Guess who's graduating from high school today.

I haven’t been able to find my I HAVE SPAWNED post from 17 years ago.

She’s, most importantly, a good person. She’s an old soul as my wife says. She’s smart too - top 2% nationally on her SATs (yeah I’m bragging).

I’m going to be a mess at the event I’m sure.

She is smart and beautiful inside and out!

I am sure she is headed for college with those SAT scores, so good luck to her on
her college career.

I know how you feel- I raised three exceptionally smart kids.

Try not to blubber too loudly when she walks across that stage! What a beautiful child. 🫶🏻

Save some emotion for dropping her off at college. That’s what ruined me. So many more good times are coming.

This is almost always a team event.

She would probably get along famously with my step-grand, who is also graduating this month. I won't list her accomplishments, because this is your daughter and your thread, but she is also a superstar, but here is the current highlight.

Got into every uni she applied to, and her first choice not only welcomed her enthusiastically, but gave her an $86,000 scholarship that she didn't even know existed. It's undecided yet, but she will be starting out at either the beginning of second year, or the second semester of second year.

She did first year by extension classes along with her spectacular grad year.

And, what I hope will be a bit of good news for all of us, she is planning to be an investigative journalist.
