Reese Witherspoon is going to be the mom of a middle schooler soon!

The 40-year-old actress posted an Instagram Saturday with her 12-year-old son Deacon after he graduated from elementary school. She also documented the day’s festivities on her Snapchat on Friday.

The photo, captioned “Off to Jr High! Yay, Deacon! #proudmom,” showed the mother-son duo looking smiley and summer-ready.

And, of course, Witherspoon was rocking one of her very own pieces from Draper James.

Deacon is Witherspoon’s second child with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe. The former couple also have a daughter, 16-year-old Ava. Witherspoon also has 3-year-old son, Tennessee, with husband Jim Toth.

Handsome son and adorable daughter! As to “not a fan” – why shouldn’t he or any other child celebrate grade school graduations?! It’s a right of passage and has nothing to do with the uniqueness of high school graduation! There’s always a killjoy in comments.
