She Did It!

Katie at graduation

Our honors grad

For once, we got pictures posted pretty quickly. Here are scenes from Katie’s Eastview High School graduation tonight, at which I was able to hand her her diploma. I’m still coming down off the high. After I handed her the diploma, we fist bumped, then hugged. I held it together better than I expected — no real tears. Katie helped by making funny faces at me during the ceremony from her seat in the audience.

The rest of the photos are included in the slideshow below. Or click here to go to our Flickr feed and look at all of the sets.

Graduation Night is Here!

Class of 2010

Tonight is Katie’s big night, graduating with the Class of 2010 at Eastview High School! I can’t believe this day is here already. We’ll be going out to dinner with my dad and stepmom, then over to the ceremony. I get to hand Katie her diploma and speak on behalf of the School Board at the ceremony. I am very honored. Laurie has spent the past 36 hours at the school decorating for the all-night senior party. We haven’t seen much of her these past couple of days. She designed all of the signs and some of the cooler decorations you’ll see in the slideshow below. [SPOILER ALERT: SENIORS, DO NOT LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS UNTIL AFTER THE PARTY]

If you can’t attend the ceremony tonight (rain is chasing us indoors, so there is limited seating), you can watch it live here at 7 p.m. Central Time.

Here are some photos of Katie, Breanna, Kayla and Brett as they get ready to head to the 2010 Eastview High School prom at the International Market Square in Minneapolis on May 29.

Katie got her cap and gown the other day, so we took the opportunity to snap a couple of pictures (check out the graduation photo set on Flickr here. We’ll be adding to it, so check back often). She got her Honors sash yesterday — we’ll have to snap some new photos with that on soon. Graduation for the Class of 2010 at Eastview High School is June 5. If you can’t be there, you can watch it live online at

Our Money Headin’ to Bemidji

Katie and BSU check

Mo money, mo money, mo money...

This is Katie holding the first of many checks we will be sending to Bemidji State University over the next four years. This one reserves her spot in the freshman class this fall, where she plans to study elementary education. Very exciting times and we couldn’t be prouder. Katie will be a wonderful teacher.

Next step on our college odyssey is advisee and parent weekend at BSU. We’ll be heading up nort’ in a few weeks for parent orientation and a chance for Katie to meet her academic advisor and scope out her new campus. We’ll be posting pix and blogging from the road, so keep an eye out.

Note the special senior class party T-shirt Katie is sporting. Laurie designed the logo for the Eastview High parents who are planning the post-graduation all-night party. Laurie has been very active on the decoration committee with Jeni Terzich, our next-door neighbor.
