My son when he was 8 years old at Yellowstone National Park. ©

I am so thankful for this day when my second son graduates from high school. The past two years have been extremely challenging for him due to knee injuries and then surgery. I am so proud of how he has handled himself by persevering and working hard to get to this day.

The above picture is of when we visited Yellowstone ten years ago. I remember how he loved climbing rocks and playing with sticks, and being able to see through the binoculars like a big boy. It’s hard to believe that he’s all grown up.

If you would like to share your version of “Thankful Thursday” (photos or text or both) today or in the future, you can link your post to my post on Thursdays in the comments section. Happy Thursday Everyone!
