The Graduate

At three years old, Jack has already had his first graduation. We are really going to miss Jack's wonderful "school". Luckily, he is going this summer or I would have never made it through the graduation ceremony!
Jack is seated way over at the end of the little chairs to the right in this picture.
There he is with Ms. Jennifer, his Friday morning volunteer, sitting behind him.
Here's Jack and Ms. Jennifer getting Jack's "diploma" from Ms. Betty.
"Wooohoooo....I got it!"
Jack and Caleb after the ceremony. Caleb is Ms. Catherine's (Jack's Wednesday morning volunteer) son. He and Jack sort of matched, didn't they?
Jeanie and Elise enjoying cake at the reception.

The graduation ceremony was incredibly moving. I am choking back tears now as I am remembering the lovely powerpoint presentation that they showed of all the graduates and watching all of Jack's graduating classmates make their way across the stage. There's no way I can capture the magic of our time there at that "school" in this blog. The school is supported completely through private funding and donations. If you find yourself wondering how you can monetarily make a difference in the life of a child, please consider donating to Jack's school. I did not intend to hijack this post to ask for donations but if you would like to give, please click on the firstgiving widget to the left.
