My Son.....a High School Graduate!

Jeremy in his cap and gown before the graduation ceremony.




Larame, Stephen and Jeremy....waiting to graduate.



Jeremy receiving his diploma.


Jeremy....giving me a rose. They read a fathers poem first and then each graduate gives their mother a rose.

Jeremy....wiping his tears after giving me the rose and a hug. It's a good thing you can't see my face....I was almost sobbing at this point.

The recessional....Jeremy and Denise (one of his good friends).



Whew....it's all over!

Wow, did this post take me back a few years, 12 to be exact, when my son graduated! It sure is an emotional time, I went through quite a few tissues myself but not as many as when I drove him to college! (It was only 30 minutes away! lol!) What a handsome young man, congratulations to him from us here in Maine!! BTW you have great hair Mom!

Jodi said...

It was so nice and relaxing... COngrats again. Fun time. I was so wondering what they did for their graduation party get together... as it was raining and COLD! Good thing you had your celebration in the garage. Is your yard trashed?

Crystal said...

Great pictures! I'm glad you had a good weekend even though it rained. You spend such a long time planning and then it's over so quickly, isn't it? More pictures would be lovely :))

Congratulations Jeremy!!

Oh honey! You just THINK it's all over!! (BWAAAAA *EVIL LAUGH*)
I think it is really all just beginning.

Naw, just a turn of the page in his and your book of life. It will be great! It took alot of adjusting on my part though after my first one moved out for college! I'm still adjusting and learning how to parent an adult male! hehe]

Please give a big ol' southern bear hug to Jeremy. It's been a pleasure watching him living his last year of high school here through your blog. Tell him congrasts for me too will ya' please?
