Today was the last day of high school for my younger son. He only needed to attend to pick up his cap and gown for Saturday’s ceremony. It was quick and easy, a total contrast to his four-year, up-and-down high school career.
Considering that our journey (yes, our) contained severe detours and doubts that the kid would even reach this point, walking across the stage at Toyota Center seems nothing short of miraculous. If his high school gave out letters for perseverance and triumph of spirit, he’d have several on his (nonexistent) letterman’s jacket.
But I guess his graduating from high school and looking forward to Sam Houston State is award enough for us. Congratulations, my beloved baby boy!! We are so proud of all that you’ve achieved . . . so far.
