Tonight at church we celebrated our graduating seniors
Here they are with the youth pastor

Each family decorated a table that represented their grad's life
I had a rolling slide show on my Mac and different things that represented Jason's accomplishments

After dinner, they brought the grads up on the stage and introduced each one and told what their plans were. Then the mic was open which allowed people to tell them something encouraging, a funny story about them, how much they have meant to them, etc.

It was a beautiful night!!!
