This was a big week for the Clontz family. Our youngest, Laura, graduated and is headed toward Birmingham-Southern College to study Elementary/Collaborative Education. She also had the honor of giving one of the honors graduate speeches at graduation. She says she was glad to have to done it and glad it is over! Needless to say we are very proud of her (and just a bit obnoxious about it--sorry!)
