She twirled and twirled like a greek goddess enjoying the afternoon sun while the wind whipped wildly through her hair. Dad stood just a few feet away holding the reflector and smiling proudly at his little girl. But his little girl was not so little any longer. She had blossomed into a senior in high school (now officially graduated from Clear Springs High School and has said good-bye to All-Star Revolution).
Mikaela, your effervescent personality is so contagious and oh, how I am going to miss you. It seems like years ago that we met, but in reality it has been only a few months. Thank you for your constant positive attitude and your incredible smile. Thank you for enjoying every second that life has to offer with your grace and confidence. But most importantly, best wishes for the most awesome freshman year at the University of Texas.
