Graduation Day 2011
Last Saturday, with Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Grandpas and Grandmas present, D. and I watched our one and only walk across the stage to receive his High School diploma. Ours is a motivated boy with accolades, certificates, awards and pinnings to receive, accept and attend. The weekend was full of ceremony and celebration.
We were caught up in a whirlwind with little time to fully absorb the importance of the moment. In a blink the cake was crumbs, the family gone, the house returned to rights and our summer schedule in full swing.
High School graduations are a wonderful capstone to academic achievement and childhood, launching our children toward adulthood, located but a summer away.
I look forward to the upcoming college years but I will treasure the 12 school years that culminated in celebration this past weekend. I will place those memories along side the other treasures in my heart, to revisit and savor in the quiet moments. Luke 2:51
