Lots of celebrating going on at our house this week. College Guy and Mum-in-law came in last weekend, just in time for Knitting Daughter’s graduation from high school. I know this picture is a little blurry, but this is her on the way back up the aisle at the end of the ceremony, beaming because it’s official – she’s done with high school! She is a happy gal. We went out to dinner afterwards to celebrate with her, and then the Senior Class had an all-night lock-in that was a lot of fun for everyone. KD came home at 5:30 the next morning, ready for some sleep! Today, it was back to being a Barista at 6 am and making her mom a Venti Skinny Hazelnut with one Sweet and Low.
The other celebration we had this week was for College Guy’s 21st birthday. The actual date was last week (and thank you all for your wonderful birthday greetings for him, as well as graduation greetings for KD on Monday!). Since he was in the midst of finals on his birthday, we waited until he came home to do a family party for him. (My poor family – two celebrations, two nights in a row. Everyone held up remarkably well through the whole thing.) We went and found these awesome cupcakes at a cupcake bakery in town yesterday. They’re delicious and huge and I wish this place was just a wee bit closer to my house. Or maybe not. I’m still trying to figure out how one can own a cupcake bakery without eating them all every day.
We did some re-stocking yesterday and put a few things up, but we’re not doing an official Sneak Up this week. (You know when we skip a week, that always means an overload for the next week. But we’ll be ready for it.) We only get College Guy home for one measly week this summer (oh, and 3 days at the end of the summer) because he has a great internship in Florida for the summer. He leaves on Saturday already. I’m driving down there with him (knitting time plus time with CG = one happy mom) and will be back on Monday night. It’s a good thing that this is Memorial Day Weekend. That also means an extra day of knitting for everyone, right?
