Graduation Day

It's  hard to believe that this day has actually come; our oldest son graduated from high school.  It doesn't really seem real yet, except for the part where we had the graduation party and went to graduation and all that. *Ü*
These were the graduation cap gumball favors at each place setting.

Benjamin, our graduate who graduated with highest honors.  We could not be more proud of him!

Can you see him?  Ya, we couldn't either! Ha!
And a new computer as he heads off to U C Berkeley this summer for college.

  1. Congrats to your son. You must be so proud. You make the cutest projects, Becky.

  2. Congrats to Benjamin! Super job. Becky it has been so fun watching your boys grow into young men. You have every right to be super proud of them.

  3. Wow!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I couldn't be happier for all of you and with such pride! I cannot believe he'll be in college over the summer already, too!!! Beautiful photos and son, and projects, too! Congratulations Mama! Best wishes always!

  4. WOW...CONGRATS to your son & to you, as his mom (& dad); you have so much to be grateful & proud; it's been an interesting journey from child to a young man & thoroughly enjoyed by many! I hope for only the *best* as he continues a new path in life.

  5. Kudos and Congratulations to Benjamin! As Mom and Dad, you have been tremendous role models for him. I'm sure it will be hard to lose him to UC Berkeley, but that in itself is quite a feat. It is not easy to get into that University these days. I worked in Berkeley after college when I started my career in banking. Berkeley is a great town. I'm sure he'll love it.


  6. Wow, congrats to Ben, and to you and dad! What a terrific son! Thanks for sharing pics of the moment with us! You do have the cutest projects eva! Ben is going to do so well!

  7. Congratulations to Ben and his proud family!

  11. Congratulations Benjamin!! A whole new world awaits you....and I am certain that you will do very well. So, enjoy!
    For Mom & Dad a new voyage starts with the first child so far away.....but, don't worry, they all return home. Hugs Maxie *Ü*

  12. Congratulations! I do have a question as to where you purchased the tubes for the gumballs and mini tassels?

  13. Hi Everyone - thank you for your kind comments. The tunes were purchased at our local party store in Boise called Zurcher's. They are 1" x 8" tall and perfectly fit the Double Bubble gum balls they sell there as well. The tassels are from Oriental Trading. They were full size and I cut them to be short.

  14. Thank you, Becky for the sharing your great idea. Congratulations, Ben on your excellent achievement.:-)
