    Another High School Graduation

    Well, today was a big day in my little girl's life. Not only did she turn 18 today (6/6), but she graduated high school, too.

    This was probably THE best graduation ceremony I have ever attended. She graduated from an arts school, so as part of the ceremony, many of the students performed. They definitely have some talent at that school. Also, this was the first ceremony where the speakers had a sense of humor. No dry speeches, here. I felt like I was at a Vegas show. (I learned from one of the speakers, that in an effort to same some money, they are going to combine some of the classes. One new class, ballephysics teaches the physics of ballet. Students dance and perform equations at the same time. Momentum collisions are, well, let's not go there.)

    All in all, a very enjoyable day.

    Congratulations to her and kudos to you for being there. May her life as an "adult" be one of happiness and well being.

    Congrats all the way around.
    Sounds like a high school graduation I'd like to see some day.

    Did your daughter perform?
    Hopefully, it was trick shooting with mirrors behind the back, shooting at flipping coins and such?
