Quinn, my youngest daughter, graduates from High School tonight. She’s off to the U of M Twin Cities in the fall. It’s hard for me to imagine what it’s like going to such a huge school, I went to a college smaller than my high school. She’s going to be one of 5200 or so freshmen, over 2500 applied! I’m sure she will be in the top 1% of coolness. We are going to be empty nesters!
Sadly, one of her friend’s mother died this weekend after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. That “courageous” thing sounds like a cliche, but in this woman’s case it’s real. I saw her in the grocery store a couple of months ago. She was so upbeat and positive. They are a very religious family, faith has it’s benefits. I didn’t know this couple very well, they were soccer team mates so we spent time on the sidelines and at practices and meetings. You don’t meet nicer folks. I’m so sad for them.
