Count down to Graduation

In 11 days, Jamie will graduate from High School. He is so excited and if any of you have ever had a high school graduate, you know that he has mentally "checked" out already. For example, like today, he said, "Mom, can I skip first and second period?" We're just going to sit there and do nothing. It is a waste of my time."

So, what would any good mother say? ( How many absences do you have? I'm just telling you....YOU BETTER GRADUATE!!!)

You do know that he is my 3rd child. (He did not go!) :)

But, as we begin our count down to graduation, we would like to say how God has blessed us with this child. Jamie has really matured and done a great job with his education this year. He has received the award of High School Scholar, Academic All-Star, and was voted by his peers, Most Hard Working Senior. Also, he was chosen by the faculty to be one of 10 seniors to be inducted into the AC Flora Hall of Fame.

Boy, we have come a long, long way. As I looked at his Cap and Gown this morning my heart had that bitter sweet sting. He is the last bird in the nest and he is READY to fly. Last night when he was pinching me and standing "way to close" to my face, :), I almost PUSHED him right out of the sweet nest. I will miss him.

Awards night for Richland District One at the Civic Center. We were served a very nice meal.
Here he is with his bling that he receive that night.

Yes, I made him put it all on when we got home.

Here we are with our friends after Senior Class night. We ate at D's Wings.

I am so pleased for Jamie and for you and Kynn. How awesome. A few tears are falling - happiness and tugs on the heart.
