I'm going to break one of my blog rules and talk a bit about my family as I share with you some photos from last week. It was a lovely and crazy week as my daughter graduated from high school on Wednesday, in a very impressive service. It was one of three evening events that started on Monday night, when we gathered in the gym for honors night. She received a number of awards and accolades including a special honor for her achievements in history and government. She also received one of the two music awards and honors as the top student in AP statistics. She also received her cord for having an "A" average throughout high school. She attended a Catholic all-girl's high school operated by the Sisters of Mercy. On Tuesday evening was baccalaureate which, like graduation, was held in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. The photo from the left was taken by the school photographer as I was sitting to the right in the crowd.
Coming into town for graduation was her brother and his family from Utah. It was great to see them. The oldest of their boys had several things he wanted to do: see an alligator, see a turtle, see "my fire trucks," see the railroad museum and sail. We accomplished it all. The week was a lot of fun!
