Flashback Friday Prompt #10

Okay, I'm an idiot. I just realized this didn't post. Sigh. Hope I haven't run everyone off!

For those of us in Texas, school is winding down. My kids are done at the end of next week, and some districts go through the end of the following week. I feel for those of you in the north who don't get out until the middle of June or later!

Graduation announcements are starting to arrive in mailboxes. It sobers me to realize my boy has just one more year. I feel like my kids should be in elementary school, not barreling through high school!

Thinking of his upcoming senior year brings back lots of memories of my own! So here is the Flashback Friday prompt for this week:

Tell about your senior year in high school. Were there any special traditions such as getting a senior ring? Were there lots of activities and parties as you neared graduation? Were you in any extra-curricular activities that had traditional "rites of passage" or "passing the baton" too the next class? Were awards given out - either serious or fun? Did you send out graduation announcements? Did your school have a Baccalaureate Service in addition to the graduation ceremony? If you attended church, did your church recognize/honor Seniors in any way? Did you keep your tassel - did you hang it from the mirror of your car or do something else special with it? What sorts of things did you get for graduation gifts? Was it a tradition to display the gifts in your home?

Remember, the questions are just a springboard of ideas. You may answer them or just use them to get you started.

Post your flashback on your blog tomorrow and then come back here to link up!

Linda, I can't participate in this weeks Flashback, since I haven't graduated yet (okay, so I'm young)! But I can't wait to read everyone's answers!
