An update on Family and Life... NQR

I've been busy preparing for my son's graduation... yes, finally! The trials and tribulations of grades and GPA's, missed credits from almost forgetten classes, FCAT testing replaced by ACT testing (don't even ask my opinion of the FCAT), along with all the "etc" (my nice word for bs) are all done. My son has graduated. It was an amazing, happy, sad, tearful, and joyful event. He kept telling me, "it's no big deal Mom", I begged to argue with him... as I sat watching him during the ceremony I knew he finally realized, yes, IT IS A BIG DEAL! I am more than proud of him, and love him more than any words can say...


  1. Congratulations to you and your family. I know how you feel as my son just graduated from West Point last weekend. It is breathtaking, isn't it? To see your grown-up child turn into a man and think that you once held him in your arms? God Bless you all.

  2. And don't you all look fine!!

    I think there should also be a graduation for parents. Getting your child through the ages of 14 to 21 has to be the hardest thing on the planet! (And whoever thought to add hormones into the equation needs a damn good talking to!)

  3. Yaaaaay! Congrats to all of you, Karen! It's true they don't realize what a big deal it is. I cried like a baby at my nephew's graduation (he is more like a little brother and a son all at the same time). Not to mention knowing that within weeks of graduation he would become a true Marine. WOAH!
    One momentous occasion after another now! =]

  4. Yahooo!!!!! Congrats to your son and to you two!

    (I'm right with you on that FCAT garbage)

  5. You Did It!!! I know he did too, but it so rewarding to see your son reach for his Goals and Dreams. I know how much goes into it. I have one that will be a senior in collage and one that will be a senior in high school. I have allot more gray hair lots less sleep!!
