Hee Haw! We brought home Violet's brother this weekend. A trip out the Quad Cities (Birthplace of Joe) brought us to the Village of East Davenport and a little handing over some major cashola for a new Isabel Bloom for the garden. I'm sure Chuck over at Secondary Roads will LOVE him, as he already swears up and down he loves my Violet. Yeah, right.
Today is the last day, hopefully, of our craziness as Em graduates tonight. I'm loaded up like a packmule--dragging along the camcorder, camera, cap & gown, Valedictorian, big box 'o tissue, one grumpy trumpet player, and a very proud Grandma Phyl. I'm excited to get there and enjoy her triumphs over at Thugs-R-Us Middle School.
Funny how I chose this particular figure to bring home, I'm sort of like him about this whole thing--afraid to watch how fast these kids are growing up. I want to watch--but I don't. It's all good, but going waaayyyy too fast.
