Hot. hot and sunny. about the worst possible scenario weatherwise for this heat detestor. BUT. it was only 2.25 hours, i wore a nice light top and pants and took 2 jugs of ice water. It was a lovely ceremony, my kid graduated Cum Laude. THAT was a surprise he hadnt told me!!
Then we came back to Malone and i took everyone (Billy, his girlfriend Sarah, my mom and stepdad, Kevin and I) out to lunch. it was fun, the food was delicious.
Billy and Sarah have gone to see his dad, then then will stop here. they leave Thursday morning for Minnesota. I am going to miss him...i know..hes been gone to college for 4 years. But its only 50 mins away not 20 hours!!!
anyhow..i can take a deep deep breath. I put 3 kids through college (Bill did most all of his on his own). They are all happy, well adjusted, productive members of society..not a one of them has gotten into trouble..they all worked while they were still in high school and all the way through college.
For once i'm going to give myself a small pat on the back...and say i think i did ok. i wasnt a perfect mom, but i did ok.
