My oldest just turned 17, so even though we haven't kept up with typical grade levels and all that, after this year I'll consider him "graduated". It is so exciting but at the same time I'm scared for him. These are such uncertain times and work in our area is so hard to find. He is still undecided about what to do. That's okay, though.

And, I gotta admit.... there is quite a bit of pressure on his father and me now. I've always said the proof of how we're really doing with raising our kids would be when we see how they do as young adults. And now, we're almost there, with one of them at least. Eek!

It's so hard to be 18 and suddenly have to choose "what you want to be when you grow up". I don't know a single person who is doing today, what they thought they'd be doing back when they were making choices at 18. I'm sure he'll be fine.

... and you're not done yet. You know what they say, a kid knows "everything" until they hit 19, and then suddenly they realize they don't know anything at all. He'll be leaning on you more and more, I bet. (It's amazing how smart parents become after their child hits 18... so I've been told! )

The only soon to be graduate in my house is me (next May I will graduate with my bachelors in elementary education), lol.

I agree with Chrystal though, your not done yet! I have a feeling he will still be 'learning' from you and leaning on you for awhile still
