Last Days

Yesterday was the last day.

The last day of having to wear a school uniform. The last day of rushing around trying to avoid a Tardy. The last day of being a high school student. The last day for holding onto any vestiges of childhood.

Taylor spent his final day as a senior going out to breakfast with his friends, attending a signing ceremony for himself and other recruited athletes in the school gym, enjoying a senior luncheon and attending graduation practice. Then, he and his best friend, Cameron, perfected their dives in our pool, splashed around with the little kids, and then Taylor packed away a bunch of Papa John's pizza to celebrate his big finish!

Now, he is packing for his senior trip. He will soon be on his way to Gatlinburg and when he returns, it will only be a few short weeks before he is headed off to LaGrange to begin the next phase of his life as a college student and member of the LaGrange College football team.

It is a time of celebrating endings and beginnings, accomplishments and aspirations. It is a time for fondly remembering the past and eagerly anticipating the future . . .

Anyway, here are some pictures from the signing:

This is Taylor with his friend and teammate, Cameron, who signed with Atlanta Christian to play basketball.

Joseph congratulates Taylor on a job well done!

The Towering Trio!
