It's A Big Day

Today is a big day in our little town. Aside from funerals, weddings, and basketball tournaments, high school graduation draws the most people together in our community. These kids are our pride and joy. They're the best crop that we produce, and we grow 'em well around here.

This year, I'll be in the bleachers as the senior class walks across the stage. It won't take long; there are only eight of them. But that doesn't change the significance of the day, and to one senior, it's an extra special day. 

Click here to read all about it, and you can revisit this post to hear more of this family's story. (And by the way, May is National Foster Care Month. If you know a foster care family, be sure to tell them thanks. These people are doing God's work.)

Congrats to your grads!
My hubby's class had only 7 in it. But now we are moving up, around 20. A bit of a difference from the 532 I graduated with. I do love small schools, though!

Big congrats to your grads and their families! I read the article about the Wichman family and was truly amazed. What a wonderful family!
