My baby...

Our last child graduated from High School Sunday. I thought I was going to be ok. I'm not much of a crier at family events, but I teared up as the class paraded into the family arena. If you look at the bottom left hand side of the following photo you can just see him....his head is turned around. I didn't kid myself thinking he was looking for us....he was looking for his girlfriend..lol



And here he is with us... I wish I would have though to take off my jacket, but it was colder inside the arena than outside and I "asked" the hubby to please walk back out to the truck and get my jacket...
My oldest and my youngest...
This is his "twin" sister... everyone knows they are related even though she is 12 years older. They look and act alike.. and that's my son-in-law...

We had a wonderful party on Saturday where I found this graduate sitting on the floor drinking what I thought was his "first" beer. Come to find out he confessed to it being his second.

So I guess now we are almost empty nesters...

It takes some getting used to - but empty nesting isn't too bad.
