It was a beautiful day! Muggy and warm, but the sun was shinning. We arrived in downtown Rochester at 7:30 am. Katrina and the rest of the graduates were treated to a delightful breakfast.
After that was some free time. We used that time to browse the vendors in the curriculum hall. This place can be very overwhelming! There is so much in there for you to look at. I personally like it because I can really take the time and look at a curriculum. So many times in our years of homeschooling I have purchased something just to find it really didn't work for us.
After the free time we had to report for graduation rehearsal. This was actually a lot of fun. We met a lot of parents.
There was a young man who was graduating yesterday. His dad was serving in the Army and could not be there. The homeschool organization arranged a Skype with him to he could still be a part of the day. The son and wife had no idea it was going to happen. The Sargent got a standing ovation from the crowd and a huge thanks for his service to our country.
I'm going to close this post with a few of my favorite buildings in downtown Rochester.
