Who's got an awesome dad? YOU'VE got an awesome dad.

That’s recent high school graduate Brenna Martini. Why is she holding a Dr. Seuss book? Read on!
I graduated High School this week. When my Dad said he had a present for me I thought I was getting some cheesy graduation card. But what I received was something truly priceless. Following the ceremony he handed me a bag with a copy of Oh the Places You'll Go by Doctor Seuss inside. At first I just smiled and said that it meant a lot and that I loved that book. 
But then he told me "No, open it up." ...On the first page I see a short paragraph written by none other than my kindergarten teacher. I start tearing up but I'm still confused. He tells me "Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I've gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book." 
He managed to keep this book a secret for 13 years, and apparently everyone else in my life knew about it!
