Isn't that just wonderful, and how proud you must be of him.
I just hope you have taken lots and lots of pictures through the years to look back on.
My children are 42, 47 and 49, but of course, I am amazingly still 35. lol

I agree...it goes by way too fast. I'm going to type this comment fast and move on before I tear up over how fast my daughter has grown up. And, now, she just finished her fourth year of college. Crazy! Congratulations!

Beautiful pictures. What a darling little guy, and handsome young man.

Right now, I am in the 'when will he grow up' phase and I have been warned time and again that when he does you will say 'why he grew up so fast'! :)

Hi Tammy,

Congratulations to you and your son. A big day for him! That's a fabulous photo of you - you look so glamorous. You are all looking cool in your 100+ temperatures. Ouch - that's hot! Lovely photos of the doves as well. Enjoy your remaining two weeks before your summer vacation. Wondering what your travel plans are this year... always somewhere exciting. Will look forward to you next travel photos!

Enjoy your week,
Sharon

Lovely to see you and your family Tammy. It's amazing how it suddenly seems those years went so quickly.
My family are all flown the nest now and have families of there own and I'm sure they will too will be amazed one day and say 'Where did the time go'.
Sending you huge smiles,
Angela.x

congratultions to the graduate, and to you and your dh for raising such a lovely son! whats next for him? work? Uni?

The first thing that popped into my head was also as another poster commented the song - sunrise sunset!

Linda said...

Congratulations!!!
Lovely photo of you, your husband and son.

I will be doing this next year - Sarah is the High School class of 2014, but we went through this on a smaller scale this year when her boyfriend of 2 1/2 years graduated and we attended with his family (Sarah was on the field with the Band performing for the ceremony), and yes, tears were shed.

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer!
Kind regards,
Linda in Illinois :)

OMG! I arrived just in time! What a great occasion! Look at the proud parents! Sam is just beaming and so are you...as well you should be! What a great picture! Sorry I haven't been by....we've had terrible weather here but survived it all. Some in Oklahoma were not as fortunate. I've had pc problems too and it's just been a really crazy time here. I've missed you and was wondering what was happening in your part of the world! I'll have to play catch up again but congratulations to all!!!!!

Hello Tammy....Oh, accolades to your son and to all your family.

The hardest part will be when he departs for school in the USA but all mother birdies must let their little ones fly. (Gulp, gulp.)

How wonderful to have a whole life ahead!

Lovely photo, too. Susan
