Here at the Dad on Bored household, we’ve got an Animal Crossing islander who’s preparing to graduate. As we wait for details, it’s the best she can do.
Her school doesn’t have any concrete plans quite yet – and who can blame them? – but they are targeting a mid-to late July graduation. In the meantime, we’ve started a rather protracted recognition of the rite of passage.
(If you want to get a similar lawn sign for your own graduate, you can customize it and order it here.)
In the meantime, however, we’ll likely check out the Life is Good commencement.
“Recently, when we learned that the class of 2020 would be separated from each other for their final semesters, graduation ceremonies and well-deserved parties, we decided maybe they could use a few new friends, a few good laughs, some uplifting, artistic inspiration,” Bert Jacobs said. “This unique, homemade commencement celebration is for you class of 2020. After all, you are ‘virtually the The Greatest Class of All Time!”
