Last night my son....my only son....graduated from high school.
Here he is with some friends after the ceremony was over. He was so excited, it was wonderful to see him like that.
The day before his graduation we had a family/friends barbecue at my sister's house (thanks Julie!) for him and his cousin Cody, shown here. It was wonderful.
Yesterday morning in church, I was sitting with him and I put my arm around his shoulders. He leaned his head down on my shoulder for the longest time and I remembered times in that very pew when he was a tow-headed toddler with the biggest blue eyes. I started to cry and he whispered in my ear, "Don't cry because it's over Mom, smile because it happened"
