Finished for Friday: 8th Grade

Watch out high school, here comes Drama Girl, all finished with 8th grade.

What this picture doesn't show is the rest of what I saw.  All the same parents I've seen since this little girl started kindergarten.  The graduates aren't the only ones finishing part of their journey.  We're all a little older, a little grayer.  Some are a little balder and a little wider.  She gets the diploma but we also feel a sense of achievement.

And that up-do I promised her for graduation?  I think it turned out pretty amazing.  There's a lot of hair that the stylist managed to wind up in there.

I feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment this week.  Maybe it's just relief.  Looking forward to a great summer now.

What have you finished up this week?  For guidelines to this party, please click the link at the top of the page.  Thanks for joining in!

She's cute.

I finished a tome on the history of motherhood that I had to read in the rare book room of the medical library. Gonna miss the librarian.

Congratulations to your daughter. Jessica will finish 8th Grade (we call it Year 9) at the end of July and they do nothing to celebrate over here like you do over there. Love her hair. It looks very stylish.

As you know, I teach 8th grade and my students graduated last weekend. However, don't think that I didn't notice the moms looking particularly sad at the looming changes that are to be. They have been hanging out with each other for YEARS! It's a rite of passage for the parents too.
