Graduate!





In the middle of a very busy week, we had a high school graduation. After 15 years of Seminary. We have reached a milestone. Our eighth graduate from Norco High School. Our oldest started there as a freshman in 1993, so after 15 years with a Holmes someone on campus, we are done. Skyler graduated! With a big family, it is obvious that some have been easier and some harder to get through these years, and we are proud of our 'Skyman' for his efforts especially these last 4 years to get here. We had lots of support from friends, Brothers and sisters,
grandparents, aunts, and cousins on this special night.
Yay Skyler!

Wouldn't your family like to come over and have a swim party to celebrate with us? Our pool is lonesome and so are we.
