I can't believe my baby boy is now a high school graduate. I can't express how proud we are of him - he's become such a fine young man, an honorable man, a smart man, and just an all around great guy! We are very impressed with his dedication to school. He graduated with honors - something my hubby and I didn't do. He will be heading off to college in a few months and I can honestly say, as of now, I am very excited to see him go. Not because I want him out of the house, but because this is what the last 18 years were supposed to be about: preparing him to become a self-sufficient man.
Going away to college, while still a bit under mom and dad but in a remote way, is a great way to begin to figure out how to make it on your own. Of course I will miss him, and his laugh. But I am excited to see him grow into his own.
For now, I will cherish the few months of him being home.
Congratulations my son!
