CONGRATS! Class of 2009!

Where did the time go? The days seemed so long sometimes but the YEARS flew by!

This is Gabrielle's Graduation out on Sandy Hook. We have been getting soooo much rain, but thankfully, it stopped and the sun came out for a little while. This is near the tent where the graduation was held. It was an enormous flag and I thought it looked so beautiful swaying in the air.

This is the lighthouse out on Sandy Hook. This is the oldest still standing and operating navigational aid. The house is an octagon figure with eight equal sides, diameter of the base is 29 feet and at the top of the wall 15 feet. The building from the bottom to the top is 103 feet. Since the lighthouse was located in New Jersey, but own by New York. The two states argued over control. The US government but an end to the conflict in 1790 by making the Sandy Hook Station and other lighthouses a federal responsibility.

Here is Gabby getting her diploma.

I was so happy I put my camera and sports mode and was able to captured the throwing of the caps!

CONGRATS! Gabby. We love you and wish you the best in all that life has to offer you. My favorite quote for you:

"Don't cry because it is over! ... SMILE because it happened!"

Dr. Seuss
