The Reason I’ll Be Proud at His Graduation

BR is Ready to Graduate

BR is ready to graduate elementary school

My son will be graduating elementary school later this week. For many parents, this type of event is s a sure fire way of bringing on nostalgia. Maybe some baby pictures will be whipped out and a series of ‘remember when’ conversations will ensue. I get it. I’m there too.

Many parents will also wax on about how proud they are about their child on this momentous day. But is it really such an accomplishment? Does it warrant a parent feeling pride that their child has finished the 5th grade (or 6th grade – depending on the school). After all, education is compulsory till at least 16 in every state.

Well in my son’s case, the answer is simply, yes.

And it’s all because of third grade.
