Denver’s Graduation Celebration

6  comments

Denver completed high school right before we returned home from our summer tour. 
(FYI, we do our school a little differently than most people. Due to our unique schedule of touring AND farming, there are certain seasons that are better for concentrated schoolwork, and certain seasons that the children don’t do as much. At the beginning of high school for each student, our parents sit down with us and give us a list of all the books/subjects/projects they want accomplished for our high school requirements, along with the list of our state high-school requirements. The list varies from person to person depending on invididual strengths/weaknesses and also different giftings + talents. We then have the next “however long we choose/it takes”, to finish that list. We’ve all graduated at different times + ages. Denver worked like crazy through this past summer to finish out the last leg of his requirements. 
Hence, finishing in August, at age 16 1/2. =))

In attempting to find a date for his party, it was determined that since we would be cleaning up + doing prep for Labor Day anyhow..we might as well throw multiple parties that weekend. Why not? 
At first we all felt the idea was a little crazy but…eventually it was the one we went with. =)

Black, grey, and orange….

And here is the man himself! =) We don’t do a whole lot for decor at our grad parties-usually just a color theme and lots of pictures! So we did another wall (which I sadly have no pictures of) full of pictures from Denver’s life up to this point, and then we had a table for him with a scrapbook of baby/childhood pics, some of his senior pictures, and a few displays of his hobbies. (sports, animal skins, his Bible opened to his favorite verse, + Bible Bee trophies.)

Hot ham+cheese sandwiches (with a delectable butter/poppyseed/dijon mustard sauce), coleslaw, veggies+dip, chips, and brownies were on the menu.

That’s it for pictures-we have none of the actual party, or guests, or festivities, or anything like that. I guess we all just got too caught up in the party to remember to get pictures! It was a great time celebrating Denver!

  1. Congrats Denver! Looks like fun! Chels, you did an amazing job on his photos!!! Although you did have a pretty decent subject=))

  2. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

  3. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
