Congratulations to the Class of 2019

26 05 2019

Across America families are celebrating the graduation of young people from schools and colleges. Commencement ceremonies for The Kamehameha Schools take place today, and my friends the parents of Punia Sonoda-Pale wisely selected last night to throw him a party. This is how it’s done in Hawaii!

One of the nice touches were the lighted table centerpieces handcrafted by Punia’s family and friends. So clever and creative! Here is the graduate decorated with flower lei.

I mua! Go forth!

Happy day

These are my photos from last night’s commencement exercises for the Punahou School Class of 2011. DH and I felt honored to watch our niece graduate among more than 400 other seniors.

This is Anna with her parents and brother, and with grandmothers from both sides of the family. It was her big night.

After the ceremony there was a human gridlock in the hall where we were to meet our graduate.

But we found her, clasping a “with honors” diploma proving that she really did it after 13 years!

P.S. Anna, look what I found on YouTube!
