My youngest son "graduated" from Kindergarten this year ~ I can't believe how fast they really do grow up. So for my graduation card I chose Johnny and colored him to look like Trevor. To personalize this even more, I made the background paper using the school logo and of course the school colors. Brilliant Blue from SU is the school color for my kids, and it will be all through high school, so I am really going to miss this one ~ I don't know why they had to retire it. If you know of a good substitute, please let me know.
