It was a very emotional year for our family. As Parents of a SAC graduate for the final time – as each special event unfolded – it was a “last.” The last Homecoming, last Carol Service, last MacPherson Tournament, last Cadet Inspection, and last Focus Festival. Each “last” had extra fond memories attached.
We took lots of pictures. If you didn’t, I probably have some I can share!
Our sons have made such incredible friends who will stand by them through thick and thin and support them through their next stage of development.
The motto of brotherhood was so fitting, as our boys are indeed Andrean brothers for life. As parents, we have also made great bonds and friendships – and we too are part of this magical Andrean community.
The good news is that it doesn’t need to end here for us either. Part of the Parents Guild mandate is to nurture the Andrean Community spirit – engage and stay connected with current as well as past parents, by providing opportunities to stay involved and socialize.
The opportunity exists to keep this community of friendships alive now and for a long time into the future.
