I promised I wouldn't cry, that I would remain stoic, but as "Pomp and Circumstance" started up and the kids made their way out, smiling widely in their crisp white robes, searching and waving at family, I felt a little weepy. Then they showed a 7-minute collection of photos from the past year set to sad country songs and I couldn't help but cry!
The kids lined up and as we searched the crowd for Sean, he found us, and "losered" us and the rest of the audience for a solid 3 minutes. We, appropriately so, held up our own loser Ls for him, as the crowd tittered. My sister-in-law leaned over and whispered, "I feel like we are tributes in the Hunger Games!" That automatically made it way cooler!
The weekend ended with Sean losing his very first tooth, as if I needed more evidence that he is growing up way too fast! He spent the night Saturday with his grandmother and when we picked him up Sunday, we didn't even get to the front door before he rushed out to show us. Of course, I had no fancy tooth fairy magic a la Pinterest, but since he swallowed the tooth during breakfast, I don't think he will mind if he just gets cold hard cash without a lot of glittery fairy dust ;)
