Exciting Times


Emily got her cap and gown last night at the monthly graduation meeting, and she also picked up her announcements.  We are now two months until graduation.  She is graduating a year early - having worked hard to earn the required credits.

This week is the graduation banquet for the graduates and their parents and other family members.  We are taking my parents as well. We are sitting at a table for 10 and the other five at our table are the folk from Hospitality Lane.  They are bringing the grandma's in their family.  We are looking forward to a fun night together.

Today we will likely be shopping for a new dress.  I believe that I will take her to lunch as well.  I love having this time with her.

She is a joy to us, a gift from the Lord.  I am humbled and thankful.

  3. Congratulations to Emily! My oldest daughter is graduating this year too. It's so hard to believe. She was just a toddler when I started homeschooling her older brothers!
    Blessings,
