T and Jasmine then commenced to play along to a rock and roll song. I have it on video, and will post if I ever can upload the thing. Unfortunately for T, she suffered a wardrobe malfunction. Toward the end of the song, one of her shoes came off. She was crushed. She had planned to slide across the stage on her knees as a grand finale, and could not do it b/c she lost her shoe and the music stopped. She pouted for the rest of the show. Luckily, hers was the last song before they handed out the diplomas.

Later, they called her name and she received her diploma from the principal, Dr. Morales and the priest, Father Lopez. What was nice was that they would pose so that each family could get pictures. They're clearly old hands at this graduation stuff.
After a quick picture with Taylor's beloved teacher Mrs. Maranges, the ceremony was over. Boy, will we miss her. She was just the best teacher a kid could have.
Finally, all that was left to do was pose for the obligatory picture with mom, and T's first official year of school is at an end.

She can't wait to go to summer camp!

A great beginning for wonderful things to come.
Congratulations T - your Mom too. You both can be very proud. xox

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
