Elijah Graduates

Well another year, another graduating from college[1]. You may recall Joshua finished up last year and it's Elijah's turn this year with Mara to follow next year.
Elijah has enjoyed a lot of subjects these past two years, taking particular interest in CADD (Computer Aided Drawing and Design) for which he received a course award. The college also offered a range of activities -- participating in rugby, snowboarding, snorkelling and mountain biking -- which, if you know Elijah, he lives for.

Elijah pauses with his grandparents on the way to the graduation ceremony.

He's been very fortunate to have been offered some well-paid work for the next little while, starting a couple of weeks ago. We are waiting to hear on university course offers but, at this stage, his plan is to work for a while, saving money to finance participating in missionary work for our church. Though I expect university is in his future -- as noted above, he has a strong interest in design and technology -- he'll likely address that a bit further down the track. For now, we're glad to see him finish with good grades and an open road before him.
