Marisela, myself and Teresa on graduation day. The girls moved up from primary school to secondary school. I was honored to be asked to escort Marisela (usually it’s a parent that does this).
Mariela, Alex, Jenny and Zaida
This is such a special group for us. We have gotten to know each of them over the past almost four years and seeing them graduate…what a huge deal! A few nights before the graduation we had our own version of Baccalaureate when we had them come over to our house and several of the house parents and leaders here at Casa prayed over them, gave them advice, encouragement and shared good memories. It was a really neat thing to share with them, and it’s a tradition we plan to continue.
I also have a “graduation” photo for Theo…
He didn’t graduate from Preschool yet, but they took pics of all the kids anyway. I smile every time I see this, he looks so grown up!
