But today it is all about the celebration of getting through it all and standing smack dab in the middle of the light at the end of the tunnel. We will have family in from out of town and we will bask in the 95 degree heat of the day at 4:00 this afternoon to watch Darren put a close to what I hope will go down as the most difficult years of his life. I will take photos, yes. I did a slide show of photos showing his progress through life. If I can take that next leap into geekdom, I will attempt to post the slide show (set to Aerosmith's "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing") to YouTube. And of course, if I am successful, I will post a link to it here.
So in a few minutes I will drop Darren off at school for the last time. He has graduation practice this AM. I will park my ass in front of Starbucks to reflect on the last 4 years of Darren's schooling, and then I will proceed through the day celebrating my son.
Because he deserves it.
