It's June (Finally!)

Ok, way back in February or March we realized that May was simply going to be "graduation" MONTH at our house. Between family and friends and our own events, there were several "graduation" events (rites, ceremonies, festivities, etc.) each week in May.

We had our party this past weekend. We had it at the county park just north of town. They have a WONDERFUL shelter there with a small kitchen, fireplace, lots of tables & chairs and AC!! The day included:

Memories. . . .

Family. . . .

Lots of Friends (way more than I can put on here). . . .

Some Teachers. . . .

Food & Conversation. . . .

. . . . and generally a good time for all!

We ended up buying WAAAAAY too much food. (Live and learn....won't have to cook this week as we consume sandwiches and cupcakes!)

We're tired but very happy to have given her a party and chance to say thanks to all her friends and family who have supported her throughout these 13 years of school.

And now I assume life will get back into a more "normal" rhythm, which will hopefully include my regularly scheduled knitting and photography!

[On that note: I have purchased Lisbeth Upitis' book on Latvian mittens which I hope to make for some of the women in the family for Christmas. Keep your fingers crossed and wish me luck!]

[Also I was out earlier today with the Federated Garden Club shooting photos for an upcoming issue r.e. their garden tour in July and enjoyed shooting some fun garden photos.]

Happy Knitting & Shooting!

I'm so sorry we missed it! Looks like a lot of fun! We ended up with about 2 gallons of potato salad and beans leftover. Eating that for every meal got old real fast!
I just pawned off all my extra paper goods onto 2 of my sisters in Chicago this weekend for their kids's confirmations and a graduation next week. There was no way we were going to be able to use it all.
