One of those important mile-markers in life … the twins have officially graduated from high school. YAY! For all of their hard work and diligence, both graduated at the top of their class (#3 and #7 in class ranking – 334 graduates), with 4.0 GPA and honors. Yeah, we’re proud.
There were a couple very special teachers along the way, and it was quite moving to see their reaction and their emotions at the graduation ceremony. Mostly, it just shows how much kids can accomplish when they have teachers who genuinely care and give everything they’ve got to their students.
So, summer is officially upon us … a chance to kick back a bit, earn some money for college in the fall, and just get ready for the adventures ahead. Mason and Ross (the graduates) will be continuing with their lifeguarding jobs at the Y, and Dillon is off to TN Governor’s School at University of Tennessee Knoxville for 5 weeks. Grant will be helping out at the local summer tennis camp once again, and I know that time is going to fly by. We have some college visits to make for Dillon … so, a family vacation this summer may not happen.
I’m trying to find a few days (or a week) to sneak in a biking trip. Guess I’m having a case of summer wanderlust, but I just really want to try a multi-day adventure. I’ve got the bike set-up, the equipment and the legs … just need the time. We’ll see.
