Today was Caitlin's Senior Presentation. This is when the seniors have to present the portfolios they've been working on for the last 4 years and give a speech about...well...something. So her speech was about swimming! I went along for moral support. We were going to meet in "senior circle" and go to the room together. When she was walking down the hall I looked at her but didn't even recognize her because she was in a dress!!! Now, if you don't know my daughter, she's probably worn a dress 3 times since 1st grade. She borrowed her friend Victoria's dress that she happened to wear to school today. Thanks Vic!
After the presentation the panel of teachers talk about it and then grade her. The senior then receives a certificate and they get to ring the bell in senior circle. Ringing the bell signifies that they passed and can graduate. Whooohoooo. But let me tell you just how heavy that darn bell is....it took the girl a try or two to get it to ring.
I can't believe that in a few short weeks she will be graduating high school. I still remember clearly the first day of kindergarten when Brian said to me "don't let her see you cry"...and I didn't. Sometimes I am sad because she is going to be leaving me...but then I stop and think of all of the wonderful experiences she will have in college, and I'm so excited for her.
Poor Conner....he will be stuck having to watch Grey's Anatomy and Oprah with me now! Sorry bud....someones got to do it.
