss.......we know how to celebrate using sign language!!!!!
So you may not hear me....but I am going to be celebrating real loud!!!!!!
Proud of you Chipper! I know it's been really tough and hard at times.....but you did it! I Love you and can't wait to see what God continues to do through you!
