Amanda's family waited until mid August to celebrate her high school graduation because they have been in the middle of construction on a new home.
Amanda's family helped us with many of the last minute details in our celebration of Joe and Lissie's graduation in May (see Multiple Milestones for a Dynamic Duo), so when we arrived we were eager to bless them in a similar way. Tessa helped with the baking, which, of course, is a familiar role from home.
Joe and Speedy, on the other hand, got to try their hand at something new.
We also helped put some of the finishing details on the new house so that it would be ready for the big dinner on Saturday night.
