June 3 - Axels graduation

My son Axel graduated from high school, an event heavely laden with Swedish traditions. Parents, friends and relatives assemble outside of the main school building holding a sign with a picture of the graduate as a child.

The graduates then rush out of the school building screaming and singing wearing white graduation hats.

A lot more of singing and screaming goes on before a reception is held and finaly a graduation ball.

It's a riot.
