Time to Celebrate

Every year our community gathers to celebrate milestones in the lives of our children. We have a special celebration for those completing 6th, 8th, and 12th grade. And a special prayer/sending off time for those leaving for college (many choose to stay an extra year). This year our sweet Charis finished middle school. wpid-dsc_5072-wm-2013-06-5-08-48.jpg

Moms gathered early in Gina’s kitchen to cook for the crowd.

Everyone helped make the day special. An amazingly talented teen made some pretty amazing cakes (and, yes, they tasted great too). Thanks Miriah!

Charis chose to play a piano special in lieu of a speech.
