The Day

The day is over.
Party's done.
Grad's new life has just begun.

Yesterday introduced me to babe in arm.
Today a man with wit and charm.

How time flies.
Life passes by.
Hug 'em
Hold 'em
Love 'em.
They'll be grown and gone in the blink of an eye.

Party's Over - Silly string draped abandoned seats immediately following graduation commencement. 

My oldest graduated this past weekend. I'm so proud of him.
The party was a great success and the ceremony absolutely lovely.
I highly recommend placing disposable cameras on the tables of graduation parties for guests to use at whim. I was so busy catering to the needs of 70 plus guests, not only was I unable to converse with anyone, I didn't get a single picture taken! The ceremony was different. Camera was firmly planted to cheek.

My boy! All grown up!
