My youngest's big day! ***Pics

Today my youngest graduates High School. Boy how time flies! That means that as of this day, I no longer have grade school children and my mid-life crisis can now reach the surface and become full-time.

If someone had told me when I was younger (say around 18 years old) that I would have been able to see this day, I would have told them they're nuts. LOL.

This graduation is of a particular note. When the New York City Board of Education (now defunct) wanted to heighten standards, what was then referred to as the Regents were optional. It became mandatory and testing began as early as the 4th grade. My youngest is the first graduating class that was "forced" to take these tests throughout their school careers..

My hats off to all the Graduates of 2005!

Does this mean that you and your wife will be 'graduating' to a 90 gal tank anytime soon?

Yep congrats to the entire chillin clan. Now that you're soon to be an empty nester, perhaps it's time you started a new brood.

That is a big accomplishment Jc for your son, but especially for you. Parents have their hands full now a days with all the distractions and temptations for kids. Good Job!!

My oldest son just had his promotion ceremony 2 weeks ago. It makes me feel so old though.

Way to go Dad! I'm just concentrating on keeping my 6 year old alive from day to day, he's a little crazy. I can only imagine how I will feel if we make it to graduation day.
