Last Saturday, June 4, 2011, was graduation day for Austen and all his classmates. Ken took the first photo just outside their house: Parker in ROTC uniform, Austen, Anne, Ed, and Kira in front. All are ready to head out to Reliant Stadium for the commencement ceremonies.
The color guard is ready, and the graduates are ready to start their processional. Parker is the fifth in the color guard.
After the pledge and anthem, the color guard exits.
Austen was in the second row, the grads who have stood and are preparing to wind their way to the stage to receive their diplomas.
He's closer ... see him? The tallest one among those getting closer to the stage!
He's the tall one at the right, waiting for his name to be called.
After receiving his diploma, he poses nicely!
After the hat toss, all the grads are eager to exit, but of course they have to go out in reverse order from the way they came in! Austen is in the center of this photo. Can you find him?
Ahhh, here he is, diploma in hand!
Posing nicely with his brother and sister, once we were all outside.
And a couple of videos! First, the processional ...
