What a week!! Katie

~
Wow, what a week. As it is every year at the end of the school year. Finishing up, we got it all done!! We were doing the "happy dance" last night as Katie graduated from High School; her journey has been hard, each grade a victory. Some kids go through school with no effort, some excel and some fight everyday to make it. We so proud of you Katie!!

Sassy!

Friends

So Happy!!!

Yea!! You did it!!

Christi (mom), Katie and Donny (dad) 

Some of the sisters!

Katie & Cristin all grown up

It is very traditional to wear a flower lei at graduation, here they take it even further, we have a large Polynesian influence, and with my son in law being Tongan, Tua's Aunt fashioned these amazing candy leis for Katie. They really only want the kids to wear one lei at graduation but after they showered with leis. Some are made out of money, candy and treats, some will get so many you can hardly see their face.
