Rachel Graduates

Rachel's high school graduation has kept me away from the keyboard this week and I've only just now managed to find the time to upload the pictures we took over at Facebook for the family to share. She still has some school days left to go - a quirk in the ceremony schedules meant that her ceremony was this past Tuesday but her actual last day of school won't be until this Tuesday.

We're so very proud of Rachel and more than a little sad. Yeah, yeah, it seems like yesterday and all that stuff but you know what? It's true. It does seem like yesterday that she marched her way into her kindergarten classroom on that Fall day 13 years ago and started her school career. There've been a lot of ups and downs since then but, man, have those years have simply flown by. Well, it's the way of the world and that's the way things are supposed to be - she's been growing up and away from us ever since she was able to toddle around on her own. One thing has remained constant over the years: the blessings she's brought us have never ended. Never. We don't know yet what her next adventure will be but we know it'll be an interesting one. And we'll be standing by to give her all the love and support she'll need and more than she probably realizes.

So, here's to Rachel.
