We are so excited to see you graduate tonight. We know know how hard you have worked for this day. Learning does not always come easily for you, but please know the effort and concern you consistently put forth has taught everyone in your life something incredibly important. You have taught us how crucial it is to always try your best. How important it is to have energy and enthusiasm for not only what you love, but for your responsibilities too. We are so ridiculously proud of you and love you more than anything.
(Tonight Mac has his very first graduation ceremony. His school does a dinner and each graduate gives a speech. I haven't heard his yet (my mom worked on it with him so it could be a surprise), but I know it's about creativity. I have two packs of kleenex ready.)
