Andrew, Seeing you grow and mature has been an awesome privilege. Sometimes, we still see the little boy who’d trap bumblebees and strike funny poses when Mommy took family pictures. We pray that God always watch over you as you make your own way in this world. We’re saddened that you’re leaving and yet excited for your future. We love you, Mom and Dad

Astrid Martin

You have gone far ahead of the pack in your own Astrid way: boldly, confidently, and compassionately with great humor, intelligence and strength. Fortune favors those with such gifts. May it smile upon you as you graduate and move on to college. We won’t be there every day to help you grow, but really you made our job so easy. You’re the one who accomplished so much! You’ve made spectacular recoveries with your “can do” attitude. It will make you soar. We are so proud of you and love you to pieces. Congratulations on your graduation!

SHS Graduation 2018

Wednesday, June 6, 2018 • 13

Dear Class of 2018... The roar of the crowd over comes your sense of hearing, sweet blue birds chirp in congratulations, while parents cry because their baby grew up. “Not unto ourselves alone are we born.” When we were mere babes we had the support system of our parents, grandparents, and guardians. Growing up we slowly weened of the daily packed lunches from our Mom & Dad, and learned to find our own way to walk, our own way to be. Once we found that way to be, we were sent off to school. A safe environment for some, but a difficult environment for others. Each and every one of us braved the emotional the trials of middle school, being a freshman infatuated with a senior, we endured the sophomore slump, we ran the Junior Marathon and even survived the disease of “Senioritis”. We did all these as one cohesive body, bonded by the simple commonalities of geographic location, age, and the ability to attend a school equipped to send you into the world with a diploma. However we will leave this school as individuals molded by our shared experiences and our own experiences. We may not have started this journey alone, but as we graduate we will join not the masses of Sequim High School, but we will join the masses of humanity, each one of us headed off to different sectors of society, college, work force, and military. In any case we will make Sequim proud, we will make our home proud. Signing off, Annabelle Armstrong

Nickolas, Congratulations to you and the entire Class of 2018. You should be extremely proud of yourself for all your hard work and dedication over the years. Time goes by fast, it seems like just yesterday that we were dropping you off for your first day of pre-school. What makes your graduation day extra special for us, is having watched you grow up and always willing to try new things and having the determination to do your best. You have always made us very proud and we know that you will continue to do so! Love, Mom, Dad and Andrew

Dear Elandon (aka Bubby Roons or Roonies), The day you were born, it seemed like Kindergarten was a million years away and then I blinked and the bus was there picking you up on that first day. I cried and counted the minutes until it brought you back home. Well, I blinked again and here we are. Time does not sympathize with a Mom’s heart. Over the last 18 years, you have given me the luxury of having constant sense of pride and never one thing to worry about (except for that one time you went missing a the Marine Life Center). Forever grateful. Thank you! You put your heart and soul into everything you do, you never give up, and your character is unmatched to anyone I have ever met. You have the best sense of humor with a personality to match. What a blessing it is to be your Mom. You are going to head off into the world and continue to excel and make me proud, as you have always strived to do and I will always be here for anything you may need. I love you more than you could ever imagine! Love always, Mom

Dear Amanda, We are so proud of you for becoming a high school graduate. You graduated high school while managing to get your AA, which is something not a lot of us thought you could do. You may have failed a grade of two, but you have never failed to put a smile on someone’s face. Your GPA is about as low as your savings account but your heart is as big as a Jack in the Box Jumbo Jack cheeseburger. We love you very much and wish you the happiest, most platitudinous future imaginable. Stay golden, pony boy.

We are so proud of you in so many ways! You’re a great brother and a wonderful son. We’re so grateful we got to be your parents! Love always, Mom and Dad

Maia Binswanger

Maia, The world needs your thoughts, perspectives, talents and beliefs. Find what speaks to you most in this world, pursue it with passion and build a life around it without fear. Ask God for opportunities to be a light to those around you and he will always help you. Remember you always have a choice no matter what the situation. Try to see the positive side of life; it will present you with opportunities others can’t see. Continue to spread your joy and happiness – it will attract like-minded people to you. Surround yourself with people who remind you how amazing you are and avoid the people who don’t. Choose to see the world with kindness, give your smile away freely, be wise in your choices, stay true to yourself, let God guide your heart and know we always have your back. The world is full of beauty, wonder and goodness, search it out and you will find it. We love you so much, Mom, Dad & Drake “Guard your heart above all else for it determines the course of your life” Proverbs 4:2

Mason Larsen

Mason at a young age was into everything. I put up gates, he would climb over them. I locked cupboards, he found a tool to take it apart. At the age of 5, he tied a rope around his neck, stood up on a window sill and jumped. In his mind, he was Spiderman for a moment. He has lived the life of an “EXTREME” kid. As you entered your teenage years I learned you had developed an amazing moral compass. You treat all people with kindness. You have learned know to set boundaries but still have fun with your friends. You know that time spent with your grandparents is never wasted. You are forgiving and non-judgmental. You are humble. Now we are on the verge of another milestone. This one involves big change. This isn’t only about growing up, it’s about being a grown-up. I am forced to step back and watch your life unfold. It will be my biggest challenge, as a mother. Did I do my job right? Have I taught you what you need to know? We might not know exactly what the future holds, but I’m sure I can make a few predictions. I believe you will continue to soar and grow. You will stay true to who you are and you will continue to treat others with kindness. I am trusting you are now ready to be the man God expects you to be. My final guidance as you leave your childhood behind and enter into the adult world. -Don’t ever look down on anyone unless you are helping them up. -Success is measured by who you are, how you treat others and how you lead your life. -Surround yourself with people who remind you of how amazing you are, and respectfully avoid the ones that don’t. -There is no place like home. Never forget that you always have a soft place at home, even if your sister takes over your closet. -Always remember your morals, values, and integrity -Treat every woman with respect -Never be afraid to challenge the ridiculousness of the world.-Be on time -Laugh often and loudly -Always be yourself -Don’t forget to welcome the setbacks that will come along, because through the hard times you will find some of your greatest lessons. -Know I love you and will always be your support and biggest fan

Aaron, The last 18 years have been a journey of experiences. You have faced every opportunity and situation with determination, faith, and effort. You have combined these experiences to form your Christian character of which we are very proud. This will serve you well as you continue forward into adulthood. In school you learned how to learn. You mastered language, reason and rhetoric. In your activities you learned working in groups, helping others when they struggle and to celebrate with them when they succeed. You developed empathy, grace, and a servant’s heart. We couldn’t be prouder of you.
