My husband and I had the great pleasure to graduate our third child and oldest son at our homeschool groups annual ceremony. This completes his homeschool experience I hope he learned that education is all within his control and that he has learned the tools to become a lifelong learner and to take advantage of all opportunities.
Procession and Introduction of Graduates: Shawn Christopher Shutt Jr. escorted by his parents Shawn & Jennie Shutt, Sr.
During the Family Hour each parent gives a speech along with the graduate.

Presenting the Home On The Rock (HOTR) "Class of 2011"
This is just one of the Reception Cakes.
The reception tables decorated.
Each grad's family set up a table display and this is Shawn Jr.'s. I collected and organized everything for the display, made the diploma, sent out email invites, made the decorations, and purchased stands & frames. My husband made the slideshow on the computer, printed the diploma, made a SWAM Certificate, made the picture invite cards, and printed the graduation picture. Shawn Jr. collected some of his favorite music cd'd and memorabilia from his room. The three of us set up the table before the ceremony.
