He did it!

Last night 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"


  1. So cool!! Isn't it the strangest feeling??? I still have two boys to go, but man, it doesn't seem to get any easier. And his statement was sooo profound. Were you amazed? I'm proud you've survived it...
    Just let me know how the next year goes...sigh.

  2. such a smart boy, you taught him well, my friend!

  3. what a great kid!
    and fabulous mom!

  4. Hooray for the boy!

  5. The night of my HS graduation my friends and I gathered up the HUD home signs and placed them in the yards of the superintendant, principal, District office and HS.

  6. how exciting!
    i feel like i just graduated! wow how time flies!


Go ahead....tell me the truth :)
