The Graduate

Today is the day I have dreamed of for 18 years.  It is finally here.  My oldest is a high school graduate. (and two classes away from completing college freshman year- just a bragging mom)

When I took her out of preschool 14 years ago I never dreamed I would be the one to teach her for her entire school career.  The plan was to put her in school eventually.  As I have stated many times before, praise the Lord that His plan was different.  I have had the privilege to teach her, watch her grow, challenge her to learn, mold her heart, point her towards Jesus, and love her 24-7.  And I have loved every minute.

Her siblings adore her.
Her dad and I are so proud of her.
She is an amazing young woman and we know that the Lord has big plans for her.

Many of you reading this have loved her and encouraged her right alongside of us.  You have watched her grow and we thank you for your presence on her life.  It takes a village, and we have a pretty amazing one, if I say so myself.

Happy Graduation, Princess!!

Congratulations on a job well done!

We are proud of you!


  1. Congratulations ALP! May God richly bless you as you venture out in the world ready to meet any challenge He will give you. Michele, way to go! You did an awesome job on your daughter. It is hard to believe that our girls are 18, out of school, and ready to take on the world. My prayer is that they will always look to God for their strength and guidance. I will send you tissues in the fall.

  2. Congratulations to Ashton and all of the Pleasants. This has definitely been a group effort. Just one more example of a home-school success! Ashton, may you continue to follow after Jesus as you follow your dreams.

  3. Congratulations to ALL of you! What a wonderful celebration!
