Boogs Is All Grown-Up

Boogs turned 18 a little over a month ago. Wow! Time flies so fast. It seems impossible that it has been 18 years since his first breath. He made my husband and I parents. It has been such an honor and a blessing to be his mom.

Of course, I forgot to buy candles for his birthday cake. We made due with adding up the number candles we had in the junk drawer. He did not want a party of any kind. We went for dinner at a Brazilian steak house where the waiters come around with skewers of food until you can eat no more. That is all he wanted to do.
He looked so handsome for his senior portrait. 
It was a lot of fun to have him come back to elementary school for his senior walk. The seniors walked through all of the hallways while the elementary students lined the walls to clap and cheer. It was neat to see some of my old students. After the walk, the PE coach had the seniors play with a giant parachute in the gym one last time. It was really sweet. I think I enjoyed it more than he did. 
They looked so big walking our elementary school hallways.

It has now been a week since Boogs' high school graduation. How did it go by so fast? It seems like yesterday when he was posing for his first day of Kindergarten picture. We had to continue the traditions of standing in front of the front door on the first and last day of each school year. Man! I think that door shrank.

There were 613 students in his graduating class. 

The principal of my school was on the stage while students were receiving their diplomas. She sent me this picture of Boogs from her point of view. 

We are so proud of Boogs for the kind, caring, intelligent, witty, and responsible man he has become. We are looking forward to seeing how he spreads his wings and soars into his next phase of life. 

The old saying is true - The days are long but the years are short.
