Graduation Time

My all-grown-up nephew, Elijah, the one who first made me an aunt, just graduated high school. High school! How can that be? Wasn't he the little guy just running around with Tonka trucks, watching Bob The Builder? Now, he's over 6 feet tall and about to start college in a couple months. Wow. 

I'm so very proud of him. He is kind, funny, thoughtful, talented - and likes to push the limits. He's a teenage boy, of course. 

His graduation was on Saturday and we sat waaaay up in the balcony. Where's Waldo? 

There he is! 

I'm so glad we could be there for his big day. 

Elijah's graduation party was actually the night before. It was a beautiful (hot) Friday. Our dearest friends and family gathered in Chris and Lisa's backyard to celebrate. It was so nice to see faces from near and far.

Congratulations on a job well done, Elijah! This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter for you. I know you will go on to do great things with the gifts that God has blessed you with. We love you!

  1. Wow Sarah, do I feel old! I remember Elijah as a little boy excited about race car drivers! What a handsome young man. Please give him a big hug from us and tell him we say, "congrats and God bless"! Thanks for sharing the pics, it's wonderful seeing old friends. You all look great and we miss you all. Have a wonderful summer!


Thank you!
