Memorable Monday Moments
High School Graduation

Technically this event occurred on a Friday, but today is Monday, and today is the anniversary of this definitely memorable event. We’ve been planning for and celebrating Steven’s high school graduation. It was inevitable that I’d recall my own. One of the advantages of trying to go through old boxes is that you find treasures; these pictures were hidden away in the back of my closet. I thought it was fitting that I discovered them the week that Steven got to give his valedictory. I had the same opportunity 31 years ago. (It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been that long!)
