He did it!
Son #1’s graduation ceremony was held outside at the football stadium. It was a cold and extremely windy day. They got through maybe 30 graduates crossing the stage, and they canceled the ceremony due to the weather. The 1,500 graduates cheered and were happy to leave the football field! They announced “You are now graduates, move your tassel to the other side!” So, he didn’t get to walk across the stage, but he is a graduate!! YAY! He left tonight for six weeks in New Zealand! Lucky kid!
I had a very emotional goodbye with the boys. I’m not sure if it was because it was Mother’s Day, or because I had to face that I wouldn’t be seeing them for awhile. Son #2 is staying in Colorado for the summer and Son #1 is either staying in Colorado or going to California once he returns from his trip. I really miss them not being near me. It is hard to be a mother…hard to let go. We all had a great visit though!
I almost finished the first monkey sock this past week. I started it just before getting on the plane to Denver, and worked on it when I had a chance. Son #1 and I were very busy getting him moved out of his apartment, cleaning, laundry, getting new contacts, clothing, etc.
I feel like a true sock knitter now that I have knit the monkey sock! I am knitting them with yarn I got in the Taste of Germany collection: Sheepaints, Sock’n Go on size 2 circular needles. I really like knitting with two circs.
