Rebekah's high school graduation!?!

Our daughter Rebekah graduated from high school last week!?! It was lots of fun to celebrate all of her hard work in high school and accomplishments. She took several college classes this year, and scored A's in all of them! What a smartie pants!

She had two graduations. One was with our public "umbrella" school that we use for funding and support. The 2nd was a more intimate, Christian ceremony with other Christian homeschoolers from our area. The 2nd ceremony was more meaningful, included a Bible verse in the video and the parents spoke a 30 second message (each) to the graduate. When I read my message aloud after I wrote it, I cried the first time! I am happy to say that I did not cry when I spoke for the recording. It was quite an emotional few weeks for me! 

We're so proud of and thankful for this girl, and happy she'll be living at home again next fall! 
Enjoy the pictures!
 All ready before ceremony #1...

 My bestie came to the 1st ceremony with her boys, and the younger one wore her cap!
 Her display on the table... photo and music, of course!

 My nephew wore her cap too!
 On Sunday afternoon, she had a senior voice recital, where she sang 9 songs, had an accompanist, and a friend played 2 pieces during her breaks!
 Singing...
She did just beautifully! So thankful for her love of music and God-given talent!

Her life verse...

Zephaniah 3:17
The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
