I've been too scatterbrained to take my camera along but I hope to procure some pictures from the more conscientious parents. We are blessed that our principal is a failed actress with a love for the Bard because she brings him to the children. Seventh and eighth graders studied three plays -- Romeo and Juliet; Two Gentlemen of Verona; Macbeth -- and then wrote their own modern-day scripts. I have never seen a more comedic tragedy. The kids made their own props and a good time was had by all. I'm so impressed.
Today we had a beautiful baccalaureate Mass. I'm the mom who didn't cry when her little boy went to kindergarten or graduated from there. But the tears began to flow as the first young woman came up to thank her teacher for taking care of her. Yes, truly, we've been blessed with wonderful teachers in the various schools we've sent our children to. Some of the children have been together for a decade! And although we were newcomers, we fit right in. It's been a wonderful school year, and I can't believe my young man will be going to high school in the fall ... how quickly they grow up! God bless all our new graduates.
