Our seniors participated in a Baccalaureate today. I attached the program- it was basically talks, music, and a commencement address given by a beloved teacher. He was Andrew's physic's teacher. It was well done and not too long. My perfect kind of meeting.
Also tonight was seminary graduation to honor 4 years of memorizing scriptures, learning the gospel, building friendships and strengthening testimonies. I'm so grateful that my children had a seminary class to look forward to each day during high school.
We have 2 centurions in the house! Being that it is their last and final year of seminary- seniors could take a test of 100 scriptures that they have studied over the past 4 years and if they pass they become a centurion. The scriptures are from the Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and the Old and New testament.
Seminary has been such a blessing for my kids. I am so thankful for it and the positive effect it has had on them. They have both loved going and participating in seminary. We are fortunate that they get "release time" during the school day to walk across the street to the seminary building in place of an elective each day. No early morning seminary or once a week home study like I used to have. They have it in their class schedule during their school day.
