Brian was out of town so he wasn't able to make it so I texted him with a play by play of the ceremony. It was the best school ceremony ever. Start to finish, 22 minutes! And if that wasn't gift enough they gave you cake! Perfect!
Anthony doesn't like a fuss made over him so he didn't understand what the big deal was. He was going on and on about it for days. I kept trying to explain why it was a big accomplishment but he didn't see it that way. Finally, today I said that if it wasn't a big deal then maybe I should take his present back. Well, what do you know? There was a change of heart! Anthony is much like his father when it comes to being recognized but he is much like his mother when it comes to presents! (He got a watch!)
Congratulations Anthony! We are all proud of the young man you are growing into. We love you!!
