The celebrations started off with the first annual transfer student luncheon where students were recognized for being accepted to a 4-year university. The luncheon, due…

We’re already preparing for college and other learning endeavors. Graduation day started a bit early for us as we had to travel to the graduation venue. Even though it made for a long day, I was glad they did the rehearsal and ceremony on the same day. We met up with family for lunch at Chick-fil-a before dropping Munchkin off for the rehearsal. Munchkin had fun getting to know…

I’ve been working on finding some meaningful gifts that fit with her interests, and we found some really great gifts at Family Christian. High School Graduation is a big milestone in becoming a successful adult. We want her to start off her adult life on the right foot by nurturing her faith. A new Bible with a special journal seemed to make perfect sense. When I found the Archaeological Study Bible, I knew that it would be…
