D.A.R.E. Graduation

     Recently, J and K, along with their classmates, graduated from the 5th grade D.A.R.E. program at school.  The school and local police department teamed up to host a small ceremony to celebrate the completion of the program.  The principal and the DARE officer spoke to the class, the students received certificates, t-shirts, and a few students read their DARE essays to the class.
    I think this program is so important and, like most mothers, I pray that my kids will make the right decisions and follow the advice learned in DARE and "resist" the peer pressure that sometimes exists today.  I am proud of my kids and the essays they wrote about DARE!  Feel free to pray along with me!!

I am cracking up. You NEED to make sure that Jacob stays off drugs. It sounds like it could be life or death for you! LOL.
