So, Siegel graduation was today. WOW! It’s hard to believe all these
amazing kids are now high school graduates! It was a great day. We
started off at the Millwood’s and celebrated with Drew and family. We
went to the Caskey’s to wish Brooke well, then we left for graduation.
Traffic was awful! The man in front of me stood and moved and motioned
his hands every time I was about to take a picture. I was ready to just
go stand in front of him, but I didn’t. It was just very frustrating to miss
out on some great shots. After graduation, we went to the Garner’s for
Beth’s Happy Graduation party. It was a great time, and there is just no
one that has come to mean as much to us as Bethy. I think it’s the way she
took Chip under her wing when he was an 8th grader marching, then called
us Chip’s Mom and Chip’s Dad all the time, then started coming to the house
for movie nights and spent time really visiting with us. Yeah, God just gave
us a special love for Elizabeth Leigh Garner. So, we gave her a special gift
for graduation…her first guitar. No more tennis racquet guitars for her!
I know she’ll teach herself to play, and Bernie taught her three chords already.

He’s breathing, though, because he was able to stick his arm up—kind of.
