Last Day of School

This morning Grace headed off to her final day of school.

When I look at the picture of her first day of school and see how much she has changed...well, she hasnt' really. She's the same height she was when she began school.
Grace started to school as a sophomore and has faithfully (for the most part) attended school for three years.

She's packed a lot into those three years, and was crying again just last night that she isn't ready for it to end. She's been in four school plays. She's been in choir and Singers (glee club). She was high point winner on her swim team all three years. She has canoed and gone caving. She's been a camp counselor for the fifth graders. She's made friends and even a few enemies.
I think she would consider it a success, even if there are things she might have changed. And when she walks across the stage to get her diploma, we'll cheer as if she had slogged through 12 years of school.
