Well my youngest son turned 18 yesterday and graduated from high school tonight. Kind of a sad time but one of excitement for the future. He will be off to college soon, moving on in his life as a young man.

I don't really feel all that different today. Just another milestone in his life. soon he will be getting married, having kids, owning a home, and on and on.

Tonight he will be at Sober Grad Night with the majority of his graduating class. SGN is a party-like atmoshere for the students, supervised by parents and teachers in a fun environment. the students are bused there after the graduation ceremony and back from the location in the morning. He will probably sleep most of the day tomorrow.

Tom - they grow up so fast and before you know it they are off to collage. Congratulations to him and you on this big day! My son graduated a year ago and my step-son just graduated last week. The good news is - we see them as much if not more and they start to realize we may just  know a thing or two that they don't! They actually begin to listen to our advice - that is really the indication that they are really growing up! BTW - he's a handsome guy!

Thanks Maureen, it's a safe place to be.

You can't help but think about the future of these kids on a night like this Anne, it's in the air.

Great movie Phil, thanks.

It is an exciting time Debbie, looking forward to the changes.

Congratulations to you too! They do listen more once they are gone that's for sure. Thanks for the kind words Kristine.

Tom - congratulations to your son and to you and your wife as well! What a handsome young man!!! My last to graduate was both a happy and sad moment.  Enjoy this summer with him before he goes off to college.  That was really tough for me.
