Today is Maggie's high school graduation.
For all those of you who have been asking, she is not done with school. She will return to Mission high for transition, and stay there until she is 22. But today is the end of her senior year of high school. And she is going through the graduation ceremony.
Maybe it doesn't mean anything. She's not getting a diploma, but a "certificate of completion." She's not the valedictorian, she's not going to college. Maybe we should have just skipped this ceremony.
Not bloody likely.
Maggie is not only quite aware, but quite excited by the whole thing. This is the sentence she made last night on her dynavox.
She put in her time and she wants her day in the sun just like everyone else.
Sometimes she is just like everyone else.
Cap and gown pictures to follow.
