Last weekend, my daughter Lexi graduated from high school! Huzzah!
In all the last year of getting ready to send her off to college, it only very recently hit me that she was about to be a high school graduate. Wow—when I thought about that, somehow it seemed more profound and life-changing than merely (!) heading off to college! To celebrate, we took her out and got her a new laptop computer, which—by the time she leaves for college in August—she will have configured to her taste. (It’s also given me my first glimpse of Windows Vista, which at first glimpse doesn’t look all that different from Windows in Days of Yore.)
You go, girl!
(While her sister follows quietly at a distance, plotting her own course into the future….)
