I made it through the ceremony without a tear! I almost broke down when the graduates marched in but maintained control somehow. Earlier in the day I went to the school to pay fees and saw chairs set up on the football field for graduation (they moved it into the auditorium because of the forecast) and I lost it! I'm so proud of my beautiful, brilliant girl but, man, where did the time go? One of my first posts on this blog was when she graduated from 8th grade.
