Graduation and Baccalaureate

Oh man have we been so busy.  We are trying to get everything ready for Ryan's graduation.  Lots of things to do around the house. Friends and family are coming to eat before his graduation. The menu we have planned is BBQ sandwiches, baked beans, potato salad, chips, chocolate chip cookies, brownies, cheesecake, gummy worms, sour patch kids, pop, water and tea.  All of his favorite things.  I am so proud of him.  He started his summer job today.  He wanted to get started saving money for college in the fall and said he did not have anything better to do, so he works Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  He has Friday off because he has graduation practice.   He had Baccalaureate last night.  It was put on by some of the Seniors and Pastors from some of the churches in the area.  It was absolutely wonderful.  The speeches given, songs sung and just the joy of thanking God for getting all of us through the school  years.  We blessed and prayed over the Seniors.  The only thing sad about it was there were only about 20 kids there.  He has approximately 167 kids in his class.  It makes me sad that parents and kids do not attend such a wonderful and important event.  I will post picture of Graduation next week.  Back to cleaning and getting things ready
