Graduation--Spin Cycle

Graduation.  Not something we are doing right now, really.  But it is something we have done quite a bit of around our house.  I have graduated twice from college, once with a B.S. in History and once with a B.S. in Geology.  Nick has done it three times, once with a B.A. in Journalism, once with a B.S. in Geology and once with a M.S. in Geology. Lots of ceremonies, lots of tassels.
The BS in Geology. Yes, it snowed that day too.

The M.S. in Geology

We are embarking on the graduation trip with the boys.  Bruiser is "graduating" to Kindergarten.  He is so very excited. His teacher says he is more than ready to go to Kindergarten. I'm not totally sure I'm ready for him to go, he is my baby after all.
Then there's Turbo.  He is going to sixth grade. Middle school. I think he's excited and I hope he's ready. Middle school comes with a bit less drama for boys, right? He's excited about the chance to participate in swimming and track.  He's excited about taking computer and french. I hope things go smoothly for him.

Bruiser is hoping to graduate to a two wheel bike this summer. No training wheels and self propelled. Whee! This will make family bike rides possible this summer. 
Turbo wants to learn to roller blade better.  Nice for him he fits my old roller blades.
Graduation does not loom closely in our future.  The little graduations will be fine for right now.
Do you have a big graduation, or just a little one?
Spin it up and link up with Gretchen and Ginny Marie, they would love to have you!

  1. I wish my 1st grader would graduate to a two-wheeler! She has no interest in learning how to ride. My older daughter learned how to ride a two-wheeler the summer before she was in Kindergarten!

  2. Congratulations on Bruiser being Kindergarten-ready. That's great! And wishing Turbo lots of exciting experiences in middle school.

  3. I'm so impressed by all your graduating! I keep forgetting that Turbo and Jude are the same age. Sixth Grade is huge, right? I'm hoping you're right about the less drama thing!

  4. Congratulations on all the small graduations. All equally important in so many different ways.

  5. Impressive graduations in your past. Watching Turbo and Bruiser move toward their graduation events will be equally exciting.

  6. Congrats on all your degrees. That is a lot of paper framed. Best part? No one can take it away, no matter what happens in life.

    I long for a family bike ride also. 7,4,2 does not make it possible right now. My husband takes out the oldest for quick rides around the neighborhood but the other two literally drag their feet on the bikes.


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
