My son, Jordan, graduated from high school on Saturday. I can hardly believe how fast the time has flown by. Sometimes it seems that he went to bed my little boy and woke up this towering young man.
We had a graduation party for him and made him a video from birth until now. While Tony and I worked on it we became keenly aware of all the changes and events of his life. We weren't perfect parents, we have some proud moments and some regrets, but overall we can see the hand of God over his life.

Tony wrote this to Jordan at the end of the video:

Today, four simple words describe
my thoughts for you.

"You are the man!"

We love you, congratulate you, and look
forward to seeing you through at least the
next four years of college.

In your time at college the most important
thing you will ever memorize is this:

(Inserted his cell phone number here)

I will always be there for you and wish you
the best.

Here are some photos of the big day!

I have two more years before my oldest graduates. Congrats to Jordan, and may this next phase of his life be as blessed as the first!

Roots and wings, hon. We give them roots and wings.
