MacKenzie’s High School Graduation
My one and only daughter, MacKenzie Carlson, graduated from Maple Mountain H.S. on 23 May 2013 with High Honors and a 3.8 GPA. MacKenzie’s High School graduation commencement ceremony was held at Utah Valley University at 6:00 pm.
Her favorite subjects in high school were math and history. Her best friends throughout high school were Kelsey, Ashley, Megan, and Paige.
At this time, she plans to attend Utah Valley University this coming fall to study elementary education and eventually become a teacher.
After the ceremony, Jill and I took MacKenzie to Carrabba’s Italian Grill for dinner.We were accompanied by LaVerne, Doug, Erin, Nash, Sawyer, Wesley, Kensie, Brooklyn, and Cameron.
Reflections and Hopes
MacKenzie is an ideal daughter and has never caused me any trouble or anxiety. On the other hand, I don’t feel I have the kind of relationship with Mac as I would like to; her being my only daughter. However, maybe as she gets older and more experienced with life, we will develop a closer relationship than we have now.
Jill and MacKenzie have a great relationship, as she also does with her four older brothers, which is gratifying to me. Furthermore, I wish her the best of luck in all of her endeavors and a long, prosperous, happy life!
