Pomp and Circumstance

What could be better than a typical cheesy high school graduation photos of the graduate squeezed between parents and grandparents? Our third daughter has finally commenced, graduating from Lamar High School's class of 2008. If one looks closely at the photo, the mortarboard tassel reads 2007. She borrowed a hat from one of last year's graduates, and the gown from her big sister. I couldn't be more proud....that she was OK with not having all her own stuff to wear, and that she's finished with high school.

Looking at this photo of Hilary with Mimi and Papa, it's amazing to me how much she looks like her grandparents. After a two hour ceremony, it was also amazing to me that we were all this cheerful.

The rush of life happening right now has temporarily delayed a brewing art idea. For a few weeks now, I've had an idea percolating around in my brain, waiting for the right time to begin. Maybe in the next few days, my art life can re-adjust and all these ideas can materialize. The "extra" time to organize my brain and mull over details has been great. The fullness of life that has precluded the start of the art project has been wonderful.
