Graduation Announcements and The Gift of an Ordinary Day

Graduation. A time of reflection, excitement, sadness, and hope. Hope for the future that as a parent you’ve done the right thing and the best job, in raising your kid, and he will do fine.

It’s graduation time in our household as we get ready to graduate our middle son, Garrett.

Luckily I was on the ball and got my announcements ordered in a timely manner. Which, by the way, Garrett’s little sis took his Senior pictures this year! :)

Now I want to be able to sit down and enjoy writing out the addresses, and thinking about the families and friends who’ve been supportive to our son in his growing up years.

You can get some really simple, but classy, announcements on heavy card stock.

I thought these were a great reflection of our son, Garrett.

Also, if you have a few minutes, sit back, and listen to Katrina Kenison, as she recites portions of her book, The Gift of an Ordinary Day.

Maybe you have a child graduating middle school, high school, or college this Spring.

For sure it’s a sentimental, nostalgic, rewarding, magical time …


Do you have a graduate in our household this year?

  1. Congratulations! I loved reading The Gift of an Ordinary Day, and I’m so excited that you are featuring this video. We are only halfway there (my oldest is 9) so I’m glad that I have found you and Katrina Kenison to show me the way. :)

  2. I was almost happy that the video stopped many times to buffer. It allowed me time to dry tears and “remember when”. Our last of 5 will graduate in 2014. Seriously, how has all this time just fled by?

  3. Very nice, especially thinking back to days gone by!
    Enjoy your Mother’s Day Sandy and thanks for all you do, you are an inspiration!

  4. I love the graduation announcements-such a great photo. Enjoy your ordinary days before college. :)

  5. Oh my goodness. Thanks so much for sharing that poignant video with all of us. My first child will be graduating from high school next year, and I am already feeling sad about it. The first 9 years of his life went more slowly, but 8 have just flown by.

  6. I didn’t realize your boys were so close in age! Your daughter did a great job on the photo! CONGRATULATIONS!! Enjoy the next season with him!
