Congratulations PRESTON!!~~

On May 24th 2012...
My BABY brother Preston Bryan Andersen Graduated from High School!!
And the kids and I went to celebrate this happy day!!
 We got to the stadium early so we would not miss anything... 
Landon colored, Hailey scooted her way between Grandma and Grandpa under the umbrella
 and Crystal and Sharon posed for my picture taking pleasure!
 
Natomas High School Class of 2012! Preston Graduated Cum Laude! (Graduation with honors cum laude requirements vary. Cum laude grade point average estimates: gpa for cum laude - 3.5 to 3.7; gpa for magna cum laude - 3.8 to 3.9; gpa for summa cum laude - 4.0+. ~ After his graduation Preston said to me "I TRIED to be as cool as you and graduate Magna Cum Laude," I let him know not everyone can be as cool as his BIG sister!! ha ha  SO... YES... close your mouth... it is not that crazy that I got a 3.98GPA in High School shesh! NERD ALERT!)
 Here is the whole family in attendance...
 Yes the sun was out, but the wind was also in full force so it was not a bad day for a graduation at all!!
 Grandma gave Hailey these earrings before we left for the graduation. 
This is her "PIMP look" with the super star earrings on! She LOVES them!!
 And of course we had to have snacks and things for the kids to do... Landon enjoyed running around, coloring and of course the POPCORN!!
 While we were getting the popcorn we were able to see Preston walk out.
SO PROUD!
 Yes... Landon likes to play with my purse...
and YES... he would find a tampon and decide it was a sword...
 no joke...
just ask the people that were sitting in front of us that got STABBED with it...
 So we quickly grabbed little man and tried to entertain him with picture taking...
 This is Hailey protesting smiling for the camera for picture taking time...
 It was a great graduation! They had 4 people reading the kids names, and it was very organized and ran as smoothly as possible! Instead of throwing their caps up, the kids threw flowers!! I liked that part!
Then they walked off...
 And while we searched for Preston the kids ran around the track! LOL!
 We may have made Preston a few candy Lei's to celebrate...
The kids were so happy to see Uncle Preston at the end...
 Mom and Dad with the LAST Andersen Graduate at Natomas High School...
 And Preston with his Sisters (minus Nicole and Tiffany)
 ~ did you notice I am on my TIP TOES and still super short??
Landon stole one of Preston's lei's for himself... 
So Long Natomas High...
The Andersen's are DONE here!!
CONGRATULATIONS PRESTON!!
The Bird Family is SOOOOO Proud of YOU!
Dunnn Dun Dun DUNNN DUNNN 
DUn Dun DUn DUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNN....
