Considering that I spent most of the weekend in fear of the weatherman and his "lovely" predictions, graduation went off pretty well for the most part. No torrential downpour during the ceremony, no real outbursts or family issues, no drama . . . just fun and moderately nice weather (which is always a bonus in our non-air conditioned house). Many thanks to everyone in the family for coming out but especially to my friend L for offering to have the graduation party at her house. She honestly will never know how easy it made my weekend (think full blown panic attack, otherwise). Consequently, I am three repeats in on her thank-you socks . . . and still typing that word wrong.
On more interesting news, the Flyer and I took Lola, SK, and the Other Sister to the casino (and won $108 on the slots) after graduation and maybe it was happiness and joy (and lots of lager), but Lola and I told our sister about the blog . . . and felt like total idiots. In true Black Sheep fashion, we let her pick her name; from now on, we will refer to her as Daphne . . . maybe we'll get her to knit. I have a feeling that's not likely, though.
Three more days of school before we can put an end to this school year and begin planning anew.
PS - "Send Me On My Way" was the girls' class song . . . and I couldn't think of a better one!
