Having Fun!

Today was a fun day!

We spent the day celebrating Axel, our 3rd son,  graduating  from Cardinal Gibbons High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.


We have been there and done that: This is our third high school’s graduation from Gibbons.

We did not invite our “Fat Greek Family.”  (I hope you saw that movie. If not:  google it and schedule to see it).

axelg-4We kept it simple and just had fun, with some friends we have been car pooling with for the last years, some parents, teachers and school faculty members we have met along the years.

We enjoyed a good lunch. Talked and talked. Laughed and Laughed. Posted and posted. Texted and Texted.

We just had fun.

As principal Paul Ott said this morning:” we are the sum of all the choices we make: good and bad. And whatever the outcome: always keep God in your life, not only in the bad moments but in the good ones as well.”


Axel did well. He received the Four Year Honor Students Award, the Christian Service Gold Cost Recipients, the Student Government Service Award etc…

Please join me in congratulating Axel for his achievement, and in giving all the glory to God.
