An emotional day today:
Today was officially the final day for seniors at our high school. They have a tradition at our school which I think is a perfect ending. Instead of the kids tossing their papers all over the floors and screaming and banging lockers (I've had a past personal experience), the graduates put on their caps and gowns and do a final farwell walk through the school. The under classman line the halls and cheer for them.... ultimately, the soon to be graduates reach their final destination - the gymnasium where the parents cheer, snap pictures and have tears rolling down their faces(thank you waterproof mascara)! My daughter Brianna walked today - and it was a proud moment for ME....she will graduate high school officially in two weeks with honors. She was accepted into the college she always wanted to attend Michigan State University. She plans to study pre-med.
I have been very happily married to my "kindergarten sweetheart" for 20 years............well we actually didn't start dating until we were in our 20's...... Together we have 6 wonderful children. They are 17, 16, 15, 14, 10 and 8. Although, we have moved around often, I am hopeful that we are now settled back home in Michigan.
