As we wrap up 2010 and start the new year, we also come to the half-way point of the school year. My oldest daughter is a senior, so this year there have been a lot of "lasts". The last first day of school, the last football game, the last homecoming dance.
She has worked hard and as a result has some incredible opportunities in front of her to choose from. Some may keep her close to home, others could be life-changing - for all of us. As I packed away the Christmas stuff this year, I put a few ornaments aside to send her, wherever she may be next year.
We both know that in a few short months there will be just as many "firsts", but the "lasts" are still hard.
