Graduation was very nice last night.
The Salutatorian address was the best I ever remember hearing — applicable, relevant, and interesting. BIG Tom got a trophy for attending at BBCS from K5, SteveO got the same.
The party afterwards was very nice as well. It’s the first we have stayed for and was well attended I thought. The other children wanted to have parties at the house and so for them we did that. But BIG Tom’s class being so small and close knit, it was better this way.
A cooler of YooHoos was a BIG hit, and made BIG Tom’s table most popular with the kids [and some adults too]. His table was simple compaired to others but that was appropriate for him.
I wish we had taken more family pictures. I was fully intending to have one taken of my best friend, myself, BIG Tom, and Sari Beri for our Christmas card but totally forgot. Maybe another time. We did get this one of BIG Tom and his sister — nice! We call these “Phil’s kids”.
Today will be a relaxed, hangout kind of day. We will pick strawberries and maybe run a few errands, have leftovers for dinner and maybe get some ice cream…
Monday, my running partner and I will run a couple of laps around the Rock [10 miles]. That will be nice — I really, really need that!
Summer is upon us now, the pace a bit slower and not so hectic we all hope.
I have decided to wait until the new Mac OS comes out to purchase my laptop. It is scheduled for October but sometimes this gets pushed back. I would think most certainly by the end of the year. However, sometimes with the release date of a new OS looming the manufacturer will sell existing machines with a certificate for a FREE upgrade once the new OS is available. If that happens, I will buy. For now, I will try to be patient. I figure I’ve waited 7 years, I can wait a few more months…
