Anna and Emma headed off to the mall this week to make a Build-A-Bear friend for Emma. Emma is super attached to her new rain boots that Sissy got her for her birthday. She wants to wear them every where, rain or no rain. When Sissy got new rain boots too, Emma seemed to think they should both wear their boots to the mall.
Anna graduated from high school this week. She graduated Magna Cum Laude, in the top 3% of her class. We haven't gotten her official rank yet, but she was in the top 20 out of a class of over 600. We are so proud of her, she has worked very hard.
Jacob also had a graduation this week, from the 8th grade. We are thrilled that he also finished the year on the honor roll.
I can't seem to post lately without sharing a little from my garden. This week the climbing miniature roses that are winding up onto my porch rails have begun blooming. There must be a thousand delicate tiny pink buds.
The peonies have also started blooming. I have several varieties. This one is one of my favorites. It is such a beautiful mix of soft pink and cream. I wish they would last all season.
