The Graduate

Ruby Fry graduated from Lopez Island Elementary Kindergarten on Thursday. As I watched her receive her diploma I imagined 12 years from now, when she’ll be graduating from high school. I know that moment will come before Kristine and I are ready for it. Or will it? Tonight at the dinner table Ruby and I discussed the morning’s graduation ceremony. I remarked about how one boy received an award for the best attendance record (only 7 days absent). Ruby responded, “Yeah, but I threw up at school less than anybody else.”
