Both of my boys graduated last week! My oldest son from high school, my youngest son from middle school. In September my boys will be starting on new adventures in life. I think they are very well prepared.
Austin will head off to college in August. He will be attending his top choice school, 6 hours away, with an eye towards majoring in Biochemistry. I will miss him so much. This past year has been a difficult one for our family. We have all changed. I wish that we hadn’t had to go through this, but I know that my sons will be better men for it. They have matured in this year and we have all come closer together. Austin’s caring and loving heart has helped me through some difficult moments. His caring and loving heart has helped his sister through difficult times. I will have tears when I leave him at college, but I will also have a heart filled with joy for the man that he is.
Brian will begin his high school years. He is ready. He has always excelled at school work and I’m sure he will continue. He had a crash course in maturing this past year. I hope that all that we’ve lived through this past year hasn’t been too much. I hope that he can still have a light heart. My wish for him is that he find his passion during the next four years. I hope that he will take advantage of the clubs and groups that are available in high school. I hope that he lets his heart guide him.
Happy Graduation to both of my boys! You are both men that I am very proud of!
