Caleb - Class of 2016

It's hard to believe, but we now have our third high school graduate in the family.  Caleb opted out of a ceremony, but Central Baptist in Bearden (where Caleb has been attending for a while), has a big celebration each year for their graduates.  This was the closest he got to a ceremony.  He borrowed his sister's cap and gown, so the sleeves were a bit small.

I have not been that sad about this milestone as in many ways Caleb has seemed independent for a long time.  But I teared up as he was walking in.  He's still my little boy.

I'm very proud of Caleb.  He's got more initiative in his little finger than most have in their whole body.  And whether it's hiking the AT, painting artwork for his room, designing furniture, cooking on the grill or whatever, he's ALL IN.  

Caleb will be finishing up his associate's degree at Pellissippi State Community college and then headed to UT to study Business Analytics.  He could have started out at UT, but he made a wise money decision to let the state of Tennesssee pay instead of us - I call it "taking one for the team" as it won't be long before we have three boys in college.
