Today was the first day of high school for Hannah. Hand me a tissue, please.


She is now a Lady Knight, playing JV Volleyball at Narraguagus High School.


Today was her first high school sporting event and first ever volleyball match.


She played one match and scored a point right off. When I congratulated her, I called her ‘Roo’ – our nickname for her. She looked around with panic on her face and said, “Mom, not here! And you can’t call me ‘Baby Roo’ any more.”

To top that off, her father and I are not allowed to go to the movies in town with her on Friday night. That’s unofficial teen social night at the Mibridge Theater and her parents are persona non-grata. However, we are permitted to pay for said movie. When she explained all this to us, she conceded that she will attend movies with us on Saturday.

Times, they are a changing.
