Alex and Alli graduate!

Wow, what a whirlwind. I knew this day would come, but I was afraid it might be a real struggle getting there. Alex is so smart, but I am afraid he has inherited my "throw responsibility to the wind" attitude and he followed in my footsteps with regard to graduating high school. He almost didn't make it (like me!) I am glad to say that he got his $%# together and was able to walk across that stage. Alli is his girlfriend and as most of you who read my blog know, she has a little boy named Boston. I am so proud of her for finishing high school and for all of her plans for the future, she is truly a great mom!
What a cute couple! Before walking out on the floor.
Here I am with my "baby". Yes, I started boobing. I AM the mom!

Here is Alex with his dad. I love that they are the same height. Alex is tipping his head down a bit so it looks like G.J. is a little taller.


Here is Alli with her parents. Notice Boston is looking at me! I was making funny faces at him so he would smile.



My grandparent, and my parents came to the grad. Tim was too shy to get in this group pic. Poor Toph, we should have had Alex pic him up!


Tim made me take Alex away so he could have his pic taken with him. So shy!
Here is the little family! Notice Boston is still looking at me! (I am not proud or anything!)


This is my favorite pic. They are about to go up on stage and receive their diplomas. It is always easy to get good pics when people are so happy. Congratulations guys! I love you more than you know!
