Final Days...

Today is the last official day of Master C.'s High School Career. In two days he will Graduate! Wow!

A couple of days ago he made his Senior Presentation Speech (about the three weeks he had shadowed several businessmen in their fields) in front of a panel of teachers, parents and classmates and I was so impressed. Master C. is usually rather quiet and reserved, but out there on the stage he was relaxed, he was funny , he was actually enjoying himself! Another 'proud mama'  moment...  {smile}

At home the graduation gown is hanging (to get the creases lessened)  and the decorations are up: let the celebrations begin!


  1. How exciting! I photographed something very special in my garden this week, will share soon, you'll love it! :) x

  2. Mooi jurkje! Gefeliciteerd!

  3. Graduation day is the best there is. My daughter has been studying for an extra master year in London at the UCL. Her graduation day will be in september. Wouldn't want to miss it for the world. We also went to London for her brother's graduation 3 years ago at the LSE. Since thes phenomenon does not exist her in Belgium, we are very happy to have two children to have studied in the UK and we are already looking forward (rather desperately) to attend another graduation.

    It is such a lovely day. And I'm sure you will have another proud-mama-moment.

    Just found you through Polka Dot Petticoat. Seems like we have a lot in common.

    Tot later,


  5. Hope the celebrations are still going on! Graduating is always worth lots and lots of celebrations. Must be wonderful an fulfilling to see the son in his right element!


How wonderful to hear from you!

At the Lake...

To celebrate our last days together, Miss M. and I decided to go on a walk to Rattlesnake Lake, just past North Bend, WA. It was ...
