Holy smokes Gut! I hope you're holding up. That is a LOT for one weekend. Why do they have prom and graduation on the same weekend? WOW.Originally Posted by Gutmutter;3484865;

I'm waiting to hear about the graduations that were this past weekend. How proud you all must be!
My son graduated from college a couple of weekends ago. I was relieved that this day had finally come. He did not walk; he went on a trip with some of his friends that he had been so excited about. He went with my blessing, after all of the work that he had put in; I've been having a couple of medical issues, so it was up in the air if I was going to be able to attend, anyway. In my family, after college, your serious adult life truly begins so I didn't have a problem with him doing something really fun for him. I think it's better to get it out of your system, instead of being left wondering about something that you've been wanting to do for a couple of years.
It must be genetic. I didn't walk when I graduated, either. I went on a special trip, too. I get it. It can be important to "get your run out".

Congratulations to your son 'shay! I didn't walk for college or grad school, but my parents made me walk for high school - even though I had finished a year early and already done a year at Northern Arizona University. My mom and niece are still here - Mom's driving my car today! The two trips to the airport on Sat. turned out to be a relief from the chaos. My sister drove and I rode shotgun. The 4 girl cousins and my son were a lot to handle for long periods of time. Some of my garden got trampled, and I was picking up empties and trash and discarded jackets, etc. all weekend, but I think it was successful. The one low point was when my ex brought his new wife to my house after the grad ceremony and my older daughter saw her in the driveway as we drove up and started going ballistic (she hates her for breaking up the family). I had to drop everyone else in the car off and drive her around (she's 23) until we got word they had left. She was crying and ranting. *sigh* But shortly after that half of the guests left and we spent the evening playing cards, so it ended well. Now my grad is off at Hampton Beach with the remaining cousin and the older kids are gone, too, so things are quiet. After I take Mom and niece to the airport tomorrow, I'm going to start a nice, long book.
Count your blessings!
How exciting that for the most part things went so well! Enjoy that book!!
Congratulations Shay and Gut and everyone else who had graduations in their family! What an exciting time.

Congradulations phroshay I know you are relieved that he is a graduate now.
Gutmutter glad to hear your weekend went so good.
Except for the ex part.
Go prop your feet up and read that book... You deserve it.
