Yup...It's true he graduated early from High School in December 2011, yet we have put off the grad pics. and ceremony till this Spring. It is now official...We home schooled our boy all his years through H.S., then he started attending a Jr. College this last Fall. Now he has one year of college under his belt finishing up in early May. We planned his special graduation ceremony for May 12th. I found a really fun site for home schooled graduates where you can order special diplomas and tassels etc.. We ordered both and found a wonderful deal at the thrift shop for a black grad gown and cap for....2 BUCKS...On sale. And it was in his size. So exciting. The guests are RSVPing, the food is planned out, the pictures are taken.
Now we just wait for the date. I can't believe the time has come...And he will be 18 in June.
All these changes. We are very proud of him. He is pursuing what he loves, studies hard and has kept a job through this school year. We look forward to the many blessings ahead that are awaiting him. We pray for him daily, we love him with all our hearts.
We had fun doing this little photo shoot. We are on a budget and can't afford to have professional pictures done. I would so much love to do that for him...So instead we improvised as best as we could. Thankfully my camera takes decent photos. He changed his clothes a couple times, we found some spots to take pictures in our town and he smiled his sweetest smile. And thank God for photo editing from Picmonkey
( I am so loving it)
I played with the pictures for a spell and ended up with some nice shots. I am pretty proud of them. He loves them too. Just one more tiny session in his cap and gown, ceremony and party pics.
And we will have some wonderful picture moment memories. I am so grateful to God that we can do all this on a budget and still make it a special memory for our son. Wish we could buy him a car.
Oh well. (sigh)
Just a couple more weeks and I'll get to share the rest of this story.
Thanks for following along with us. Have a blessed day...The weekend is almost here.
