Several weeks ago, I asked everyone to send me pics of them and Taco Bell, as a virtual graduation party for Jack. I am very thankful to those that participated! It was fun to receive these and I am excited for Jack to get to see them for the first time in this post!!
So without further ado.....showing the love from Knoxville to Los Angeles
THE PARTY IS OVER.....
Jack has left the bell.......until he gets hungry again
Last night, I was at a graduation where I knew a few people, but not many. At the reception, I, as usual, found a comfortable area to stand. I was out of the way, could be close to the few people I knew, but not up in their conversation with the other parents of the graduates, and I could observe the behaviors of all in the room (a creepy yet fascinating hobby of mine).
As I was talking to a good friend, a lady pops up and is visibly excited, as if she had seen someone famous. My brain and ears caught up with my eyes and I heard her saying. "Oh my gosh! It's you! I read your stuff on Facebook. You are ClassicMAZ!"
I was the celebrity sighting.
I felt my face redden but I was amused and flattered. I enjoyed meeting her and then I turned away as some of the kids had gathered at the front of the room to sing to the graduates. I heard the lady I just met talking to my friend, behind me.
"oh. I want a picture! I am going to try to sneak a selfie." I thought she was talking about trying to sneak a pic of her graduate daughter. I turned to see what she was talking about and her back was turned to me as she fumbled with her phone. I heard her excitedly say, "I'm going to sneak a selfie." My friend grinned at me. I realized She was trying to sneak a selfie with ME!
This was all very amusing to me. I snuck my head very close behind her.....and 'photo bombed' her secret selfie.
It was a pleasure to meet you, Terri White! You made my night. You are no longer a secret follower, we are friends.
but my friends will tell you, I am not as fun, happy and outgoing in real life, as I seem to be on social media.
Strangers, followers, friends and family: you have 9 days to get your #ziggy2016 Taco Bell pictures to me!!! -text, or @classicmaz fb/Instagram/Twitter
Tonight was a special time to honor Jack as he has completed mandatory education and is now free to begin the real education as he masters lessons and knowledge that will define his character and future.
After dinner, we drove by his new home- the newest dorm on campus. gotigersgo
Tonight did not consist of gowns, tassled hats, or speeches. It may even feel like a normal night of the week, but I hope Jack feels loved, honored and appreciated.
At the end of the night, the school administration and staff celebrated losing half their student body.....
I am proud of Jack's hard work, and for putting up with my decision to homeschool him.
HAPPY GRADUATION JACK! 2016
Taco Bell pics are still wanted!! You have 11 days left!
