Sunday evening, June 23rd, 2019, Lizzie graduated from high school. Grandma Stogdill flew from Iowa to join us for the weekend. It was nice seeing her again. Here’s a selfie taken before the ceremony.
This year Warner Avenue Christian Academy had two graduates: Josh and Lizzie. Here they are playing a piece together with Josh on violin and Lizzie on piano.
As per tradition, each graduate had a slideshow that displayed his or her life from the beginning. Here is Lizzie’s.
Pastor Steve gave an encouraging address to all reminding us to keep learning. This is only the “end of the beginning.” Then he presented the diplomas.
After the ceremony, we had a reception in the church’s fellowship hall where we had food and drinks.
Of course there was also cake and ice cream.
Josiah and his church friends really enjoy playing with Nerf guns. Here he is trying to pop a balloon with a gun that can shoot small balls pretty hard. (The balloon didn’t break.)
Here is Lizzie’s graduation photo.
Here is a video collage of the day.
