Be true to your school...


Sassy attends a rather large high school here in this quaint college town in Oregon. There are approximately 754 young men and women graduating with her next weekend.

Last week she came home and as soon as she walked in the door she threw down her backpack and shouted (cause that's how we communicate in this house), "Mom! I am on the front of the yearbook!"

"The front? Like the front page?"

"No - the cover."

I thought for a moment, and replied, "The COVER page? Like the first page?"

"NO! THE COVER. THE. HARD. FRONT. COVER. Oh My God. How did you EVER become a teacher?"


And then she pulled it out of her backpack, flung it on the table, and ran away shaking her head.



She was right. The HUGE fifty pound yearbook on the table? Her pic is SMACK on the front cover.



And yes, in case you were wondering, it DID bring a tear to my eye. Or two.

Congratulations! What an honor for your daughter and for you! Hope the weather is Oregon stays nice for graduation!

I talked to my granddaughter, Madisyn, yesterday. It was after her last day of school. She was crying because she will miss her teacher! They were already texting! Watch out second grade!

It was a close up crowd scene at a basketball game- kids in the stands cheering- and she is with four of her friends. it is AWESOME.


and just dumb luck. She doesn't know anyone on yearbook committee.

This is super! And I know how proud you're feeling.

When my son started at his high school, they were refurbishing. We arrived one morning to find a huge photo-board (with some educationally inspiring words) had been erected in the foyer for the students to read every day. And my son was front-centre, taking up most of the photo.

Every time I visit,even three years later,I get a little thrill...

I am the yearbook advisor for my school. And it is stories like this I LOVE! Reminds me of just how important that angst filled yearlong stressful class really is! Congrats to Sassy!

We parents are so dumb. It's a wonder our children survive.

CatLadyLarew said...

How cool is that? Yay, Sassy! (Too bad about her idiot teacher mom, though. Ha!)

CaneWife said...

That's awesome!

Way to go, Sassy!s

I didn't even know they still did yearbooks. In case you were looking for someone you could point to as dumber than you are...

I was on yearbook in high school...back in the old days when cut and paste literally meant cut and paste. What do the kids do now, just move some photos around on the computer? Pshaw!

Liss said...

How funny. Oh, in about 5 years she'll be proud of that and you'll be saying 'How did I become a teacher...? By choosing my moments!'

You must be so proud! xx

I love what she's done with her hair recently, and the complexition is really clearing up.
