I couldn't be more proud

Last Saturday my amazing daughter graduated from the best high school in the state. She had three cords, two department awards, and received another award from the Bishop during the graduation ceremony. She finished with a 4.3 GPA. She’s going off to the University of Alabama at Huntsville to study aeorspace engineering. I’m so proud of her I could just explode.

The cords are for the societies the student belongs to. The over 4.0 is from the AP courses they take to get college credit during high school.
And yes, she is well aware of how proud I am of her. I’ve told her many times with tears in my eyes.

That is fantastic. I am so happy for you. One question. What does she do with a tomahawk?

There’s a place here that has a range for tomahawks. $30 an hour and you throw all you want. They provide 3 tomahawks for you to throw or you can bring your own. Good way to work out some stress or anger.

Seen that a local fair here last year, among all the carney attractions was a booth with about 3" tree slices hung to throw at, kids were loving it.

Proably makes kindling for camp fires :fire: if I had to take a guess… I always thought tomahawks was really a fighting weapon. Beware young men that girl can handle some steel.

Last Thursday she and I headed up to Huntsville, Al. to move her into the dorm. I tried to enjoy every second of that trip. I was dreading leaving her there alone(or at least away from me). She seems to be adjusting pretty well. There are activities set up for the new students for the entire week so they are kept busy. I left a lot of tears in Huntsville when I left. Both tears of joy and sadness. I know she will do well but I sure miss her. Who knows, in a few years you might be looking up to the sky to see a rocket she helped design. Her major is aerospace engineering. Damn, I’m so proud of her.
