For the ceremony, We just invited close family...I shared something, gave Nate-the-Graduate his diploma, he shared something, then his dad shared and challenged him. After that we prayed for him. It wasn't very long, but we wanted it to feel official and personalized.
I talked to someone about helping me develop a party theme, but they suggested how easy it is just to do a basic "grad" theme with school colors etc. I was thinking..."We haven't done school the 'normal' way yet, why start now?"
