I know it has been quiet around her the last few days.  My son graduated on Saturday from high school!  After many hears of homeschooling we made the decision to have him go to a private school for high school.  It was not always "fun" but we all made it through. 

We had a large party on Saturday afternoon.  My tips:  Dollar store shopping!  They had plates, napkins, cups and decorations all for $1 each!  I tried to be frugal on the food as well.  We served around $40 for around $60.  We had someone bring dessert as well.  It was amazing how many people wanted to help, so I would definitely suggest letting people help you.  It makes them feel useful.  Do you have any party tips?
