End of an Era

It's been awhile since I've been on here, I think.
Vaughan has graduated from high school with his 
accelerated diploma and
Magna cum laude. 
He is the first member of the NSBHS chapter of the National Technical Honor Society, 
Vaughan has also worked 20-24 hours a week at Chick-fil-A, 
been an amazing husband and dad.

It seems like yesterday we stared home schooling.
We lived in Oklahoma then,
later we homeschooled in New Hampshire 
and finally finished the 8th grade here in Florida.
Vaughan stepped foot for the first time ever in a public school his 9th grade year. I remember it like yesterday.
We all loaded into the car that morning and drove in the car pool line to drop him at the front door.
We rarely used that front entrance again and he spent his last 2 years driving himself to school.

Then he graduated.

Somewhere along the line he received enough credits, even managed to take some college classes along the way and landed himself right smack in the middle of a high school graduation ceremony.
Shouldn't he still be little?
I'm not sure we even took the training wheels off his bike?
He just can't be old enough,
but he is
and the graduation ceremony was great!
I loved it, much different than the small high school I attended.

Now that that era of our life is over, we step blindly into this next one.
I try not to wonder too much what it will hold,
afterall this last era looks nothing like I thought it would.

"...for we walk by faith, not by sight-"
2 Corinthians 5:7

I was so excited to see your blog post pop-up! What a celebration to see him achieve this milestone... I remember that sweet boy who sat in Sunday School class so many years ago...What a joy :) God has many great things in store for the Spanos family...More milestones, and yes, probably more adventures! Just like my blog says "subject to change ~ life as we know it"...
