He did it! He might have done it by the skin of his teeth, but he did it! Tuffy's graduation commencement exercises were last night. And boy, was it a celebration on so many levels for so many reasons!
I got there early enough to get the good seats. The ones with the backs on them and not the bleachers like I did the two previous ones.
Everyone made it. And on time. Barely.
It wasn't long. We were in and out in less than 2 hours.
He was sitting next to his besties.
We could see him the whole time.
We didn't have obnoxious people behind us.
I wasn't freezing.
It was my last one. For a lot, a lot, a lot of years. Until the grandbabies start graduating. And then I can just go and be the cool grandma. Like in 15 years.

I tried to get video of them tossing their caps, but I am not that good with the camera. As I am often reminded.
Of course we needed some family pics outside the center
thanks Grandma Sue and Grandpa John for your support yet again!!
Tuffy and 'tana
of course with the parentals
the whole fam damily
And then it was off to dinner at one of the boys most favorite places! Good eating!
And why is it that when I ask them to pull a funny face, TWO of them - I won't name names *cough SplendaLuka -cough* Just can't bring themselves to do it?
It was a fabulous night! I couldn't be prouder of Tuffy!
His brothers pinned him and asked what his plans are next. The kid is holding his cards close to his chest. He wouldn't let on what he is planning on doing. I guess we'll all be surprised!
Congratulations Tuffy! You made it!
