The Graduate

Pin It
Birthday Boat #24
Our oldest son will be graduating from high school later today. It is a funny time. I am trying not to be emotional but when I think of him heading off to college in the fall ... it is tough. We are so excited for him ... he is going to swim for Stanford ... so we know he will have an amazing four years! But the thought of our tall son (he is 6'7") leaving home ... it seems like yesterday he was heading off to kindergarten!
On another note, I held the drawing for my first painting giveaway and I am pleased to announce that Pam Holnback, who comments a lot on my blog won the painting. She was featured in my June newsletter also! Here is the painting she won.

Leslie,
You made me think about my kids all grown up and going to college (she's 6 and he's 4 still). That seems so far in the future, but yet I know (and can feel) time passing so quickly...
Congratulations on your son's achievements and all my best wishes for him and your whole family.

Congratulations to your son! It's a mile stone.
I know what your feeling as I'm going through the same thing.
I love this painting. It gives me a feeling of calm well-being which is what I get when I near water.
