some people refer to my alma mater as a cult. those people are usually haters who did not attend Walnut Hills High School, one of the best high schools in the country. it’s one of the reasons my east coast husband will live in cincinnati – so his kids can attend. after running into a high school friend of mine at his work in new jersey 20 years ago, he started to understand that Walnut is special.
well, we have a daughter who is a senior, and she’s about to graduate from this amazing institution. i’m so proud of her. so today, i carried the bag she chose for me last weekend that i rejected, and took these photos at her senior ensemble concert held earlier this evening. (bag: goodwill, $8) this is a new wing of the school – when i attended, it was known as the annex – language classes, honors, and lest i forget – typing class. it’s so beautiful now, and i’m happy that these kids have a beautiful school in which to learn and hang out with friends.
high school was a wonderful time of my life. i did honors and choir, yet i wasn’t a total nerd. i had a great 6 years. i have no desire to go back, or have doovers. i’m just so thankful and glad my kids are there. this year was a fun year with one as a senior and one as an effie – that’s 7th grader to you civilians. so i’ve got 5 more years to embarrass the crap out of her! whoooooooooo! go Walnut!
