2008 Grade 8 Graduation

Today was one of the greatest days of my life. My son (my baby) graduated from Grade 8 this evening. It was quite the occasion. It is hard to believe that he’s off to high school. Where did the years go? He was valedictorian tonight and he and his co- valedictorian gave a very heartfelt speech.

In addition to being named valedictorian, my son also made the academic honors list and received the arts award. I’m so very proud of him. I know that he will excel in anything he puts his mind to. I hope that the next four years will be rewarding. He certainly works hard and deserves happiness.

After the ceremony we went out for Chinese food then dropped him off at the hall for his school dance where we’ll be picking him up shortly.

I just wanted to get my bragging rights as a Mom in.
