Back tracking again :)
This time we go back to May when Ben graduated from high school as a junior.
At the end of his sophmore year he asked if we were ok with him graduating a year early. We questioned him on his intentions and goals and then said "If you can make it happen then go for it".
He went to our local ATC (Applied Technology College) that summer and got the extra credits he would need to graduate.
We are proud of him for working hard and accomplishing his goal!
|Ben, Stirling & Gayan ~ Two of his closest friends.|
|Family picture on graduation day ~ Both of our parents and DJ's sister and her husband were here.|
|A little click of the heels to show his happiness :)|
|Lined up and ready to get his diploma.|
|Such a proud moment!|
|Reading his graduation cards.|
|Seriously people, we aren't getting anywhere....|
|I'm laughing so much now as I look at these. Purely comical.|
|Ok, that's a wrap....it's useless. I am hiring a professional photographer at Christmas time. I've already laid that law down. No if's and's or but's!!|
|Dani and Nancy (her godmother)|
|The day before Ben's Open House we went up to Pineview Reservoir for dinner at the campground.|

|Ben and Tyler ~ They've been friends since they started playing soccer together in the 2nd grade. It's hard to believe that 4 months have already gone by since Ben graduated. I love that kid and am so happy I'm his mom :)|
