As you may remember, Ted did not want a graduation party, so Saturday we took him out to lunch and gave him his diploma and a few small gifts. We had already given him his graduation gift, but I wanted us to give him a few small items that represented David and I and our time with him. So I gave him a new watch to represent all the "time" we have spent together over these years of homeschooling.
(I'm not going to show the actual diploma for privacy reasons)
On Sunday we celebrated my niece's wedding, which was alot of fun. They actually live in Germany (the groom is in the military) so it was nice to share this with them before they had to go home.
On Monday, which was Memorial Day, David was off so we enjoyed a slow day around the house. Later that night, David grilled chicken and we enjoyed a nice dinner with all the kids.
Tuesday morning we got a call from our friend Brenda, telling us that her husband Eddie was in the hospital and would be having open heart surgery this week. He has since had the surgery and is recovering nicely, so far.
That call reminded me that we are to hold our plans loosely, as the Lord has his own agenda.
("In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps.")
I wonder what God has on the calender for me today?
