This past Friday was Morgan’s high school graduation. The perp walk:

There were the usual little speeches. For some reason, we don’t get those celebrity graduation speakers here. (Hmmph!) The class president started with, “First let me take a selfie.” And he did.

I’ve spent a lot of time in this stadium, mostly at football games with Weston on the field, so it was sentimental as my third and last one graduated. You know, briefly. I don’t really miss those late nights or working in the concession stand.

Morgan had painted quotes from some of her favorite books on the top of her cap.

She was in a hurry to find her boyfriend afterward.

Morgan’s leaving for Morgantown soon. She’s starting at WVU this fall (not sure of her major, maybe industrial engineering). She has scholarships and grants to cover her college expenses. She’s going to go ahead up there this summer to get a job before school starts.

My, she is all grown up. She’s smart, strong, responsible, creative, funny, and independent. I’m so proud of her.

    Wow! Any 18 year old who treasures words and books as Morgan does is one incredible young woman. Those quotes on her cap are an amazing reflection of an amazing mind. Morgan, you will go far.

    I can see the resembalance in Morgan and her Dad, especially in the photo in front of the slanted little house. Good looking man.
    Well Suzanne, soon you wil be an “empty nester” it will be awful quiet on the farm, I mean in the house, maybe.

    Congratulations to both of you. I remember when my aunt graduated, grandma said she felt like she had also after putting 7 of her own children through school and packing lunches for 47 years. but then she put my 2 sisters and I through some years also.
    I also think Morgan is quick witted and sporadic in some things. Also congratulations to Jennie.

    Congratulations Morgan!

    You and her father deserve much credit for raising these three remarkable, and responsible young people.

    I am very impressed that she is already looking for work.

My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
