|Yesterday, Sunday, May 19, I started out the day with a nice easy ride. Blue sky, very few clouds. A NNE breeze of around 5 - 10 MPH. It was chilly for this time of year around here, 45 - 50 degrees; not uncomfortable, just a bit cool. The vision is doing great after the LASIK surgery, I'm still not used to being able to see everything so rides on familiar roads do seem different somehow. Anyway, I just took it easy for 20 miles or so.
In the afternoon it warmed up into the 60's, I had cleaned up after my ride, shaved, even put on a tie. It was still sunny, no clouds, nice cool breeze. I picked up my girlfriend and we went to the High School Graduation of my oldest son, Micheal.
There are a lot of things, mile-stones perhaps, in a persons childhood that the parents get to experience with the child. Many of these I can remember, and they mean a lot to me but I can not remember any of these things affecting me as did yesterdays graduation. I am so proud!!! And to think, I once thought riding bikes with him was the best thing ever!

|I have been through three HS graduations & they all have gotten to me in the same way. I have my oldest daughters graduation from college this weekend & I'm sure I'll be a basket case.

|Congratulations on your son's graduation. I still have three years before my oldest graduates. It's amazing how time flies.|

|Congrats to your son, Grad is an exciting time.
I just graduated in june of 2001. At the ceremony, it seemed like everyone didn't even care about being there, we were all stressed because our exams were only two weeks away! All the parents were taking pictures and shedding a tear or two... and for 4 hours, we sat on stage wondering how the hell to integrate e^x, or where in the brain the auditory cortex was or something... it was kind of funny. The closer to grad we got, the less we cared about it! Does your son kind of feel that way?
