Tonight's the night. Lisa will walk the stage and get her high school diploma (or a reasonable facsimile that can be traded in for the real thing later). She's tenth in her class. Quite an accomplishment. The end of era and closure for what just weeks ago seemed like a never ending series of graduation related events. No more banquets. I'm tempted to break into a rendition of burp and circumstance.

Lisa has decided to go to Baylor. She's been offered some nice scholarships and it's an excellent school. She never really asked for my sage advice that she consider some other options, but she rejected it willingly. Any wonder she's graduating among the top ten?
