IT IS OFFICIAL!!!

Last night at approximately 7:45 eastern time, Son2 strolled across the stage (so far away from where we were sitting that he was mostly a maroon spot on the horizon!) and collected his high school diploma. It is exciting when any kid reaches that milestone. For a kid who struggles with asperger's syndrome and a few other complicating factors, it was truly momentous. An achievement for him, for us, and for all those who have helped him along the way.

Congratulations!! We love you!!!

WOOT! Congratulations to ALL of you! I contend that graduations are NEVER just about the graduate; there are so many people supporting and encouraging that person that, really, graduations should celebrate the entire village.
