we have a graduate!

My parents made it here on Tuesday night at 11:30. The bathroom renovation wrapped up at 8 pm and the contractor left. I barely had time to clean up, hang some curtains, and then run to the airport!

Today, we had High School graduation.

Congratulations from my dad.

My parents, Tall Son, Crafty Girl and me a little windblown, and Dear Husband.

Edited to add: Crafty Girl graduated from Elementary School on Tuesday. Except the poor thing had to miss it due to feeling awful with a stomach bug. She made it in for the class picture, then had to come straight home.

Congratulations to Tall Son! What an exciting time in all your lives. And I know how busy you have been what with the renovations, company coming, and graduation, but I can't tell you how happy I am to be able to read your blog updates! It keeps me connected and knowing everything is ok.

Congrats to everyone! Norah said that she had to play Pomp and Circumstance eight times before everyone got their diplomas. What a great day! Cathy O

High congratulations to tall son.

Strange. I tried to type "big" and my brain typed "high."

I apparently need more sleep. :)

Love to you all.

Congrats all around. These things are really a family effort. So glad your parents were able to come and be a part of it. Also glad to hear that the bathroom is done!

For those who don't live close by, Karin's gardens are even prettier in person. I catch them on my walk two or three times a week!

Congratulations to the new graduates! You must be so relieved with the end of the bathroom renovation, just in the nick of the time.
