We celebrated a milestone last night.  Our oldest graduated from 6th grade.  They really do 6th grade graduation up big here.  Pomp and circumstance.  Speeches.  Musical selections.  Professional pictures.  Slide shows.  It was a fun night.


The kids in this class are growing up and it’s amazing to see their talents and personalities shine. 

There are so many great things about my boy.  I must admit I’m a little worried all those thing are going to fly out the door when he gets to junior high. 


Like letting me take his picture.


I know there will be tough times through the next six years, until the next graduation.  But I don’t feel doomed.  He still cuddles with his little sister and isn’t embarrassed to see me at school.  Plus, I found this in his 6th Grade Sketch Book.


Ignore the “Smile Die” part.  I did.

The instructions at the top of the page are to draw your favorite place.


It looks familiar.


If things get rough, I’ll just sleep with that drawing under my pillow.  I think we are going to be just fine.
