Graduations Galore

Graduation came for Joshua this past Friday night.  This was also my first graduation as a teacher at our high school which is the reason for the robe.  I managed to do my job as a faculty member and as a mom without shedding one tear.

 We celebrated Joshua's graduation as a family.  Then we headed to the house with grandparents to enjoy a BBQ dinner on our front porch.  We picked up a few extra friends along  the way to eat dinner with us.

Today I took a day off from being teacher and went to celebrate our daughter's 8th grade graduation.  She won the Presidential Gold Award for fitness.  Her brother won the same award last year.

Hope enjoyed her special day with a limo ride with 14 of her friends to Chattanooga.  They ate at a nice restaurant and then went to a park for a carousel ride.  Afterward, they enjoyed ice-cream at another shop,  and tonight she will be heading to a graduation party with friends.    

I am on the countdown to the school year coming to a close for me.  I have had a wonderful year, but I am looking forward to a few months off to enjoy being at home again.  My kids are looking forward to big home cooked meals!

grace and peace,
julie
