Susanna's Graduation

Milestones are for celebrating. 

We all gathered to celebrate with Susanna this spring as she reached the milestone of her high school graduation. It's been quite a journey as Dad & Mom have been homeschooling for the past 28 years. We're so grateful for this opportunity and the many blessings it has brought to our family. 

Honestly, education has taken many forms over the years as we moved from a quiet, scheduled country life, to the activity of living in town with constant drop-in visitors. And finally, we adjusted to bus-school as we packed along our piles of books for each ministry tour. The studies were accomplished as the road sped under the bus tires...or in a church basement...or sitting at a Walmart parking lot. 

After all those adventures and obstacles, Susanna has completed her work. 

During the Nebraska Christian Home Educator's Convention, they honor the graduates as part of their evening ceremony. We cheered and applauded as our Susanna took the stage. 

Congratulations Susanna! 

After the ceremony, Kori captured a kaleidoscope of photos as we all wanted a picture with the graduate. Or with a random sibling. Or just a crazy photo simply because we all happened to be in the same spot TOGETHER! 

Family. Always treasured. Ever thankful!

Have you noticed that our guys always have to get a 'faux-serious' pose?


As we all were randomly taking photos, we realized that it happened to be "National Siblings Day". 
So we gathered the entire crew and captured one photo with all 13 of us! 

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!
Psalm 133:1
