The Christian Homeschool Association of Northeast Louisiana will hold its commencement exercises Friday, May 7, 2010 at 7 p.m. at The Pentecostals of the Twin Cities in West Monroe, Louisiana. I have been home schooled for ten years, and now I'm FINALLY graduating! It has been quite a journey, and I have so many memories, such as driving all the way to Utah. Each time we crossed a state line, my mom would make my sister and me read about that state. I always looked forward to our "study retreats" to the beach where we would prepare for all those final exams we never took! On a serious note, my homeschool experience has taught me the value of learning without boundaries or handcuffs. Each adventure became a classroom and some of my greatest dreams have been nurtured, even have come to pass. Even though this chapter of my life is about to close, I look forward to what God has in store.
