Last night we had one more graduation. This time it was Garrett's graduation from high school.
Computer problems keep us from putting any video on here but we are able to show some pics.
It was hot again yesterday. About 90 degrees. Thankfully it was a little cooler in the place where we had the graduation.
Giovanni is our hot natured kid. He is always hot. Yesterday he was hot and tired and he crashed during the graduation. First he crashed on my girlfriend and then we switched and he crashed on me.
His head was soaking wet with sweat. It looked like someone had poured water on my shirt where his head was.
Garrett has a really great class and lots of good friends. We like all of his friends. It was a fun night.
Some post graduation photos:
This is Elias. He's been one of Garrett's best friends for the last 4 years. They make me laugh any time they are together. He may get to spend a couple of weeks with us when we are in the states. That sure won't be boring.
Garrett with his soccer coach. Playing for this guy this year Garrett won the city high school championship as well as the FC Bayern Youth Cup in our city. He got selected to go to São Paulo and play in April and his team was one minute away from getting to go to Germany in June. I think it's safe to say he's a good coach.
Today we get on a plane for our almost 3 month visit to the states. When we get home in March we begin testing at different pro teams to pursue Garrett's dream of being a professional soccer player.
The soccer world needs a soccer player who shines the light of Jesus. Garrett would definitely do that.
We leave the future to Jesus. For now, we celebrate with Garrett on his victory over high school. It was hard fought and Jesus gave Garrett the victory.
And we are so proud of him.
