|Jackson receives his high school diploma|
Last Sunday we were privileged to witness our first grandchild graduate from high school in Elkhorn, Nebraska. We spent a few days of intense activity which included: getting ready for a big back yard party at our daughter's house, the actual graduation ceremony, a band concert, soccer games, baseball games and family get togethers. It was all enjoyable but a much faster pace than we are used to! The graduation ceremony was meaningful and the highlight for me was seeing Jackson receive his diploma. We're proud of the wonderful, thoughtful young man he's become and we look forward to what his future will be.
We worked hard helping the family get ready for the party. Although the weather forecast was not encouraging, Mother Nature smiled on the Oligmueller back yard and the rain held off until later that night.
We drove home on Monday and had two days to get ready for our company. Once they are gone we'll have a little breather until the next round of company arrives.
Here are a few photos from our Nebraska trip.
