6th Grade Graduation


Last night we presented ourselves as "Godparents" for America. She is one of our youth in Arrayanes who has been learning the guitar. She graduated from the 6th grade last night. This is a familiar tradition all over Mexico. The student will ask someone special in their life to walk with them to receive their diploma. They have organized dances, recite poems, dramas, etc. In the end, they have a public dance and a meal. Posted by Picasa

  1. Happy 4th of July... even though you're probably not celebrating in the streets :-)

    We've been home today, just enjoying family... miss you guys.

  2. Thanks, Jeff...we didn't celebrate it, in fact, it crossed my mind that it was Independance Day and that's all. We spent the day in Tepic shopping.
