Graduating

We watched our eleven-year-old graduate from elementary school this morning.

I've heard it said that a boy belongs to his mother for the first half of childhood. Then he belongs to his father.

I think he'll be in good hands.

I also had never heard that before, but I can say it is true. My son is 15 and there has been a shift. It is subtle but it is there.

The first image made me sigh in appreciation. The second image made me catch my breath and tear up. Something about riding that edge between letting go and protecting. All those subtle transitions along our life path.
