This year has been filled with many milestones for our family. Yesterday marked another as Cole graduated from 8th grade with his three classmates! We are so proud of him and were beaming with joy as he gave his graduation speech. Time has flown by as we remember Cole starting kindergarten when we first arrived in Africa. Most of his school years have been spent here in Mali in small missionary schools. He is thriving and is happy going to school in this environment. Next year he will return to the same school with his friends to start the adventure of high school. Interestingly enough, as freshmen, they will be the upperclassmen next year unless more high school students arrive.
Our video this week is a special BCA Friends Forever memory video John put together for the graduation ceremony.
