I didn’t really sink in until she was walking with the other 500+ seniors around the inside of the Cox Convention Center that this was really happening. I went up closer to take a few pictures of her as she passed by and that’s when the tears came on. Wow, I am old…no, I was thinking I can’t believe this little girl of mine is 18 and graduating high school. It was so surreal.
This is where it really hit me and she made eye contact with me. My lip quivered and I lost it.
