Graduation Day

One of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands is, "Graduate" by Third Eye Blind. (Will the song live on long after we do?)

This post will be short and sweet. My baby graduated with honors from high school last week. He's been accepted to Penn State pre-med. I'm so proud of him on so many levels, I don't know where to begin. He's kind, compassionate, generous, honest, smart, talented (plays guitar in a band), ridiculously handsome, and is an amazing son, brother (per Adam), and boyfriend (per Meghan).

Here are a few pics from the joyous event that my Mom, Dad, sister Sharon, and brother-in-law David flew out from Denver to attend. The picture of the two handsome guys are my sons Adam and Ethan:

You must such a proud Mommy! Congratulations! Mine just graduated from his first year of preschool, and I still balled like a baby. Hopefully I can get a grip within the next 15 years! :>)

Amy, Thanks and it was.

Donna, It was pretty amazing. Pride and joy fo' sho'.

Debbie, Thank you so much!

Karen, They are hunky, aren't they? They get their good looks from me, I mean, from their dad.

Ruthanne, He is happy. And so am I to be his mom.

Vivi, Don't let me be the one to tell you that the next 15 years will fly by faster than you can say, "Oh, my baby's all grown up!"

Chuck, Me, too, and you're welcome. ;-)

Tawna, Thanks so much, and yeah, we done good.

Ah.... graduation. What a tremendous event. He looks so happy and proud (as do you all). What a glorious day. You will have fond memories of this for a long time to come.

Big Congrats! You all look so happy!

Lisa, Aw, gee thanks. *amblushing*

Elspeth, Great question. As I wrote in a song a long time ago, "The days just seem to fade away, forever everywhere..."

Robin, It was a special day. I'm so proud of him for so many things. No blessings can ever match who he and his brother are for me.

Jeffe, Thank you, and we were/are happy. ;-))
