Families have different ways of celebrating when a child graduates — eating at their favorite restaurant, beach vacation, special lunch at lolo's house.
None of that is happening at least how we used to know it because of the COVID-19 pandemic. So it is safe to assume most parents whose kids are graduating this year (whatever grade level) are extra emotional.
Hayden Kho is one of the dads whose daughter has reached a new milestone. Yes, Scarlet Snow has finished kindergarten!
Hayden shared a photo of Scarlet wearing a toga and the little girl is looking all grown up at 6 years old.
Hayden couldn't help but remark how time flies so fast. He added he was very proud of Scarlet, but he was also feeling "melancholy." Like many parents, Hayden wondered: Had he done enough?

"Life involves a lot of challenges, struggles, and compromises. Lord, please keep me from tampering with the inviolables."

Your child's graduation is also your milestone — you have done your very best. Fighting, moms and dads!
