It's been 29 years.
I counted it up yesterday, with shock and awe.
You see, it was in the year of 1982,
that I sent my first little one off to public school.
And now I'm about to watch my baby graduate.
A week from today.
I look back on these past 29 years.
With some relief,
Wishing that I had participated more.
But next week on that football field,
we are going to be recognized as the parents of the 7th and final child
to have graduated from Mesa High School.
And I'll probably be cheering.
And a little bit of tearing.....
For the Army Reserve student athlete/scholar.
But well deserved.
