Yesterday, the entire 5th grade at Parker's school graduated from the DARE program -- a 9-week curriculum which teaches youngsters about the situations in which they may find themselves regarding drugs, alcohol, etc. -- and how to say no or walk away. This may be the most valuable set of lessons these kids learn all year.
Parker is right in the middle of the first picture, showing him with his classmates. The second picture shows a very proud young man with his certificate.
