Sixth Grade Graduation

Sixth grade graduation marks a giant milestone in a kid's life. It signifies the growth and maturity from elementary school to that of middle school. Seven years of friendships which began in kindergarten and for some relationships, will last a life time. We were pleased to know he had made so many friends. "He's a popular guy," many of his closests friends and teachers exclaimed. "All the girls like him and all the boys want to be his best friend." Too funny!

Christopher's commencement ceremony was held June 21 at Centralia Elementary School. He will be entering Walker Junior High School starting in September. Steve and I beamed with delight to watch him receive his diploma and watched him accept his "All Star of the Year" award. We're proud of you son!!!!
