A wise son brings joy to his father. Proverbs 10:1a
Today we celebrate Samuel’s graduation from high school. It has been a joy to homeschool him and we are very proud of all that he has accomplished. Over the last several years we have become more advisers than teachers, planning and overseeing his work rather than instructing. He has had many wonderful tutors through high school who have contributed to his education; we could not have done it all ourselves.
Most of all, he has been a blessing to our family and his daily presence will be missed when he begins college in the fall. He will still be living at home, but he won’t be here to tuck Little Man in for his nap or drive Ladybug to her piano lesson. Samuel has always been exceedingly dependable, even throughout the tumult of the past three years.
It has been a joy to watch him develop his skills as an athlete and musician. He enjoyed running X-country and track this year and made it to State in both sports. Along with some siblings and friends, he recently created a music video. If you or your kids are into music and film, you can appreciate how much work goes into something like this! They uploaded it to YouTube yesterday and it already has over 1, 000 hits.
As we see him graduate, Russ and I wish we could go back and do some things again. We lost a lot of time with our older children these past few years, but they are remarkably resilient. We are very thankful for the young man Samuel is becoming and we know with deep assurance that God has a wonderful plan for his life. What a blessing and privilege it is to be part of it.
