Graduation Day

Today is the day.  Our junior is graduating with all the seniors.  He is one year ahead of schedule but due to unforeseeable circumstances he realized it was more important to graduate from his school than to spend one year at a new school. The above photo shows him (first photo without braces which came off at the beginning of this week) with his Colorado grandparents who flew in for the event.

Until I see him walk across the stage it won't really seem REAL to me.  I'm not emotionally prepared for this event.  We've only been talking about it for a 2-3 months.  We did have a casual backyard party yesterday in celebration.  The party was fantastic and happy which allowed me to just enjoy that moment but today, well, this ceremony is a whole other BIG moment.  I'm bringing a box of kleenex.

What a cryptic post! Congratulations to the Teenage Boy, how incredibly freeing to be done early.

I wasn't read for the first one either...but at least I had an entire year to prepare for it...bringing along the tissues is a good choice.
Congratulations on this milestone!
