Photos – as requested!
It was a marvelous day – lots of emotions in play, the primary one being incredible pride.
When you see your child achieve such a goal, you know you’ve done something right. You also realize how much the achievement is actually his and his alone. He possessed the brains, determination and discipline to get to this place in his life.
Parents guide and hope. Children take it from there.
And by the way, I didn’t cry - came close, but didn’t. I was too busy smiling my fool head off.
This kid of mine is a character - has chutzpah in spades. (Wonder where he got that from?) It was an incredibly hot day and in those robes, he was sweltering. After the ceremony, pictures, etc., we headed for the car.
No hesitation – he whipped off his pants in the parking lot and changed into shorts to the delight of those passing by. He didn’t even bother being discreet about it. (Good thing boxer shorts sort of look like shorts.)
That’s my boy! Confidence and a devil may care attitude.
He’s come this far in life – those qualities and all the other marvelous ones he possesses will take him even farther.
God speed and God bless.
I love you, Teds.
