The Graduate: It's A Done Deal

Nothing like your child's high school graduation ending up on a national morning news show...but I'll get to that in a minute.

The Graduate's final week of high school was wonderful.

On Saturday, we gathered family and friends at our home to celebrate The Graduate's graduation, with a menu that consisted of his favorites: hot dogs, tacos and pizza. He wanted sushi, but there ain't too many sushi chefs hanging 'round these parts.

On Sunday, we looked on as our pastor presented him a new Bible, as his Old Reliable baby picture slid by on the big screen.

On Tuesday, we watched him walk across the stage at the Senior awards night to accept awards and scholarships he worked really hard to achieve.

On Wednesday, we sat with other parents and family at Baccalaureate, spending time with special teachers that have meant so much to our family.

On Friday, we sweated in the high school's football stands, eagerly waiting for his name to be called. It was wonderful, watching him walk across the stage to receive his diploma. The ceremony was very special and memorable.

We had finally reached the moment we all had been waiting for...and then this happened...

Thankfully no was seriously hurt. That night, we started seeing posts on Facebook, of different videos of the fireworks. And then a few days later, it was everywhere. There was little ol' Baker County on Good Morning America and Fox News, showing video of our high school graduation.

Memorable to say the least.

How fun!! And congratulations. Seems we're walking similar paths right now. What a whirlwind those last few weeks of high school were, but so very special.

Again, congratulations!
