I'm a proud Dad!

Just had to get this off my chest. My first/oldest Daughter Graduated today!!! On top of that today is my wife and I, 20th Anniversary too! What a day! The graduation was held early morning 8 am. So my daughter took the jeep and took three of her friends one was the Valedictorian. Her class was the largest ever for south florida 633 students. Also they broke a record of the highest overall score of 93.8! Im so proud. Sorry folks just had to let it out. Oh my son was just wearing the hat..

Congrats, it seemed like only yesterday my oldest graduated HS and learned to drive my YJ. She turns 30 next month and the other 3 are right behind her. Enjoy the moment and celebrate HARD.

Thank you guys! Yeah it hit me harder then I thought today. While she was up there I was remembering bringing her to the park to go on the swings. People always say time flys by as you get older. That is sooo true. I might sound like an idiot, but for all you guys that have a young one at home. DON'T just think about what you want to do with your child. DO IT! Don't worry about the money, that don't mean a thing compared to the love and memories you'll get and have!!! My dad always told me not to worry about $$. There will never be enough, and there will always be taxes..

congrats on the graduate and the anniversary. I bet traffic was crazy with 633 kids/families trying to get to the convention center that morning. I'm freaking out with one finishing kindergarten and the other entering Pre-K. They do grow up fast.
