Our baby girl graduated from high school on Thursday! Everyone keeps asking me if I'm sad. For some reason, I'm not sad at all. I am so unbelievably proud of her and all of her achievements and feel that she is ready for all that her future holds.
I told Grandpa Markie what Cali had said about needing money, so I was a little bit surprised when Grandpa Markie brought a beautifully wrapped gift over for Cali's graduation (instead of an envelope).
He said, "Cali, would you like to guess what it is? I'll give you a clue. It is something to help with your future occupation."
I could tell Cali was a little bit nervous while opening the box. What was Grandpa surprising her with?
"Oh, Grandpa. You shouldn't have! A camera bag! And it even has a pocket on the front!"
The bag was a cheap nylon bag. It was definitely second-hand. I brushed some dirt off the front for Cali.
"Thanks so much, Grandpa!" Cali said as she laid the bag on the counter. I saw her pat it once to see if there might be something hiding inside.
Grandpa looked at her with a smile and chuckled, "Open the zipper, Cali!"
Cali was overjoyed to find a card with money inside. Grandpa Markie is hilarious! What a trickster.
We love you, Calz!
