The Graduate

Words fail me today. I was completely unprepared for what I felt.

joy - sadness - pride - fear - anticipation
I felt it all.

I think I cried for most of the ceremony as they sang their songs and watched him realizing how much he has grown this year. Both in the good and in the bad, what I would have liked to protect him from but can not anymore.

Even my love for his has changed this year as it has grown so much stronger.

I love you so much Caleb! You are a joy to me.
You challenge me and humble me.

You can see all gazillion pictures here. I couldn't stand to throw any away!
Yes, I was the Mom bawling and taking 3 pictures a second.
