The Last First Day of School

(July 1999/from the left:  Rebecca, Korin, and Katrina)

Well today is something of a milestone for me, as it is the last first day of school.  I know, that sounds somewhat complicated, but it is true:  today is the last "first day of school" for the youngest of my daughters.  Rebecca is starting her senior year of high school today, and this time next year I'll not have any kids just starting school.  Fast forward to late August 2011 and I'll have one daughter in the workforce with a college degree (Katrina), one starting her second year at the University of Scranton (Korin) and one starting her first year of college (Rebecca). 

I don't consider myself old or mature enough to even be in this position, but as John Lennon once observed...

"Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans"

More true words have never been spoken.

Not bad for a kid from the projects.
