Another Milestone

Jacob and Izabel at the start of the 2018-19 school year.
Today I'm not going to say much of anything about cycling, so pardon me. See, today is a special day to me. My oldest child is finishing her public school career today.

I'm a sentimental old coot, I guess, but this is probably a bigger deal to me than it is to her. In fact, she is a lot like me in many ways, so I bet she's shrugging it off as "just another day", as I did back 40 years ago.

But I tried to get her to see it my way. I told her to take a bunch of pictures of the inside of the school because she will almost assuredly never go back in many of the rooms and places she sees as being mundane and familiar now.

Anyway, graduation is next week, she and Mrs. Guitar Ted go off to Texas to see Grandma and the Aunt and Uncle right afterward. Then a party upon their return, and that will be the end of marking her accomplishment as a public school student. Then it's off to college next fall. (She will be staying here, it is a local college.)

So, a public "Congratulations" from me here on "Guitar Ted Productions" to my daughter, Izabel. You accomplished you goals and more. I love you!

I'll be back again tomorrow with a regular "Friday News And Views" post. Thanks!

Congrats Man! It's as much a milestone for you as for her. At least that's the way I felt when my son graduated.

Good idea. I never understood this infatuation with going to college far from home unless absolutely necessary. It does little but add to the incredible financial burden a college education can impose!
