Love your card, Joey... cute image and the "1" is perfect! I still remember High School days; my "kids" are four school years apart so it felt like it went on forevAH!... and child One went to Upper School (expensive for books here) the year child Two went into High School, nearly took out a mortgage THAT year... oh and then there's University... user pays here... and then.... they get a job and leave home, LOL.
