Topeka High, my alma mater is also a wonderful school but the student body is > 1500 maybe around 2000 students. It is public and pulls from all over the city. Since she is coming out of an 8th grade class of 26, also private and her older brother is at Hayden, we chose Hayden. She will not however be in the band. This was the deal breaker - she does not care for the band instructer at Hayden and has opted for debate instead. She will continue to play clarinet, acoustic & electric guitars on her own and in the Mariachi (Guitar,Vihuela & Guitarron).
I have to stop and have the priest sign off on her "parishner in good standing" form. Simply states that we tithe, volunteer and go to church on a regular basis.
Ol'man, I am gonna have a good cry come May when she graduates!
Wow, I think in my mind she will always be 3 and her sister 2 - life has been a whirlwind since then!!!
