Logan’s Graduation


Well the rapidly rushing river headed towards Niagra Falls of Logan’s senior year finally came to the end and I guess we all survived. Wow, a lot happened this year, and wow, it all accelerated and got very fast at the end and then the end came and I guess we were all right.


It was all very emotional for me as my little baby boy that we brought home from the hospital 18 years ago is now a big strapping young man.


He is still our baby boy though except he is going to register to vote next week. 


We were fortunate to have my Sister Ellen (far right) her dashing husband Irv (far left), and my brother Bob (betwsen Logan and Ellen) travel a long distance to share the event with us.


The High School principal, Dr. Burrows, a very nice man came by and congratulated Logan. He told Heather a few weeks ago that they took a risk admitting Logan and he was very glad that he did. We are glad that he they gave Logan a chance also.


And here is me. No we didn’t plan on being so color coordinated.


And one of Logan’s classmates, Matt. Matt went out of his way to make Logan feel welcome when he first attended.


And this is Logan’s Kindergarten teacher from a long time ago. She had her hands full with an oversize class and Logan took a lot of attention but she hung with him. She was the first of a series of teachers from several schools who had a heart of kids and went the extra mile to give kids like Logan the attention he needed.


And this is the Kindergarten teacher’s daughter who went to school with Logan way back when and also graduated from the same school with Logan. She spent a lot of time helping Logan back then and they reconnected when Logan enrolled at the new school. 


Another look at Irv and Ellen. They make a very handsome couple don’t they. They are very nice. Our dogs fell in love with them though and have been down in the dumps since Irv and Ellen left to go back to Colorado.


Afterwards Nana hosted a party for Logan at her house the next day.  Many of Heather’s relatives attended the party as wells as Ellen and Irvin. 


The party was a combined graduation and birthday party and had a drama theme since Logan’s first love is acting and performing. Notice the cake with the marquee.


And the little chalk board like they use for movies. Or used to use anyway.


Several of Logan’s friends showed up and all had a good time. This is where I admit that I am a bad son in law and did not get a picture of Logan and his grandmother together. Don’t you worry though because I will get a picture and add it to this post. One nice thing about blogging is that you can rewrite history any time you want!


And then we sang Happy Birthday!!


I did get a picture of the boy and his mom. They have a special bond that brings tears to eyes when I think about it.

So anyways, maybe I’ll be a better blog friend now. We have been busy lately!!

    A fine gentleman Logan is. May all his dreams for the future hold true…and big congratulations to him…both for the graduation and his birthday. Time to celebrate.

    PS…the blooming bush on my post today is a Texas Sage BUSH…not sage brush. Two totally different plants.

    Great times and congratulations to Logan and to you both. Time goes way to fast I know. Loved all the photos and thanks for sharing this happy occasion.

    Graduations are kind of like weddings. You make plans, take senior photos, check transcripts to be sure the student is going to graduate, order the cap & gown, order the class ring, send out invitations, plan the post graduation party, then BOOM!!! it’s over and you can’t believe that you got through it.
    Again, Congratulations to Logan and the entire family for getting to this special day, and yes, tears come easily on that day.
