Ireland's 5th Grade Graduation!!

Ireland graduated from elementary on June 2nd-
she is now a big time middle schooler-
she is very ready for the change,
I, on the other hand, am not sure that I'm ready ;)
It was a really nice ceremony- each student
did a power point page for themselves that
listed what their favorite memory of school was,
who inspired them, what college they want to go to
and what they want to be when they grow up-
Ireland's favorite memory was Sky Ranch Camp,
she said her parents are her inspiration (so sweet),
she wants to attend the University of Texas...
(sorry to all of my Utah and BYU fans)-
and she wants to be an architect.
All of her teachers, principals and counselor
told me that Ireland will succeed at
whatever she does in life.
We are so proud of her!!

In celebration for her graduation,
we let her pick where to go for dinner-
she chose Kobe, a Japanese restaurant.
It was a great way to end a great night.
Congratulations Ireland!!
We love you!!
