My niece, Skye just graduated from 8th grade...I know this is an odd concept to many of you out there who don't live in school districts that do 8th grade graduations...but it is set up exactly like a high school graduation. Student speakers, caps and gowns a dance afterward, the works.
I am hoping to learn a lot about what Skye goes through in high school to prepare me for my own girls to enter high school...there is already so much boy craze (yikes I'm not ready for that) and girl drama..."she made out with my boyfriend" and "she's my friend, no she's my friend, blah blah blah" etc.
However my niece is an awesome girl and has a good head on her shoulders and I guess this is the time that you hope she uses it...lol
My girls are spitting images of my niece...she is such a beautiful girl...which is also such a major concern.
