Allia's Graduation

We are so proud of Allia and all she has accomplished. We enjoyed a blessed celebration with family and friends.

We had lots of decorating to do beforehand with me being on the decorating committee and then her senior table. It was fun to do it together!


The ceremony was nice with Austin and I presenting her diploma and parents praying over the graduates at the end.

We had a nice casual dinner with family and a few friends at home after the ceremony.

Our first time to meet and hold baby Alora (my great niece). She is absolutely precious!

A few senior pics...

And the group...We are so proud of our first graduate. What a great group of kids. I can't wait to see what the future holds for them!

Sebastian's First Holy Commnion

 We were so excited to celebrate Sebastian's First Communion Sunday (along with Mother's Day)! Lito & Lita and Pawpaw & Manah celebrated with us. The mass was beautiful, and we had a delicious lunch afterwards and some fun games including an epic water balloon fight of which I failed to get photos (maybe because I was having too much fun participating). What a wonderful day for our sweet guy.

PGM Choir concert

 Our homeschool choir had it's spring concert Saturday. All the kids sang and/or played bells (except Stephen who had to stay home and recover from a long drawn out illness which turned out to be two viruses he caught simultaneously!). It was so beautiful and such a great community of homeschoolers coming together to "Praise God with Music"! We are so blessed by this group. It was bittersweet since it is Allia's last concert with them!


Allia conducted this beautiful Acapella song for the Madrigal (audition only group) ladies. It was lovely and a fun surprise for Austin and I.

Prom!

 Allia and Mariana both went to homeschool prom this year but in different friend groups. They were so lovely and had a great time (for the most part).

Senior Piano Recital

Allia played for friends and family at her senior piano recital Saturday. She had a good turnout of friends and family to witness the fruits of her 12 years of piano instruction. She and her amazing instructor put together a great program of music, and we enjoyed some yummy refreshments to celebrate afterwards.

The fun cookies our friend made for the occasion.
