Parker graduated from Montgomery Academy Wednesday June 29, 2011. Karen and I attended with Ed, Meredith, and Maggie.
It was quite personal since there are only twelve graduates. Special gifts were awarded to each with amusing commentary concerning some quirk or talent.
It was especially nice to meet some of Parker’s school friends and some of his teachers. Unfortunately, I only captured a name here or there. Apologies.
Here are a few photos.

Grandson Noah Gilstrap graduated into the Middle School at Trinity in NYC.
A telling point for me was the symbolic transition from the Lower School environment in which the students gave hugs to the Headmistress as they came up on the stage and crossed to greet the Headmistress of the Middle School with a handshake.
