The Dude in the Middle...

... graduated from 5th grade yesterday!

Holy CRAP!  Not to make it about me or anything... but that makes me feel very, VERY old!  My baby is growing up... and I couldn't be more proud of the young man he's becoming!  He is wise well beyond his years and is perhaps the most empathetic and insightful 11 1/2 year old you'll ever have the privilege of meeting.  Please give Jack a big "CONGRATULATIONS"!  We're really excited for him to launch into another chapter of his life!

Breathe...

OMG - ANOTHER non-goofy faced picture?!? Good job on not embarrassing your son!

My son will be in fifth grade this fall, but he's probably already more mature than I am. Pretty soon he'll be taller too. I just can't wait until he can be my designated driver - I KID!!!!!

Wow - that's a great milestone. I remember those days. I'm guessing a few tears were shed during the "grad ceremony"? He's growing up! You are too my friend!
Hm.
