woods high school, class of 2022!

伍兹学校的22届学生和他们的舞会舞伴。

WELL.

The last month has been a whirlwind in these parts, but as of yesterday,Alex is now officially a graduate of Woods High School, the secondary school part ofSchool of the Woods从幼儿园到12年级的蒙台梭利课程就在休斯顿!Alex从二年级开始就在这所学校上学,Marcus和我经常说让她来这所学校读书是我们做过的最好的育儿决定。她的班级只有21名学生,每一年他们都变得更加亲密,互相照顾,我从来没有见过这样的一群孩子。学术研究也很严谨:例如,作为期末项目,每个学生要花一年的时间,根据自己选择的主题写论文,然后做口头报告。(Alex’s was entitled,“Posters for the People: How Graphic Design Impacts Activism and Social Justice你可以想象,对于一个即将去平面设计学校学习的激进分子来说,这是一个非常棒的话题!)

过去几周都是体育宴会、高级宴会、毕业典礼,现在都正式结束了。以下是一些精彩的照片。

Alex had a few friends over to get ready for prom. Canapés and sparkling cider flowed.

These young women, yo. They’re going to change the word for the better, watch.

The fact that the Starbucks logo is bigger than the photo of Marcus and me is actually not that surprising.

亚历克斯和她的美国手语老师威尔海特先生在一起。关于亚历克斯戴的花的说明:我一直很喜欢把文化试金石作为毕业典礼标志的一部分,比如夏威夷的花环或印度的万寿菊花环。我在网上找了一个热带的花环,选了这个,用假鸡蛋花(鸡蛋花)做的。鸡蛋花原产于加勒比海、墨西哥和南美洲,我点它是为了向她的加勒比、墨西哥和哥伦比亚血统致敬。我不知道她会不会穿,但我想既然她打算把宿舍弄成粉色,如果她不穿,至少可以把它当作宿舍的装饰品。我很感动,她戴着它。

And now that all the fanfare is over, we’re settling in for some good rest and concentrated family time, to celebrate each other. Big changes are ahead for the three of us — and we’re allsoexcited about what’s to come.

Song: Tongue-tied by Grouplove. Alex played this on her stereo as she drove away from school for the last time.
