I love this every single year, congratulations to the Class of 2021.

Our high school, Central Regional in Bayville, every year encourages parents to hang their graduating student on their fence up and down the front of the school.

They are so awesome. So many of the signs this year have baby pictures with their graduating pictures on the banners. Some of them have where the graduate will be going to college.

I just think this is the coolest thing. Do most high schools do this?

Every time we drive by, Abby says, "She can't wait to hang her sign." I can't believe how time flies, she'll be a sophomore this coming year. Like many parents are thinking right now, "How did this come so quickly".

A couple of my friends have their kids graduating from Central and I just can't believe it. I still remember them running around and jumping in my pool with swimmies on, now they're graduating. These signs mean everything. I'm so proud of all of them.

Within the next week or so, the signs and the banners will be all over the place near Central Regional High School, give a "beep" as you drive by for the Class of 2021. They've had a hard year of masks, sports cut in half or no sports at all, school only half the time, but they will have a graduation ceremony and that is awesome. Compared to last year's class, the Class of 2021 is lucky. We're getting closer and closer to some kind of normal.

To all the Mom's and Dad's I see hammering your graduates signs and banners, "Thank you" for sharing a little bit of your joy with us. And to the Class of 2021, we love you, you are strong, and you will soar high.
