The Last First Day

Today is the last first day of high school for my daughter. She’s a high school senior. Can’t quite wrap my brain around it. But there it is.

She is one of the big kids in school except that she’s also a younger big kid. Her birthday is just before the cutoff. There are juniors her age or even older. So I feel a bit more justified in thinking she’s still my baby. Except that she’s actually grown into a pretty cool mostly adult human, and there’s no denying that when I see and talk to her.

I don’t know how we got here so fast. This is only one stop on the journey, but it’s a biggie.
