Graduation Day

Dsc_0198This past week has been a whirlwind.  It seems to always be like every year as the school year winds down.  The most exciting part of the past 2 weeks was Jessica’s graduation from middle school.  It was a big deal.  The kids created their own ceremony.  Speechs, videos, movies, solo performances, etc.  It was really moving.  Made me incredibly teary.  It is such a strange thing having a daughter going into High School and realizing that in 4 more years she’ll be off to college.  How did that happen when I still 29? 

Congratulations to all the 8th graders.  It is a turning point in the road.  The turning point of many other mitzvahs to come.
