My daughter, Maddie is graduating from 8th grade today.  Her school puts on a full blown ceremony and reception. Tonight there is a dance party. But you know me...I couldn't resist putting together a little reception for this special occasion. I feel graduation is a time to give a little advice.  (Oh boy, I can see my 14 year old rolling her eyes.) My advice for Miss Maddie applies to every area of her life..."Be Extraordinary". (Oh my...I even painted a banner!) Be Extraordinary. That means no half ass-ing anything... have confidence... integrity... and at the end of the day make yourself proud and happy... give it your ALL...and then some!!! Congratulations to all the graduates and families who are celebrating achievements this year...let it be extraordinary. xox lisA
