Well ........ Friday is the day. She graduates High school, then in 2 short months she reports to her college team for training.
I CAN NOT believe it is over!


Oh and to add to the event, her 4 yr old sister has Strep AND Mono. Someone will have to stay with her. But we are thanking God, as we were thinking the worse when she broke out in hives and a tumor-like knot came out on the side of her neck. As sick as she is, it could have been worse. All on the brothers 16th birthday.

I wish I was there to give you a pat on the back for a job well done.

Need more dads like you.

Congratulations, Jon. She is a product of your good efforts.

I'm sure you and Mary are proud of all of them. Tell the oldest girl congratulations. I hope the younger one gets better.

Re: What about tomorrow?

I don't think I can take credit. Her and her brother raised Mom and I. They even got their Dad back in church.

Other than ball, she loves singing with members of her Christian youth group. They just performed at a youth revival

I'm proud of her, and I don't even know her!
It's people like this that give me confidence in the future.

Re: What about tomorrow?

My regards as well. Someone once said that the family that prays together stays together.

One of these days, I am going to try to stop by and go after some whistle pigs with you...

Re: What about tomorrow?

Would love to have you 41. You are always welcome here and the family would be offended to find you were near and didn't give us a shout.

Gotta get these guys to cutting hay!

Re: What about tomorrow?

She Graduated friday night, #7 Summa Cum Laude in a class of 142. Gpa was 4.006 with AP classes. Played 3 varsity sports and remained very active as a Young Life leader and anything else tht came down the pike at church.

Yep Ole Daddys a proud one.

AND

I have a pic of the graduation ceremony, where the entire gym is standing, with hand on heart, saying the Pledge Of Allegiance!
