Precious Youngest took her last final this morning. She left soon after for her Senior Retreat. Saturday is the Baccalaureate Mass and Sunday is Graduation.

The Saint and I each wrote a letter to send for the retreat. I bawled the whole time I was writing so I can't imagine what a mess I'm going to be by Sunday afternoon.

In the meantime, I'm keeping busy. Tomorrow we are hosting a joint graduation party for Precious Youngest and my niece. 80 of our nearest and dearest. The food is going to be awesome and of course since we are Catholic there will be a bar. Hush, we don't let the teenagers drink!

I'll be back with reflections on the past four years, but I'm afraid if I start now I'll never stop crying. Oh, and if you're in the neighborhood on Friday? Stop by, there's always room at our table!

They designed and produced the invite themselves - aren't they darling? Of course it looked better with all the pertinent details, but still!

I'm having a hard enough time imagining my older girl heading off to upper elementary in the fall, so I can't imagine what you're going through.

Just remember to wear waterproof mascara!

Shortman came home on Wednesday and before he came up to the office, he slipped on his cap and gown.

I cried.


He still has 10 more days.

And they did an amazing job on the invite!

Isn't it fun when cousins get to celebrate things together.
My sister had twins, 10 weeks after my daughter was born, so we had a big party when the 3 of them graduated from high school.

Cute invitation

Happy Mother's Day

Okay, try and enjoy yourself on Friday. I won't be in the neighbourhood but I will think of you when I have my red wine Friday night.

Enjoy!! Or at least try too.
