It's been a whirlwind since I've last been able to post. Oldest Boy graduated from high school last Saturday. It was a great ceremony, at the sports arena by us, 600 or so kids in the group.
Grandma (Mom-mom) came and so did Auntie, along with a couple of my girlfriends...(Oldest Boy has several "moms" that keep him in line - lucky kid), we had a pretty good-sized group. When we sat down we were looking through the program, and saw about six valedictorians. You could hear everyone in the seats...glancing at the program...all saying "Six?! Are you freaking kidding?! Omg, how long are we going to be sitting here??!" I envisioned a screaming bladder (mine), and two small children climbing the walls (also mine). I guess they were told to make it snappy with the speeches, because each one only lasted about two minutes. Perfect, if you ask me.
And of course, they say, "Only applaud during such and such times"....and you KNOW I still yelled, albeit briefly, when they said my kid's name. So much for setting a good example for the kiddies.
Hard to believe he's done...I can so clearly remember the day that he started kindergarten, and how I cried then, too. It's been a tough couple of days for me, very bittersweet.
I love you, kiddo...more than I can ever say.
