The Graduates!

Saturday was a big day for celebrations. We received not one, but two invitations to attend the Sacred Heart Home Educators graduation ceremony for a couple of friends, and if that weren’t enough, we have also long been planning to attend the wedding of our dear friend Jeff Winkler to his beloved Jennifer. I knew for certain that Junior could not handle two big events in one day, so I cleverly split the responsibilities. I took Megan, Geneva and Jacob with me to the graduation in the morning, while Laurent stayed home with Paul to make sure they both made it to the wedding on time and wearing presentable attire; we were then to meet up with them at the other church in time for the afternoon event.

It was our first time at one of these homeschool graduations, so we were intrigued. The SHHE is much, much smaller than the statewide Arizona Families for Home Education, which held their grad ceremony on Friday night (and we wished we could have gone to that one, too, as we had some very special MoezArt friends graduating!). Being a Catholic home schooling organization, naturally the ceremony was conducted in conjunction with a mass. The SHHE is blessed to have Father Paul Sullivan as our “chaplain” if you will (I actually don’t know if there is another title, but at any rate, he is always the go-to priest for the Catholic home schooling events). The commencement was held at St. Thomas the Apostle, and it is such a beautiful church in which to worship. With a small graduating class of just ten, the ceremony, which was directly after the mass, was brief enough to allow each graduate the attention and applause they have earned with their hard work. It was a joy to be present and acknowledge the accomplishment of these great young people, and the labor and love of their parents in seeing them through to this milestone.

After the mass and ceremony and pictures, there was a delicious potluck dinner and more pics with friends. We had a great time, and once again, we wish a hearty congratulations to Faith Jezek and Theresa Pueyo!
