Whitney's High School Graduation

Whitney participated in the Home Educators Association of Virginia's commencement exercises on June 11, at the Richmond Convention Center, and it was such a special graduation day for her!  She and several of her friends participated, including her good friends Kaitlyn, Kaycee and Zeb.  There were over 200 graduates, and it was a grand ceremony!  We had a wonderful time.  Here are a few pics from our day.

Here's our Whitney, walking in for the ceremony!

Mike Farris, founder of Home School Legal Defense Association and Patrick Henry College, gave the commencement address titled, "Walk Worthy".

Our good friends Keith & Kelli, presenting diplomas to their triplets.

Surrounded by friends after the ceremony!

It was an exciting and fun time :)

Thanks Mike, for grabbing our camera and taking our picture!

More fellowship!

We were attempting to get a picture of Whitney with her  friends, and Suzette dove right in front of the camera!  I missed catching Suzette's crazy gesture, but snapped this pic on her way down!  Of course, the graduates got a big kick out of what she did! :)
It was a special, eventful day... from Linda and Suzette being in a car accident (thankfully no injuries!) on the way to the ceremony and barely making it in time... laughing and sharing melted candy bars while waiting forever to get out of the hot parking deck... to enjoying a delicious Mexican dinner with friends at the end of the day, it was certainly full of memories!

Congratulations Whitney and friends!!!  We love you and are very proud of you!
