I Demand a Recount

May
31

Obviously, the earth’s rotational cycle and the marking of days has gone sadly out of whack because it’s impossible that my baby boy could be old enough to graduate from high school.

I think the charade was carried a bit far.

All that pomp and circumstance when you know the whole thing is a….

….huge mistake.

Impossible.

Downright cruel.

I’m sure it shall all be sorted out soon and we’ll be filling out his kindergarten enrollment papers AS WE SHOULD BE.

In the meantime, my baby, if you must carry on with this bold farce in which you go forth into the world as a man…..

….I hope you bloom.

    He’s a fine looking young man! I know you are so proud, even if you are a bit shocked about how fast the time goes. Here’s to the graduate! :snoopy:

    That brought tears to my eyes this morning. I felt the same disbelief 2 years ago.

    He’s a handsome man and, from what I’ve read, a good one. I can sure see why you’re so proud of him.

    Congratulations! you can count and recount all you want- that boy is well on the way to being a man. And that is a lot to be proud of in this world.
    You raised him right- no wonder you are so good with your animals- you are a nurturing woman.

    Oh my. This brings a tear to my eye. But still how can you be sad when you raised such a fine young man. You can feel good that you are sending a good person out into this world. Love all the pics!!!

    Wow! That’s powerful. It brought a tear to my eye too. Ross is so handsome. It’s kind of scary sending them out into the world, but I think you gave him all the right tools and he will do fantastic! I bet he is excited to get started on his next path.

    I can’t believe he’s graduating either! Wasn’t he just a little kid a few days ago?

    Congratulations, Ross! Suzanne, he looks so confident! Definitely ready to face the world. Don’t be sad – you get to do this 2 more times, you know. Best wishes to all!

    And I love the pic of the goats and “dog” – looks like Pepsi feels right at home now. As does Annabelle.

    What a handsome young man. His eyes are full of wisdom, old eyes. After all the stuff you go through, they turn out just fine, don’t they?

The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
