Jonah’s Graduation

June 6, 2009

My youngest son Jonah graduated from high school today.  It was a crazy day. He’s been sick with a cold and was threatening to stay home yesterday but he was a trooper and knew that we were depending on him. The outdoor ceremony was pretty lame  (one of the valedictorians droned on about preschool and grade school and then jr. high and talked about all the same people, you get wut I mean) and then a crack of thunder postponed the event for about an hour and 20 min! They said we had to go inside the gym but not until 1 o’clock. wtf? We went home and got back a couple minutes late but no biggy. Consequently, Jonah was the very last grad to get his diploma before the valedictorians. They had like 6 valedictorians and they all gave speeches and they were so lame except for Ian who is a friend of Jonah’s and he quoted GW Bush asking “Is our children learning?” and then he said other clever stuff and ended with the rhetorical answer: Yes We Is!  It was pretty funny.

Here’s a pic of Jonah after the ceremony. His big bro Austin is congratulating him on the accomplishment. The last one is of me and my boys. (satisfied, karma?) I’ve got a funny vid of Austin that I will put on youtube and include the link. Enjoy!

    oh and I’m not going to say anything about the nose ring, don’t know how you feel about it anyway. I have 3 coming up and Lord knows what they might have or not have by the time they graduate.

    lol, warranton. you can say what you want. I am ok with the “septum piercing.” It is better than tattoos, which unfornately Austin has a few of. I think his piercing adds to his mystique. lol. Some think he looks like Johnny Depp. hahaha

    This is so much fun to see. A friend’s terribly attractive grandson had them and I said to him – enjoy them and know your aunt Jean has started a plastic surgery fund to help you when the time for removal comes. Meanwhile I love you right now.

    thank you to all for your recognition of my very attractive boys. If I could talk them into hiring me to be their agents I would exploit the crap out of them and get them modeling jobs and accompany them all over the world for photo shoots so that no creepy photographers try to seduce them with unsavory promises of who knows what. Thank you all again! lol
