Graduation ~ The Ceremony

During Ethan’s party, I realized I did not even pick up a card for him.  His gift was his Spain trip back in March, so Sunday morning before his graduation, I ran to the store to purchase his card.  I looked at four different cards and then picked out another.  I started to cry after I read the second page.  I knew this was the one.  My husband came down the aisle and looked at me.  I just told him I found the one and how it made me cry.  He smiled and told me how much he loves me.

I made the big breakfast my special graduate requested and then shortly after that it was time.

 He just got his smart phone at the beginning of the month.
This is all I see him doing now.

 His name will be called shortly!
 I must fight the tears...
Yep, I moved from crying and did not get the shot.

Post Ceremony.  I love this picture of my boys!
They are such a handsome bunch!
 I love this one too.  It is such a great picture of the three of them.
Kera looks good in this one.  Taj was warn out from the long ceremony.
 Miss Madi and her beau the graduate.
 Tod and Joshua just waiting to find Ethan again.
 Alright everyone.  This picture is a good shot of the boys with their aunt.
Their aunt is showing a lot of signs of the family disease.  
She kept it from us this year because she did not want to ruin Ethan's Senior year.
I love this photo of them but look between Joshua and Ethan.
Yep, someone photo bombed it.  I cracked up laughing when I saw it.

Where has the time gone?  It seems just like yesterday he graduated from preschool where yes, I cried when he walked across the stage then too.  Now, I have only a little more than two months and my little cuddle bug will be moving out.  I am going to miss this kid.  I am so proud of you Ethan and love you.

  1. I didn't get to finish my comment. Our caps and gowns were red (not read). It is such a surreal experience watching the kids graduate? Time flew!


Thank you for stopping by and showing the love. I will reply back by email unless you have a no-reply email address set up and then I will reply within the comments.
