Graduation Day

Eighteen years ago we received some unsettling news. There might be a problem. We needed to think about options. Of course, there was no option in our minds, everything was fine and we soon had a baby boy.

A few years later kindergarten came. We had to pry him off our legs a few times, but we made it through.

Baseball came first, then football. Basketball came around for while, but most of our hours were spent waiting for football to end. A lot of waiting.

We had to argue and fight to get into honors classes. After all, the standardized tests didn’t look good enough. Plus football would take time. It would be better to just take standard classes, right?

Tonight Andrew graduates with honors. He finishes ninth in his class. It’s ending of a journey begun twelve years ago. It’s the beginning of a new one.

It’s graduation day.

    Congrats! I love the examples you gave. It is encouraging for me with twin 5 year olds.
