May already! What happened to April??

Ok - April was a crazy busy month. My sister Martha came out from Wyoming to meet my aunts, the Hippo Awards were scheduled and video was needed for them along with 10 to 12 hr + days, my kids had lots of activities - end of the year concerts, projects, college meetings, and -you know how it goes. In addition to that, a wedding, the death of a friend, and preparations for El Paso company for my son's graduation, and my daughter's promotion from 8th grade.

First picture:
This is a "car-b-que." At DS's school the seniors had a car-b-que on Friday after their awards ceremony and cap and gown distribution. Dude -this is the front of a car that someone put a barbeque grill in. It works great!

Here we are in the car after graduation on Saturday.

He gredueted. No -he gradgeated. No -he gredgaited. NO- HE'S DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am SO proud of him. He worked hard and it's paid off.
Did Mom have the camera for the ceremony? Nooooo, I put it in a safe place. I found it after graduation. (:0(

On the knitting front, I'm making slow progress on the baby sweater. I don't know why I've been so bogged down. I just don't have enough hours in the day.

Here's a picture of the sleeves.

It has nothing to do with how busy April was and how chaotic my apartment is with the ceilings torn out and not fixed yet. Drywall dust EVERYWHERE and my Closet o' Yarn all over the living room. I had to buy a new vacuum to deal with the debris from the ceilings because my 20 yr. old Rainbow won't "do" drywall dust. Man!
