High School Graduation Party {Class of 2021}

by | Oct 25, 2021 | Graduation, High School, Kolbe Academy, Precious Moments: 03 | 6 comments

At the end of August, just before our three oldest headed off to college, we hosted a graduation and 18th birthday party for our daughter.  She’s our third to graduate Magna Cum Laude from Kolbe Academy. Three down…  “Only” six more to go! We ended up having right around 150 family and friends show up to join us to celebrate with a back yard barbecue and games.  Even my parents, sister and newest little niece were able to make the drive up from Oregon! It was such a fun evening!

.: Graduation Cap Cupcakes :. 

I made a more girly version of the Graduation Cap Cupcakes we made for her brothers! 

.: Graduation Candy Buffet :. 

I also reused the signs Graduation Candy Buffet Signs from the boys’ party, but included more pink here too to coordinate with the party colors. I shared them as a free printable a couple years ago if anyone would like to use them as well. 

.: Graduation & Birthday Cakes :. 

.: More Decorations :. 

For decorations I printed out her annual End of Year Interviews from over the years and pinned them to some string lights. It was so cute to see all the little girls giggling over them!

.: More Pictures from the Party :. 




We pulled out some of the same games from our previous party including Kan Jam, Spikeball, Cornhole and Ping Pong. I meant to bring out BattleChip but completely forgot!

May God bless and protect our newest college student!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
