Graduation Weekend #2: The 8th Grade Graduation

“The future starts Today, not Tomorrow.”
Saint John Paul II


When your child has attended the same school from 3rd through 8th grade, matriculation to the next level is a big step. No longer will they be the big kids that the little ones look up to. They will be the little-bitty fish in the big ol’ proverbial pond.

Eleven years of parochial schooling is finished… along with a drive that I am more than happy to leave behind! Who’s bright idea was it to send the kids to school smack in the middle of a popular California beach community? Oh wait… that was me.

It was lovely while it lasted, and now he will say good-bye.

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!
