Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.

This was our last night of high school ... Sabrina graduated this afternoon, and that was the final, final, final school activity for this year. There's been a flurry of activity in the last few weeks -- last concerts, year-end recitals, meeting this, meeting that, you name it. And now it's done. We -- all of us, kids and parents -- now graduate to new and different things.

The graduation ceremonies are held at, of all places, Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks. Since the venue isn't exactly intimate, they use that big ol' screen to show the kids as they pass by. Here's Sabrina on the big screen:



And here's the dad, kids, and mom. Don't we look happy to be done? :-)
