2017年5月27日，晴空万里，Emily 毕业典礼前夕来到高中拍照留念！从学前班到高中，Emily 顺利完成了美国K-12的义务教育阶段，13年间一直在都柏林学区（Dublin School District)学习！都柏林地处俄亥俄首府哥伦布市西北郊，人口四万多，多次被评为全美适宜居住的小镇的前几名！我们2003年搬到这里，一晃14年过去了，深深地爱上了这个小镇的安宁舒适和美国中西部人民的热情朴实，感恩女儿们可以在这样的环境里慢慢长大成人！
Dublin is a city in Franklin, Delaware, and Union counties in the U.S. state of Ohio. The population was 41,751 at the 2010 census. Dublin is a suburb of Columbus, Ohio.
Although its earliest settlements date back to 1802, the village that became Dublin did not begin to take shape until the arrival of the Sells family from Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. Brothers Peter and Benjamin Sells purchased 400 acres (1.6 km²) of land on the west bank of the Scioto River as a gift for their brother John. In 1808, John Sells brought his family to the region, and by 1810 he had begun to survey lots for the new village with his partner, an Irish gentleman named John Shields. According to historians, Shields is responsible for naming the town after his birthplace:
"If I have the honor conferred upon me to name your village, with the brightness of the morn, and the beaming of the sun on the hills and dales surrounding this beautiful valley, it would give me great pleasure to name your new town after my birthplace, Dublin, Ireland."
By 1833, Dublin contained several mills and only one store. In 1970, Dublin was still a small town with only 681 residents. However, the construction of Interstate 270 facilitated a population boom, spearheaded by the acquisition of major corporate headquarters such as Ashland Inc and Wendy's International. In addition, the growth of the Muirfield Village Golf Club and its residential subdivision attracted numerous affluent citizens to the rapidly growing suburb. Dublin was officially declared a city in 1987, after reaching a population of 5,000 residents.
