I love the lion!
And I forgot to do my TUSAL report last week. Here it is, in front of my Emma Bridgewater souvenir Jubilee tin.
I also received a lovely present from Mindi of Joie de Vivre. She gifted me with her Jenny Bean Spring Sampler chart, which she recently finished (you can see her finish on her blog header). And she also sent me one of her handmade needleminders!!!
Isn't the needleminder wonderful?! I love it! Thank you soooo much, Mindi! You're a sweetheart!
Now to family stuff. The boy child had his last week of high school celebrations. He had his prom on Thursday. Here are a couple of pictures -- it was a big group of kids!
And the guys.
(Keep in mind, this was on a 97 degree day. Poor guys!)
Saturday was the boy child's high school graduation. And yes, he performed with his bass guitar and sang with the chorus even at the graduation ceremony.
(His mother is sad that the boy child didn't get his gold cords (the ones the other kids are wearing). He should have had those gold cords too since he was in the National Honor Society. But they didn't give them to him, and I didn't realize he should have had them and didn't complain and demand them. Sigh.)
Here are more pics, one of the boy child with his dad, and one of the boy child with the principal. (The principal made us very happy by managing to speak about the terrible results of how kids learn due to the No Child Left Behind law. Such a terrible law!! The boy child's class was the first to be affected every year of the class's career.)
(Pretend the boy child is wearing those NHS gold cords. lol!) The boy child tossed his cap at the end of graduation so he lost that (he held onto the tassle though).
There were many other pictures taken, but I won't bore you with endless pics.
Mia had to participate too, of course. Here she is, cuddled up in the boy child's graduation gown.
The girl child is still up in the air about apartments. We are hoping she will get a certain one, but still haven't heard yet. In the meantime, the girl child is off on her celebratory cruise with friends for the week.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week. I hope TS Debby isn't too brutal to those in her path either.
For tennis fans -- yay!!!! WIMBLEDON!!!!!!! The best slam of the year IMO. :D Enjoy!
