Our High School Graduate...

How can it be that this little guy grew up to be a man in just a few blinks of the eye? I'm sure that from his perspective, it has taken forever... but as every parent knows, it seems to happen overnight!

This weekend Lucas will officially "graduate", meaning that he has completed the requirements of his parents as well as the state of California to be awarded a high school diploma. As a homeschooling family we like to think of education as an environment and a lifestyle... so in that sense graduation is just the end of one chapter and the beginning of another!

When Lucas was a little guy he was quite outgoing and uninhibited; today he is generally a more quiet and reserved guy, but he definitely has a quirky sense of humor and a flair for the dramatic as anyone who has seen him perform one of his interpretive speeches knows!

The highlights of his high school years have been speech club and ballroom dancing. Through these activities he has gained many lifelong skills as well as some great friends.

Some interesting (and perhaps not so well known) information about Lucas:

He likes country music and vintage cars.
He loves pizza and he eats peanut butter and dill pickle sandwiches.
He is a great carpet bowler and bowls with a "senior's group" whenever he visits his grandparents.
He can be found practicing his dance routines out on our sport court after dark.
He owns more formal wear than all the other men in our family put together!

Lucas we love you and consider you a great blessing to our family. We look forward to seeing how the future adventures of your life unfold as you use your God-given talents to serve Him!

He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, to love kindness,
And to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8
