Only One Left

Each of our three boys has graduated from high school.
Emma is the only one left for me to teach.
I'm working myself out of a job.  Or, so it would seem.  :)  

Austin was called home to heaven six days prior to his graduation day.
Two years ago, Calvin walked the stage and received his diploma.
And now, Fraser has completed his high school requirements.  

He looks happy about it, don't you think? 


The principal of our school gave a wonderful address to the grads.
He had the honour of switching the tassel from right to left.
Apparently, that one act signifies the passage from childhood to adulthood.

Just as quickly and easily as that.  :)


We all gathered together for a family photo.


Then, the kids posed for me.


And, we posed for Calvin.


And, that was that.

Fraser, we pray that the Lord will guide you as He has in the past.
We have every confidence that He will be faithful to lead you each step of the way.
And, we know that whatever He calls you to, He will see you through!

How precious it is to belong to Him!

"He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good;
and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly,
and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"  Micah 6:8

With All our Love,
Dad and Mum  XOXO

Congratulations on another graduate Camille. I had to look twice at the picture of the kids. They all look way too big. I know I haven't been away THAT long. ☺
