Well…did you all have a good weekend? We had a wonderful weekend — we headed south for three days to attend TheSecondChild’s MBA graduation. As he says, now he’s a Master. So, I should probably change his name to MasterSecondChild LOL. It was a fairly small graduation ceremony (compared to his undergrad event)– mostly advanced degrees, since it’s out-of-cycle for undergrad degrees.
Thursday night was the “Hooding Ceremony”. Each school held it’s own ceremony for the grads. The hoods are all different colors too, depending on the area of study. In MasterSecondChild’s case, the tan is for the business school and the red and blue are the university colors. It was funny to see everyone after the hooding ceremony, ’cause no one knew how to arrange the colors.
They were all fixed by graduation though and everyone was properly folded.
So, it was a great weekend with lots of good food and fun. We had fun fixing a few things that had to be fixed around his apartment and just being parents in general. It’s always exciting to see your child’s hard work pay off too, and we’re very proud of our littlest Thimble. Er, MasterThimble. All good things come to an end though, and after I accidentally locked the young Master out of his apartment — oops! — I think he was probably ready to see us on our way LOL.
And this is what we saw upon our return … the thief has been discovered. Caught in the Act! He’s a brazen little Chippy — sat and ate that whole tomato right in front of me. Luckily, we’re having a bumper crop of tomatoes, so there are plenty to go around!
Ooooh, before I go, I’ve been forgetting to mention the Aurifil block of the month! Run on over to the Aurifil page and see the fabulous August block — embroidered by the famous Bari J.! And don’t forget to check out the flickr group — there are lots of beautiful blocks being shared!
Ok, Peeps, have a great week!
