Congratulations to My Cousin Ron

My cousin Ron just graduated high school. He has studied and worked hard to achieve his diploma.  Ron has completed 12 years of schooling, and will be going on to college to study engineering. We all wish him the best there, and we will miss him very much.

The graduation started with many speeches by students, teachers, and the principal. They talked about the school year, and about all the students graduating. Finally, they got to announcing the diplomas. They went class by class, until finally it was Ron's class. He was second to last to get his diploma because his last name started with a Z.When they finally got to him, they shook his hand, as the principal gave him his diploma.  We all cheered as loud as could as he was called up. The ceremony went on and on, until every kid from each class received their diploma.

Ron is the middle child of his siblings. He has an older brother named Ben who graduated last year, and has finished his first year in college. Ron also has a younger sister, who will be graduating in three years. Ron is a very loving and intelligent boy. His favorite subject is math, and he is very good at that subject. He works very hard at everything he wants to achieve, and in the end, all the hard work pays off. He always plays with us, and is there when we need him. He is especially good at fixing our toys and putting things together.  I will miss him a lot when he starts college.

When the ceremony ended, we all went to a restaurant to celebrate. During dinner, we each took turns saying some nice speeches to Ron. We wished him 4 great years in college, and we hoped he would make many new friends. We also told him how much we would miss him when he goes away.

Here are some photos of Ron with the family doing some fun things together. He used to be a really small and skinny kid, and he grew into a tall, handsome and strong young man.
