End of an era

This week marks the first week in 10 years my son has not attended the University of Arkansas.

He has had a great run. 2 majors, 2 minors, and 2 masters. Not bad considering his "gene pool".

He will be heading to Le Mans, France to teach at the University for a year.

Sorry for the "bragging", but that is what parents do.

Your son is to be congratulated for his excellent academic achievements, and you are to be congratulated for raising him in such a way that he is achieving his goals.

PS - Bragging about children is always acceptable in my book.

Are you grieving just a little bit? When our children leave there's a bit of an empty spot in our hearts.

But, of course, you now have a wonderful place to go visit!

You have every right to be a proud papa:-) The very best of luck to your son in his future career!! Both my sons finished university and moved out...glad to say they're both settled in good paying jobs in their field so mama doesn't need to worry as much:-)

Congratulations Papa, you have every reason to be proud of your son and bragging is always what us parents do best.

Wow!! Ditto all of the above.

He sounds like a son to be proud of, and you go right ahead and brag. It's perfectly acceptable for parents to do that in my book :)
He must speak French really well!
I think he comes from a great gene pool. I know his dad is an excellent thinker, anyway!
Congrats to your son and his mom and dad too, for doing such a good job.

Brag all you want to. It sounds like it is merited.
