Sunday, 2pm, Redwood I-III, http://www.californiahomeschool.net/expo/graduation/
The California Homeschool Network has been hosting a high school graduation ceremony at the annual CHN Family Expo for many years. It’s always a highlight of the conference. Why? Because it is a unique celebration of a moment in time when these homeschoolers lives are about to change.
As homeschool parents, we are so fortunate to be sharing an incredible journey together with our children. Walking hand in hand on our own unique path that we created together. The graduation ceremony marks the moment when we come to a fork in the road on that path and we must let go of our child’s hand and allow them to choose which path to walk without us. While we will always be there to love and support them, the graduation marks a moment of infinite change in their lives as they move forward into adulthood. Join us for this very moving ceremony and be sure to bring your hanky!
