Mr. 16 graduated from Year 10 last week. The photo above was taken at The Nepean River just before his celebratory formal dinner. All of his classmates were out of their usual head-to-toe school uniform. I hardly recognised any of them. The girls looked a little older than usual, the boys a little younger; all looked beautiful, innocent.

Mr. 16. driving to the venue (with Learner's plates firmly attached to the car!):

Beneath the cool exterior he was cooking: it was 38 degrees celcius!:

Loving Aunty:

Proud Dad:

Doting Mum:

One of Mr 16's best mates ended the night singing That's Amore and all joined in with a sing-along:

I wish every one of these lovely people all the very best in their chosen path, be it a further two years of senior school study (as in Mr. 16's case) or a new start in their future career.

Bless you all, Class of 2009.

Shadowthorne: Thank you...but I won't tell him your lovely compliment for fear his head will swell!

Spencer L Casey: Thank you so much! You are very kind.

Congrats to the suited-booted (presumably) Mr 16. Sixteen is a wonderful age to be - life has to many roads to take at that age.

The Writing Instinct said...

Natalie: Thank you Nat! The girls were suitably dressed, however! And they all had an absolute ball and still showed up for graduation the next day!

Sucharita Sarkar: Thank you very much! YEs, he was suited AND booted...even in that heat...poor kid! Sixteen is possibly the best age of all!

That post sent shivers down my spine. It all happens so fasr. I remembered my 18-year-olds's school prom two summers ago. It is true they grow so so fast.
But what a handsome young man.

Congratulations! A very handsome and stylish (and clever I bet) young man. I wish my own son (who's just turned 16) will have the same successful results soon (His GCSEs exams are in May/June). All the best. Ciao. A.

What a proud day for the family, and doesn't Mr 16 look so grown up?

Lovely photos, really lovely to see such a happy family.

The Small Fabric Of My Life: Jane, your comment reminds of the often repeated 'where did the year go'? I cannot believe we are breathing down the neck of 2010...2010!

Suko: Thank you! I enjoyed sharing these pics.

septembermom: Thank you so much!

elena-lu: Hi there! It certainly was a beautiful day! Thanks!

lunarossa: Thank you so much for you sweet comment! I wish your son all the very best too!

Stephanie N.: Thank you, dear!

notSupermum: Thank you my dear! He certainly did look very grown up. Thankfully he shaved off a moustache he had grown for Movember!
