Jessica graduated from Litte Red today and is moving up to Elizabeth Irwin.
The "moving up" ceremony was great and very emotional. Many of these kids have been together for nine years.
The best part was the school let the kids program the ceremony.
There were speeches (Jessica and Thea did one). There were songs. There were videos. And there were lots of tears.
The final part of the ceremony is where the kids walk out the door of the old Little Red building onto Bleecker Street and get their certificate.
It was a special moment and I loved it.
