Michelle's Graduation

She did it! And a good job of it too :) A comment during the party from someone looking at the display wall asked, "What internet site did you go to find those awards and certificates? We could use some!" She has been blessed with both brain and energy. Hopefully she can continue to use them both constructivly. The following thoughts by Richie Cusick come to mind when thinking of Michelle:

My spirit takes flight -
How it soars!
How it sings!
as it rides on a dream,
as it opens its wings...
How it searches each cloud
for a soft silver lining,
And follows horizons where
new hopes are shining...
My spirit flies high - I am fearless and free -
to express, to explore, to begin to be me.
We are fortunate to have grandparents attending our kid's graduations!

Can you believe we have three adult children already? Three that are done with high school?

Thanks for sharing her day either in person or in thought. It means alot to us.

What are all the certificates for? I can't read them. I see one says "Honor Roll".

Kuoppala's & in-laws said...

yep a lot of them are honor roll, the "R" is for lettering she got in band i think, and some are for like concerts and what ever but moost are honor roll. there was a book that she wrote, during the time that liz lived with us in St. louis park, it was called "I was SO Mad" it is a book that you'll have to read! its short and states that she likes to scrub the floor:) -debbie
