Prizes

The Bird's Prize Day was yesterday.
I only used one tissue.
She's my own prize.
And here are some more prizes.
I think I've figured out how to get around to all their schools.
Just hoping I don't weep uncontrollably at today's graduation.
But it might be nice to lose a little water weight....

So happy for you! I have another week. You'll have to coach me through the finer points of surviving graduation without becoming dehydrated!

Do what I do. When I'm on the verge of 'the ugly cry', I start singing silly songs in my head to distract myself. It works!

Congrats to the Bird! She's lovely.

The Baby Bird is almost ready to fly, huh? It's going to be a real challenge but you can do it! It's got to be difficult when they are both going off, but this is when the real fun begins! They start becoming your friends in addition to being your children. It's so wonderful!

Congratulations Bird & Augie & Parents! So, keeping that in mind might help quell the inevitable tears...

Only one tissue? OK, how BIG was the tissue?

I bought out the local Sam's club when Pitcher graduated...I hope they restock before college graduation next year...and, I certainly hope they invent a truly WATERPROOF mascera by then.
