Graduation Day. Page Dec. 32
As I write this, I still can’t believe that I have graduated and that tomorrow is the last day of Jr. High, Belvedere, Robert, friendships and teachers. It seems strange that we’re going to move & we are packing and cleaning & more packing. Today during graduation I looked at the kids & it didn’t seem possible that I would never see them again after tomorrow. Eliseo sat in front of me & as I looked at the back of his neck & thought of all the fun I’ve had with him & with all the other kids & I felt sad at the thought of leaving all of them & yet excited of meeting new friends. Golly I wish I could start Belvedere over again & yet I’m glad its over. Tomorrow ought to be interesting.
From a Special Data page in the back of the diary is this list of
