Another milestone!

I just have to document and share this day. 
Today my son Alex graduated from 8th grade and is now moving into the big leagues of life!
To say he is not excited is an understatement.
Congrats young man, we are so very proud of you, and love you so much.
 I still see the baby face in him, that only a Mom can see.
Getting ready to receive his certificate.
I of course took other pics of him with his friends, but because I did not get permission to post them on my blog, I will skip that, just in case. Certainly respect others when it comes to blogging and posting pictures.
Speaking of which, blogger is still acting up for some.
Including me.  During my newbie party, I either had a problem leaving a comment, or it was Word verification that tripped me up.  Sorry If I missed you, my intent was good.

Is your son extremely tall for his age or are you a midget? He sure is a handsome one!!! He'll be fighting the girls off...or probably already is! My little 14 year old brother in law (yes, I have a BIL younger than my own kids...weird!) is 6 ft tall! My boys are all only 5'6 or 5'7 but their dad is short too.

Blogger is being weird, I'm still having to leave the box unchecked and I'm noticing my blog and many others say "Done but with errors on page" at the bottom. I don't know if that's just my computer or if others are getting it too!

Oh well, could be worse! Have a wonderful day Debbie and yay to that young man of yours!!!

Holy basketball player, Batman! He's only in 8th grade? I would have taken him for older than that. You'll have to fight off those high school girls! :) Congratulation to Alex and your family.

Congrats to your special guy today!! We had a milestone at our house today too! So glad you mentioned that about the pictures. I always want so badly to post pictures of my girls with their friends but don't because I don't know how the other children's parents would feel about it. Enjoy your summer with your boys. I know you will!!! :)

Debbie,

So sweet it is!
You have two good looking children.
Alex is quite tall next to you.

I don't think your bangs look too bad. I love your doo. I only wish I had straight hair. I would be sporting the same look.

Congrats to your son! Have a safe trip tomorrow. How sweet to be getting together with Kim.

He's going to be a charmer. Watch out you will have the girls giggling on your front steps really soon, if not already.

I, too, am having the blogger nasties going on here. Hope they get it fixed soon. But, did you see the news article about some Chinese Hacker braking in the Google on the government accounts. Guess they have their hand full with more important stuff than us lady bloggers.
