It was a week of celebrations and a week of worry this time. I hope I can find time to read and comment tomorrow, but I still have my company, daughter and family, and am preparing for an unexpected trip. My grandson in Texas had a bad accident in his final baseball game. He missed catching a fly ball, and it hit his left eye. He just came home from the hospital Thursday, and the ongoing concern may mean surgery. Like any injury to a growing child, the worry is how future growth might affect the injured muscle, etc. So, as you might imagine, with both parents working, it's tough. I'm going to go and help this coming week, starting Tuesday. I celebrate that the injury wasn't even more serious, and that I'm finished with school! Whew, life throws a metaphorical curve ball sometimes, but this time it really was one!
|Continuation of our 8th graders happened Wednesday. For many|
years, I've been in awe of how wonderful the ceremony is. The
pennants are designed by the students, and created by parent volunteers.
Those on a black backdrop are for the current class.
|It's been a joy having my daughter, son-in-law, and two|
granddaughters stay. They're still here, and will be past
the time I leave next week. As we all know, renovations
follow their own timetable. Here they are playing soccer
with their Papa.
|Peonies at last.|
|It has been worth the wait for spring, and now summer. Every|
flower is late blooming, yet they seem more beautiful than
ever. I can't get enough of looking at them!
Finally, I celebrate my school and my colleagues. We ended the year with inspiration from and gratitude for each other. We take away much hope for the next year together. Best to everyone for a great week next week, wherever you are!
