Day 244 of 1000
Grandpa Milo and Grandma Sarah called tonight to tell us they are coming for Kelly’s graduation. Kelly will be graduating from both Wake Technical Comminity College with an Associate of Science college transfer degree and from the Chapman Family Homeschool with a high school diploma. I think this would have been the first graduation my parents have ever missed. To say my mother values education would be a wild understatement. She was the first person in her family of many generations to get a bachelors degree. Three of her four kids have Masters degrees and all of us have Bachelors degrees. She has gone out of her way to be at every graduation of her children and her grandchildren. Kelly and Christian will be the last ones to graduate and, even though they were here not too long ago, I cannot say I am surprised she is coming. I am thankful for that.
Christian has enough hours to graduate from Community College, too, but he is missing a class in Ethics. That is OK, because we have decided to graduate the kids chronologically anyway. We will graduate Christian from high school in a couple of years when he is the right age. If he plays his cards right, he can graduate with his Bachelors degree the same time he graduates from high school.
Dad has always been very supportive of our education in every way possible, but that is was a big deal for Mom made it a big deal for all us kids and we are the better for. We are thankful you are coming Dad and Mom.
