Homeschool Graduation

I'm going to take a minute to brag about my hubby. He is the new president of UHEA which is the Utah Homeschool Education Association. He volunteers his time and effort on behalf of homeschoolers in Utah, working on improving resources, legislation, networking and public relations. He was kind of thrown into the position and is doing very well at it. Every year, UHEA hosts a homeschool graduation, prom, and a convention with a curriculum fair. Last night was the graduation. Petter had to sign the certificates, give a speech, serve dessert, and chat with people.

His speech was inspiring and fresh. The entire program was really great, it was the best graduation I've ever been to. One of the speakers was a graduate, who talked about why they made it to where they are: it's because of their mothers. Mothers who took the time and painful effort to teach the children on a daily basis, without pay or compensation. It made me feel like all I do will be worth it and it was really sweet to see the kids and their parents reach such a landmark. This Saturday is the big convention: I'm sure it will be inspiring as well.
