Yesterday was Charlie's Commencement ceremony. He is now a high school graduate.

Because these things are, in the end, frightfully boring, I didn't cry. Much. I got a bit teary eyed at the end when they all threw their hats in the air and cheered.

During the principal's speech all I could think was 'Ascend already' but no one I was sitting with would have gotten the Buffy reference, so I posted it on Facebook.

It wasn't a terrible ceremony, though, all things considered, and it was well over by 9pm so that was good.

And now he's done. Grown. Officially a college student. He's enrolled at the local community college, and he's going to be an Accounting Major.

When he graduated from 5th grade, he got a 'Presidental Award for Academic Achievement.' When he graduated from 8th grade, he got another one. And he got another one yesterday. I'm really proud of him.
