DD4 graduated High School last night, Summa Cum Laude. She was in the top 2% of HS graduates in the county, was accepted at every school she applied to. Offered enough scholarship that she will have to take out minimum loans to pay for it.

She has worked incredibly hard for all of this. She deserves it, and I am so proud of her.

I love this kid soo much. She deserves the best that life offers her..

I just wanted to tell you about her..

Thanks for reading.. and hugs,

That is outstanding!!

Academic all-stars should get the same kind of press that athletic ones do...maybe then the country could not worry about staying ahead in the world marketplace, a cure for cancer would be created, and other lofty goals could be achieved.

Huge congratulations to your DD; I know her achievements are the result of a LOT of hard work! Best of luck to her next year!!
