Yesterday our youngest daughter graduated high school. Â I remember someone saying that it will fly by. Â IÂ still remember that little ponytail girl going into Junior Kindergarten and wanting nothing to do with her crying mom. Â Fourteen years of school flew by. Â All those firsts, reading, plays, field trips to all the you’re watching what in high school? Â You are in high school right? Â High school seemed different for my daughter. Â She had a great group of friends and two amazing teachers that she was able to confide in. Â Two of those teachers had a big
I have to thank two very important people. Â Mr. Kelly and Mrs. Gosling. Â I still remember that first phone call I received from Mr. Kelly. Â I was at work, my phone was on do not disturb but for favorites. Â He called me on my daughter’s cell phone and explained she was having trouble breathing and what did I want to do. Â These phone calls got to be almost weekly and varied from she’s had her Benadryl and is sleeping in Campus to she needs to come home. Â There were several incidents that later I realized my dear sweet girlie had lied about how bad her reaction was and should have been epied and sent to the hospital. Â Thankfully Mr. K talked the girlie into going to school in town due to her allergies and parents would be 4 hours away…. Â Thank you for all the help in keeping her alive, really during the past two years. Â May you get to actually teach a class or two next year!
So Thank you Mr. Kelly for everything you did for Se over the years. Â Certain teachers have an special impact on certain students and I think that was you for Se. Â I still have fond memories of my favorite too.
Mrs. Gosling, what can I say? Â I have a son and how he never found Campus and all those comfy couches I don’t what happened there. Â When Se first started talking about about God Squad and things she was doing I thought that’s cool. When I learned that you became her second mom at school I was proud. Â I was happy that she had someone like you to confide in. She’s a better person for having you in her life.
Thank you to both of you for helping in Se’s high school journey. Â I know you’ll both see her again – probably too much.
Sierra, your high school journey is over but as this door has now closed a whole world opened up and it’s yours for the taking. Â I’m so proud of the young woman you’ve become. Â Enjoy your Journey.
