Tonight was Older Son's graduation. Neither my photography skills or my camera were really up to the occasion. Here's a very blurry shot of OS walking into the gym:
But you know, it's kind of symbolic of how these years seemed to pass, all in a blur, over way too fast.
Here he is getting his 'diploma' (because they don't give you the real one at the ceremony, which seemed to really irk him).
And standing against the wall. Finally one of all of us together.
I was a bit ambivalent about the graduation thing. I don't remember my mother going to my graduation. I went with friends and my twin sister didn't go at all (she'd just delivered my niece that morning. Hmmm, maybe that could be why my mom didn't go). Anyways, for various reasons I have mixed feelings about graduation. But we went out and got ice cream after so I'm somewhat mollified. (Doesn't ice cream just make everything better?)
