The last of the Lilies of the Valley. Wish I could include the fragrance as well. Ahhhh.....
At Monday Night Meal we celebrated David Judah's 12th birthday. He's become like family, so the 'cousins' were there and he got the You Are Special recognition and his favorite food, Monte Cristos.
Maybe not so favorite was the Koch-style birthday song. I think he is trying to contain his laughter, or maybe shut out the noise.
On the way home, after the storm, we saw the most beautiful rainbow, or maybe a double rainbow?
Mike completed a huge project--handrails. Turn your head a little sideways and visualize us hanging on and making our way up the stairs in our old age. And, now we won't be afraid of baby Zion falling off the side either. The other four grandbabies survived our railless staircase, so maybe he is safe too, but this will prevent us from having a heart attack.
Saturday, May 8th: niece Tina and DIL Kristie's graduations. What to do?
Friday I traveled to Winona Lake to spend time with Mother and take her to the Presidential Dessert reception at Grace and thus we honored the lovely Cristina, who graduated Suma Cum Laude the next day.
Saturday brave Daddy Sam, the three boys and I battled the crowds at Ball State University's Sciences and Humanities graduation ceremony to honor Kristie, who triumphed against all odds and earned a near perfect GPA in Psychological Sciences.
Between commencement and celebration meal, I had enough time to go home and get in on Kayla's prom send-off.
Do you notice anything similar in the following photo taken 19 years earlier?
A busy but wonderful day! And now it is Mother's Day. Here is the poster I made for my mother.
