Another "And We Are PROUD" LO

Well I liked the "And We Are PROUD - Navy" LO of our youngest son so much, that I just had to come up with a similar themed LO for our oldest son. So I tried the "journaling first" style again, and I am surprised to say I really like doing it that way!

Here's the LO:

Here is the journaling text:

You decided one spring day
To give college a try.
You had been out of high school
two years at the time,
working full time.
When you made
your decision,
we worked to gather
all that we would need -
as a homeschooler,
there were extra steps to take.
We gathered your transcript.
Boy, was I glad
we had used a good program
for keeping records.
We gathered the
letters of recommendation.
Our friend, Walter,
the retired professor,
was glad to write
a letter,
and glad to offer other help.
We reviewed
a few subjects.
We prayed.
When you tested
at the U of I campus,
and called shortly afterwards
to tell me you scored so high
they accepted you immediately,
Our first son,
our first homeschooler,
our first to go to college.
That first year
we prayed, we worried.
Not about your grades -
they were great.
But you were supporting yourself,
and that was tough.
You made it through,
and your second year -
at NIC -
was a breeze.
You have two more years
at U of I.
But in May 2008,
at NIC, we saw
our first COLLEGE GRAD!
And we are PROUD!
