12 long years...

"and this is what I have to show for it?" is what she asked me.

Two elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools (even if she was only at the one for three days).

She tended to be better friends with some of her teachers vs. her peers. It wasn't until the last school that she had a principle who deserved respect. There was a lot of crying about report cards. There was some crying about homework. There was no crying about her graduating.

I am glad this part as a parent is over. The next chapter in her education is really in her hands... but that's another blog post.

CONGRATULATIONS KID! 
the above is a link to a set of photos that captures it well. check it aht!
