This past week has been a memorable milestone for both Kellen and Joshua. First, Kellen's graduation on Friday, June 5, then Joshua's 8th grade passages on Monday, June 7th. Kellen celebrated with an all night graduation party following the ceremony, which included a cruise and some hilarious hypnotist stories, and Mike as a chaperone. They both had a wonderful time. Kellen followed that up Sunday with an Open House celebration at our home. Kellen's latest news is that he got a job yesterday, and starts as a "Courtesy Clerk" at Safeway on Monday.
Josh had his special 7th/8th grade dance on Thursday, June 4th, where he was escorted by 4 dates. We need to watch out for that one! Following Monday night's passages ceremony, a large group of 8th graders and parents went out to celebrate. It was a bittersweet celebration for Joshua, as he will not be attending Coupeville HS in the fall with this great group of friends. He has made the decision to go to Oak Harbor HS where he can wrestle for Dad, among other things.
