Another Milestone

Last night was Prince HockeyFan’s graduation from elementary school. He’s now a ninth grader about to start high school in the fall.

Time, it goes by so quickly! Watching his whole class sitting up on the stage last night – some of them, at 14, looking rather grown up, some looking like they are still kids… I think back to myself at 14, remembering how awkward I was, how grown up I wanted to feel.

HockeyFan has worked so hard this year in school – and didn’t stop doing so once his high school acceptance came in. Some kids would be content to say that they achieved their goal (place in high school of their choice) so they can sit back and rest on their laurels.

Not HockeyFan. Every day he put as much effort into his studies as he could. Now he gets the whole summer to relax and then prepare for high school.

Three sons in high school now. Three!! How is that possible when just yesterday they were so small?

This is HockeyFan when he was a year old…
