It's a big week this week at our house. Justin graduates! Baccalaureate was tonight. At Coe Brown Northwood Academy it is an evening celebrating the success of the class as a group and individuals. All of the students are introduced by the headmaster and their plans for next year are announced. It is also a time to showcase the many talents of the graduating class. Although there are some very bright kids in Justin's class, what stood out tonight was their amazing artistic talents. The band played a beautiful selection, the chorus sang a very moving piece, and the select choir brought tears to my eyes with their rendition of The Star Spangled Banner. But what was truly amazing was the art. In a word....... stunning. This group of kids has crazy talent for capturing their world in every media imaginable. I would love to send you to the school web page to view their work, but the class of 2009 has not been posted yet. This is Justin being introduced. His plans for next year are to attend the University of Alabama where he will major in mechanical engineering and be a member of the waterski team.
