Delray Beach- Graduation Time

 

This is the time of year when many will be taking the next step in the adventure known as life.  Some will go to high school, others will be leaving the security of high school and all of the friends they’ve known for perhaps all of their lives, and then there are those embarking on a career or even more school when they graduate from college.

The aim of education is the knowledge, not of facts, but of values. William S. Burroughs

This weekend we’ll be attending all of the festivities for a special young lady we’ve known since the day she was born. She graduates from high school and this fall will be attending Villanova.

 

Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle. Robert Anthony

Larry still thinks of her as being only 9 years old because she is still sweet, thoughtful, full of life and still comes out with the craziest comments!

 

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. Benjamin Franklin

 

 

If you have the pleasure of having any children and young people in your life, enjoy them now because you blink and they’re ready to head off to their next new adventure!

Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. Albert Einstein

Have a wonderful weekend!

Getting out into the "real" world can be an exciting, but also scary time for a young adult.

Good morning Kathy Streib ,

It is that time of year and I especially like the quotes you have selected as these young graduates move on to greater things! Our grandson will be graduating from high school and on to Texas A & M as he enters the honors program in the Engineering college. He is amazing and I know he will do well!

Michael Jacobs We just returned from the graduation ceremony. I couldn't help but think of all of the great adventures they will have. 

Wayne Martin  I was thinking that it seemed like we'd just attended her christening.

faye schubert I couldn't agree more.  We have to make sure that all of our children have the best education we can provide. 

Barbara Todaro We owe it to all of our children and we owe it to our country to give children the very best education.

Kathy, with all the inspiring quotes, I think you would make an excellent commencement speaker.  Plus all your knowledge of the world would make for an excellent speech.

Kathy,

Sadly our educational system employs those who gargled through their education, and are teaching how to gargle to their students.  One of our friends son asked the teacher in a wold history class in high school about the tsars of Russia.  The teacher told him, "there were no tsars in Russia!"  Yes, it is true.  A

Congrtatulations to all the graduates. This is the time to grow strong, good, leaders with inspiration to make America greater than ever. As they are about to embark into the future, let's all give them a round of applause and support these brilliant minds that are so much further ahead with technology than older Americans.

Hi Kathy - It's graduation day here as well. We've decided to stay home tonight and cook something wonderful instead of going out and fighting the crowds.

Hi Kathy,

When I lived in CA, the last day of school was in the week before Father's day.  The last day of school in Sedona was last Friday.  I still have trouble with this. The kids go back around the first week of August when it is cooking outside!

Your pictures remind me that it has been far too long since I've been near a beach.  I need to fix that really soon.
