This is such a huge accomplishment for him, and for all of us! When we started homeschooling 9 years ago, I couldn't imagine this day! I'm so proud of him, I could scream!
Two years ago, I switched our curriculum for a totally different homeschool program (K-12). This program was a blessing in disguise and took over many of the responsibilities I had, such as lesson planning, purchasing curriculum FOR FIVE CHILDREN, and also help when we need it. In addition to that, they also hold graduation ceremonies for 8th graders and high schoolers (separate of course). For a homeschooling mom, this means so much to me/us. In fact, when I told Isaiah that he was going to be in a graduation ceremony, his face immediately lit up. If there was just one thing that I would miss for him (being homeschooled), it would be for him being able to take part in a graduation ceremony. This is such a huge blessing!
Unfortunately, my mom has to work, so she can't be there, but my in-laws, my sis in-law, Isaiah's two buddies, and one of Miranda's friends will be there with us to celebrate this joyous occasion!!
All the hard work, crying (even yelling sometimes..I won't lie), perseverance, and diligence paid off!! I'm so glad I didn't give up, but I know I couldn't do it in my own strength. God gets all the glory for this!!
Isaiah, I'm so proud of you!!! This is YOUR day!!
