Megan’s Graduation

First day of school
“I can’t believe I am old enough to have a child in school,” I distinctly recall thinking 14 years ago when Megan went off to PK for the first time.  As we all know, experientially, time is amorphous with events like this seeming so long ago and yet like it was yesterday.  I also recall dropping her off in the pre-kindergarten class and seeing a girl in the class reading a book and wondering if Megan, who could not read at the time, would be able to make it academically.  I soon realized my concerns were silly newbie parent concerns.

Now 14 years later Megan walks a stage symbolizing the last in a chapter of her life and the commencement of something new.  She is ready to head off to the other side of the pond to go to Calvin College in Michigan.  And she is ready indeed.  She is strong academically, physically, and spiritually and ready to take on whatever life brings her way.  We are proud of her and will dearly miss her leadership as eldest child in our home.
