his last day

I never thought that when I walked Meghan into George C. Round Elementary School in Manassas, Virginia in 1999 to begin her first day of kindergarten that our last day of school would take place here in Fayetteville, Arkansas with a son roaring off to his last full day of school at Fayetteville High School on the back of his motorcycle. 

Never in a million years. 

And yet, here we are at the finish line at last. 

It's going to take a few days for me to wrap my head around that.
