Here we are – summer vacation, a time to relax and to get away! It is a time to forget about work, school, and daily cares of life and just have fun. It can be a time of new experiences, a time to add to our lives “list of accomplishments”. Climbing Mt. Everest, or maybe for most of us; visit a new national park. For our children, whether they realize it or not, it is a time of transition, a milestone on this road of life!
Here at Family First we have some of our “story time” kids moving on to the big kids’ school. Our junior high teens moving on to high school, high school teens on to college and some to start a working career. They are steps that affect the rest of their lives. Family First is here to help them along the way cheering them on as they achieve greater things!
There is no greater joy for a parent than to see their children grow and mature and succeed in their lives. At Family First we share in that joy as we see the children coming to our centers climb higher mountains!
This year we are so proud to have Julia, one of our teens, graduate as the valedictorian of her class! Wow! Can we take credit for that?! No, she has worked so hard these past years, always striving to do her best. We hope we had a part in encouraging her, being there offering some help along the way, letting her know she can do anything she sets her mind to.
So do we think everyone of our story time kids is going to grow up to be the valedictorian of their class? You bet we do! We pray God will enable all of them to be the best they can be, using us as the cheering squad!
Won’t you join us cheering on our next generation?
God Bless You,
