    I was so moved by the tributes to these special kids and know they have meaningful and exciting lives ahead.
    For our family this graduation is extra special, as Stephen is the last of our grandkids to finish school here in Austin (3 more younger ones in Virginia). I will especially miss the McCallum band concerts!
    Congratulations to all these wonderful graduates!
