Just The Beginning

It’s hard to believe that Sebastian will be graduating from high school in just two short weeks.  He started school as a shy five year old and has become a confident young man.  He pitches on the varsity baseball team, has a part time job, works out whenever he can and is graduating with nearly a 4.0 GPA.  We celebrated his baseball team’s senior night with him last week.  Instead of being sad that his high school days are ending, we are excited for him to start college and his adult life.  We couldn’t be more proud.


Just the seniors.

His teammates and friends call him Sebas or in this case, Seabass.

13 years of baseball memories.

Starting pitcher for senior night and he had a “heck of a complete game”, per his coach.

We are looking forward to graduation and seeing all of our family and friends at the grad party.  College orientation is scheduled for June and freshman welcome week is at the end of August.  It’s just the beginning of many more great experiences for Sebastian.
