Okay, before you panic about the title,
and before I link up with Jenny Matlock ,
I better clarify that "Bombers" is the mascot name for our local high school!
|A fighter plane sits mounted near the front door.|
|Parents wait outside the gymnasium as the graduates don their caps and gowns.|
|The procession begins with honor graduates leading the way.|
|Former teachers line the pathway as the class marches to their seats.|
|When the last graduating senior is in place,|
the student led ceremony begins with the pledge to the flag...
|Hugs and handshakes...|
|Finally - Diploma in hand!|
|...And before the last graduate receives her diploma...|
|The celebrating has already begun...|
Beach balls fly...
|The graduates of the class of 2013 are presented...|
Caps go sailing into the night air...
|Family and friends rush onto the field to congratulate the graduates...|
|Hard work has paid off...|
|And there's a little clowning around!|
Is that a hint of sadness on this grandmother's face?
Or is she just worn out from all the festivities?!!!
Maybe it's both!
Sadness because of how quickly the time has passed!
Seems like only yesterday I was holding this boy as an infant,
beaming as only a proud nana could!
also a little tiredness!
It's hard to admit that my body is not as young as it used to be,
and that I don't have as much energy as I once did.
Live your life well, grandson!
Life passes so quickly!
Make every moment count.
Make wise choices!
Know that you have family behind you,
and always wanting the very best for you.
I guess the wisest man who lived summed it up well with these words:
"Young people, it's wonderful to be young!
Enjoy every minute of it.
Do everything you want to do;
Take it all in.
that you must give an account to God for everything you do."
Congratulations to the Graduates of 2013!
