Graduating. Meet My Class.

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

I feel slightly.....weird.....posting nine pictures of ME in one post.  However, I'm graduating.  And I've anticipated taking these pictures with Courtney forever....actually, it's been almost a year now that I've been seeing it as an approaching reality, and been thinking up ideas of how I want them to look.  Now that graduation is only weeks away, and my party is being planned for, and school is closing to an end ~ I can hardly believe that it's all going to be over.  And a huge chapter of my life will be closed.

So ~  here they be.  Here's to the "next chapter"! 










 And it was time to head home and then leave for a baby shower.......thank you Courtney for taking my pictures! 

My graduation party is on the 3rd....very much looking forward to that.  But mainly I am just so relieved to be through with everything.   Looking back on the years that my parents invested in me through homeschooling, I can only say that I am so thankful for what they did.  I have truly loved being home schooled, and anything I've achieved academically can only be credited to my parents - and especially my wonderful mom.  

To those of you still in school?  Keep going strong!  Graduation will come ~ so don't doddle.  But also, don't rush it either.  Relax, take your time, and learn what you need to learn.  And enjoy where you are right now. 

Homeschooling parents?  Please don't give up on us.  We need this education at home, whether we say it or not.  As a finished graduate, I can objectively look back and say that I believe homeschooling is SO WORTH IT.   The effort, sacrifice, and sometimes painful moments of schooling us at home is hugely outweighed by all the good we students get out of it. 

"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith."
2 Timothy 4:7

(Lest any of you place me on a pedestal of glory, I am still facing eight modules of Chemistry and some lingering English lessons.  *cough*  Not done yet.  Probably won't be officially done for....a few months? *another cough*  Still working at it!)

Homeschooling is such a blessing, and I too am very thankful to my parents for their decision to school us at home!
