Our Graduate!

So proud of this young lady and all of the hard work she put into her home education the past 9 years!!!

A Baccalaureate Mass was held last Friday at 4pm for seven home school "classmates" from our home school group.

It was such a special, private Mass!

All of the kids participated.

After the Mass, we walked over to the church hall for a small cake reception.  The kids had a good time visiting with one another :)

(Our home school group's name is Ave Maria.)

(The oldest and youngest Hughes grandchildren - meeting for the first time!)

David's niece (above) is finishing up the last weeks of her Fellowship Program at Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.  

She was in Dallas for a colleague's wedding, and spent time with us last Friday!

We were excited to meet her little daughter for the first time (see below).

(His niece, great-niece, and David.)

Early Saturday morning, Sally and I flew out to Washington D.C. for a graduation trip.  F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. time together, celebrating 9 hard years of home education.

I think I overwhelmed her senses with everything we saw.  

More to come!
