Family Matters

It’s certainly been an eventful week. Within eight days’ time, a number of large life events have taken place. And I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.

First, my daughter’s last day of high school and senior prom on Friday, then my brother’s out-of-state beach wedding rehearsal the next day and wedding on Sunday.

The following week saw my daughter’s high school graduation (from Towson High School) at Towson University (where she’ll be attending Towson’s Honors College in the fall). And, of course, the graduation parties and visits from family and friends. Now, she’s enjoying Senior Week at the beach with two of her friends—fortunately not at the giant one most of the seniors are muddling through.

Mixed in with all of that was my grandfather’s 98th birthday, an awards ceremony for Nicole, and a scholarship ceremony for her as well. She walked out with scholarships from Towson University, Towson High School, and the Maryland House of Delegates.

Alex still has another week and a half before his graduation from elementary school.

When it rains, it pours. Then, let the summer begin!
