The only point I was emotional is during the awards ceremony. My daughter is like me--she works fairly hard for every "B" she gets. She's not a star athlete. Most of the awards ceremony was dedicated to scholarship winners going to Catholic high schools. There were approximately five awards, however, that were voted on by peers. My daughter won the "Nicest to Everyone" award. I was overwhelmed with joy and pride for her and the choices she has made.
Now that we've settled into summer, I wonder when I have to have the talk with her about how nice girls finish last--that is what I am currently going through, but that's another post.
