A Day of Celebration!!!

What a wonderful day!!! The launching of our second young man into the adult world!! It was a wonderful graduation ceremony with the focus squarely on the purpose God has for each of these young people!! It was inspirational to listen to the talented students speak about the role God plays in their lives. This day gave me hope for the future!!

And after the Pomp and Circumstance hubby and I got to hand Daniel his diploma - which was an honor!!
(sorry for the fuzzy pic - it was the best my little camera could do)
At the reception (hoping my makeup was still on my face - there were some tears!!)
Then the party began - lots of friends, family and food!! We were blessed with fabulous weather (finally something over 65*!!) so picnic it was!!

Except for the teens who wanted to sit closer to the food :0)

For dessert I tried out the chocolate fountain that was given to us for Christmas - a festive way to end the day!! It was a hit!! Especially with the kids!! (and teens!!)
Messy but fun!!
All in all - a lovely, memorable, fabulous day spent celebrating the launch of a Godly young man into the adult world!! This is why we homeschooling parents keep doing what we are doing - passing on the things of God (with His help of course!!) Deuteronomy 6:4-9 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Congratulations to your graduate! What a fun time it looks like you all had! AND how great is have a chocolate fountain!! (It took you six months to try it out?? THAT's discipline!) I can relate to the "above 65*" comment...we had a very COLD day here! :)

I cannot believe that is Esther in the last picture! She looks like big girl. Where's lil' Essie?

And Ruthie looks like she has grown 3 inches since we last saw her :-0

And for Zac Efron (sorry Daniel - I will forever remember you with that name - but all his good traits of course....funny, real, loyal)

Oh what a wonderful time it looks like everyone had!
I spent some time catching up on all I have missed on your blog while playing with Boston. He gave Grammy his cold so I am up feeling yucky.
I have enjoyed catching up with your post. Your home and your flowers are lovely!
You have a wonderful Friday!
