Ty's Graduation and Eagle Scout Court of Honor













Ty is now a high school graduate...sigh. It is something I try really hard to NOT think about. It just gets me misty each time I do. He actually graduated 2 1/2 week ago and the reason I haven't posted until now was not the misty eyed thing, but rather that I simply didn't have any pictures to post until now. It wasn't for lack of taking pictures, either. We took hundreds of pictures of these two events, but unfortunately my memory card went on the fritz and in the middle of viewing them, all of a sudden they were GONE...ALL gone. Ugh! We tried to recover them in every way we knew how, but NOTHING. Double UGH! My daughter just posted some pictures she took of these two events on her blog, so I basically borrowed these from her. Thank You Angela. Both events were really lovely. We had the Eagle Court of Honor on May 20th and the graduation was on May 21st. I made it pretty well through the court of honor until we showed a slideshow of Ty through the years...yep, we could have called it Ty through the tears after that. At the graduation the minute they played Pomp & Circumstance and all the graduates started entering the auditorium got me going. I'm getting choked up now just thinking about it. It's probably better that I've had a couple of weeks before I posted these pictures...or I would have been a blubbering mess all over again.
