Senior year is a series of milestones. The clock heading to graduation starts ticking the night before senior year begins and ends when your child walks across the stage to receive his diploma. First day of school. Tick. Last home game. Tick. Mid term exams. Tick. Graduation supplies ordered and delivered. Tick Tick. The time is elapsing but like the New Year Eve's countdown in Times Square, no one really pays attention until the time is almost over. People start counting along when 10 seconds are remaining, not two hours. I've known for months that the end of senior year means Taylor leaving home is real. There are no more finish lines to cross before his enlistment begins. Tonight is his senior prom though. Did anyone else hear the people yell 10, 9, 8...?
