Another one of my boys has graduated H.S. and is moving on. Ben is raring to go! He leaves for Army basic in the middle of August.
Joe's attitude is, "When are the rest of them leaving?" Mine is "Why do you have to move away? You could live here for nothing!"
Ben is MY son. He's the most like me. Which is probably what scares me the most! LOL He's going to be great, though. I know that. He is so talented! I'm just floored by this young man's ability with a camera. And now he is going to make it a career.
The ceremony was at 8 p.m. and lasted about an hour and a half. Afterwards, the grads were loaded on to buses and taken to Senior Bash, an all night party hosted by the parents of graduating seniors. This year it was held at the YMCA. Joe and I chaperoned and I think everyone had a really good time!
It's just so weird thinking of my children, my babies, as grown ups. They certainly don't DRESS like it sometimes (2 different kinds of plaid in one outfit? OMG!(. Or eat like it (Candy bars for breakfast? Really?) But none the less it true. Now I can only pray that God keeps them safe and blesses their dreams. And that they remember to call home once in awhile.
I love you so Ben! And I am so very proud of you.
