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
Congratulations L!
