Congratulations, Tyler!

Yesterday Tyler graduated from Black Forest Academy. He was part of the largest graduating class ever!

Waiting for the grad march to begin.......

Tim had the privilege of giving tributes to and shaking the hands of 78 seniors. This took quite a long time - over an hour - but we think it is really important to honor each of these very special people! When it was Tyler's turn, Tim had to pause for awhile because it was - well - a very tender and rather emotional moment. That's when I lost it (and so did others in the audience!). We love you, Tyler Joshua Shuman! We are so proud of you!

Officially graduated! Reason to celebrate!

Endless signing of yearbooks - a very big deal at BFA!

A large part of our graduating class are Asians. They wanted Tim to join them in this picture!

We are thankful that Luke could be here in Germany to help celebrate his favorite brother's special day!
