The morning of his graduation he was excited that we were coming to his program and that he would get to leave early. The morning was also a bit frantic involving more than one wardrobe malfunctions. The pants I had laid out apparently were two sizes too big, his tie was too short and his shoes were a size too big. With five minutes until he had to be at school, I scrambled and found some pants that fit and doubled up socks for his shoes. The tie would just have to do. He wore it to school all day.
He was a star performer at his program (as seen above). And luckily, I didn't shed any tears. It's difficult at times to see him growing so quickly, but when I think about the boy he is becoming, I only feel pride.
