So Glad to Be a Grad!
I can't believe it! There I am, eyes closed and all, with my cousin Craig. He's a high school graduate. This afternoon our whole family was there, cheering loudly for our grad. I used to change the little turkey's diapers. Now in just a two-week period he's turned 18 and graduated. I am very proud of him. He is very bright and so handsome. He's got such a wonderful future ahead of him. He'll be going off to college in the fall. (sniff, sniff) I hope he buckles down and works hard. I was the first person in my family to graduate from college, and I want him to do well and have a great college experience.
I used to do the silliest things to this child when he was a baby. I had pictures of him at barely three months old wearing headphones. I used to dress him up, like a cowboy and such. Thanks to my mom, I used to pull him around my house in a box when he was a toddler. I'd take him out for lunch and to Wal-Mart where he'd always get a toy or a treat. When he got to high school, I helped him with many essays. I never minded it, not one bit. I love this crazy kid so much that I'd have done anything.
Congratulations, Craig, and good luck in the future. I know you will make all of us proud!
