as i may have mentioned before, the word "culminating" comes up a lot in these crazy schools my kids attend. this week we went to boo's culminating event, which was really pretty awesome and involved science fiction and imaginary planets and other assorted cool details.

also, we went to artemis's high school graduation! it was funny, celebratory, and poignant. but the emphasis was on "funny," and as a result, i only cried a very little bit.
if you look very very closely at the above photograph, you can kind of make out artemis graduating.
