Reason to Rejoice

A few short years ago, we were blessed with a second son. Much has transpired since then and Carsyn has made good use of his time - he has packed 12 years of school work into 10. He was only in Grade 3 when he first voiced the idea that he wanted to finish his schooling early.

Acceptance, diligence, perseverance, precision, loyalty, determination and wisdom are a few of the character qualities that God has built in Carsyn through his life's journey thus far.

On Saturday, June 13th, at the graduation ceremony, the fathers each had opportunity to encourage their son. Ken chose to encourage Carsyn to attempt great things for God & the furtherance of His Kingdom. Philppians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." This verse was the theme verse we chose for Carsyn. He has demonstrated great tenacity in accomplishing his goals, now he was encouraged to seek the Lord in setting further goals and relying on God's strength to accomplish those as well.

We celebrated Carsyn's high school graduation along with two other young men of the local homeschool group. Numerous family & friends joined us in the celebration which began with a pit roasted pork supper for the Grads, their families and Grandparents.
