this past weekend my little brother graduated from high school. i can't tell you how proud i am of him. but i will try. 

i am SO proud of him.

they told us not to cheer for our respective graduate, but i couldn't help but let out a little whoop! when they called his name. (they almost pronounced our last name right. half point.)

i got all weepy when i saw him in his cap and gown for the first time on the field. and then again when i watched him walk across the stage. and again when he spotted us waving to him from the stands. and then once more when i got to finally hug him. i'm actually feeling a little emotional writing this now. what the heck. i think if he reads this, he will think i'm a moron.

hanging with the graduate at cracker barrel. it's what we do. 

to all the grads of 2012, in the words of mindy kaling, i hope you didn't peak in high school. ok. congratulations!
