Okay, it doesn't seem possible, but my baby is going to be in high school next fall. I've been in denial for quite some time, but it's official now. We attended the 8th grade promotion last week.
Mikaela finished middle school with high honors and gave the opening prayer at the ceremony.
After the ceremony, we had a small celebration of flavored cheesecakes, raspberry punch, and chex mix. We're proud of you, Mikaela!
