When Sunday morning came, I went to church. When I came home from church, we got ready for my graduation party to show off my high school diploma. At the party, everyone came and left on their own time. Once my graduation party was over, I went through the gifts and cards that I had received. Out of all the great gifts that I had got there was only one that made a great impact on me. When I opened the last gift, my Grandma and Grandpa Kintner had brought.
