It's hard to believe I am now the mother of a high school graduate. I will swear that adorable baby boy was just born the other day, yet on Thursday night he walked with the Skyline High School Class of 2007. Wow!

As graduations go it wasn't too bad (I expected a big snooze fest!).The kids marched in to the tune of "Pomp and Circumstance" which quickly transitioned in to the "Theme From Star Wars". The student speeches were actually pretty darn good, and (thankfully) the administrators weren't too long-winded. It's a big school, so reading all the names actually took a while.

While they distributed the diplomas, my husband relied on modern technology to break up the monotony. He started text messaging Matt:

"It could be worse... it could be me in that robe."

"We're going to find a smaller school for your sister!"

"Are they going around again?"

At some point Bob pretended to be propping his eyes open, and Sarah took a picture with her camera phone and sent it to Matt.

I guess my family is a little loony!

You guys are a scream and a good looking bunch to boot.
Congrats to your son and kudos to your husband on using his time wisely.
