Yesterday was the day finally. Katie is now a high school graduate.

As a father, I'm proud of her. Her graduation party is next Saturday.

In addition, she got her class schedule for the local community college the other day (along with the invoice). So the next steps are to get a job, and apartment, and a student loan for school.

It has been a very rough ride, and it still quite bumpy. Katie and Diane don't get along at all any more, and pretty much avoid each other. The same is basically true with her brothers.

Katie turns 19 next month - and like the proverbial butterfly it is time for her to leave the cocoon and fly.

I've tried to teach her what I can, but I fear that the lessons she needs to learn now can only be learned on her own.
