Alex Graduates from High School

Alex celebrated his graduation from High School this month.  Our church honors our seniors on graduation Sunday.  Alex and several of his friends participated.

Alex was awarded the Ironmen's Scholarship and was given a bible.

We hosted a graduation open house in our home on May 14th.  Although the weather didn't cooperate and we ended up moving the family room furniture upstairs in order to set up tables and chairs inside, we had a really nice time visiting with friends and family.  It meant a lot to Alex to have so many people who have influenced his life celebrate with him.

I did not get a single picture of his open house.  It didn't even occur to me at the time.  There was so much going on and so many people coming and going that there wasn't time.

We are very proud of Alex.  He has done an excellent job with his schooling.  Being the oldest, he was at times our 'guinea pig'.  We tried many different kinds of curriculum, some of which we liked, some we didn't.  We feel we have given him a well-rounded education, centered on our faith in Jesus Christ.  He has excelled in his math and science courses, and has had the opportunity to learn many skills that are unique to our home school.  We are pleased with the man he has become.

Alex has been accepted to Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny.  He plans to play soccer for them this fall.

Here is a link to view the slideshow presentation that we showed at Alex's open house.
