Looking back
I get a lump in my throat
that is impossible to swallow.
So I will write about tonight
and not dwell too long on the thoughts of baby Ben....
sweet baby Ben.
Tonight was a milestone evening
five years
and just like that
B graduated from Pre-school this evening
he goes to Kindergarten in the fall
Baby Ben goes to Kindergarten.....
sweet baby Ben
We all wore our Sunday best
B sported a tie for the first time
He walked into my bedroom after Dad-O helped him get dressed
and I could not believe how old he looked
My baby Boy
He danced his little heart out
sang at the top of his lungs
we were so proud
of our
 sweet baby boy
he walked on stage with his brown leather shoe untied
smirked at the crowd while Miss Collisha tied it back up
and proclaimed 
after receiving his medal and being asked
"what do you want to be when you grow up?"
Our baby boy gave his unique answer to the crowd
sharing his thoughts on his future
not mocking what others said
proving to us
yet again
he is one in a million
our baby boy
and our little miss joined him
cheering him on from the audience
responding so preciously and patiently to
"it's B's night tonight, yours will come"
And it was his night
our baby boy's night

Happy Graduation Baby Boy Benjamin

What a happy night this was!! Your pictures are stunning, as usual -- and I'm so glad you got the one of him standing by that sign! It seems iconic, after the winds (I'm assuming) ripped it away.
