It's been a long stretch to get here, but we're almost done.

Yesterday we had my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary Party. Their actual anniversary was in December, but they wanted the party when the weather was nice. And we lucked out, since it was monsooning all week, but gorgeous yesterday.

Some pics:
Sofia getting cozy with the Blue Corn Chips
 The "Triplets", Julia, Sam and Hannah (the twins are six weeks older than my Sam).

 All The Grandkids
 David looking rather alarmingly like his father!
 Laura and Sam
 The GoofBalls:

 The sons-in-law photo-bomb the pic:

It was a nice party. Long day. And I spent all Friday until about 1:30 am making a video (which I had not planned to do, but then I did it anyway). Came out cool. And fortunately David arrived home from Europe on Friday instead of having to fly in Saturday and then drive down.

Today for Father's Day, we (eventually) went to the Decordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, MA. It would have been nicer without the kids, since the boys were coping attitudes and Sofia was GROUCHY (she kept telling us she was GROUCHY).  But it was still lovely.

I am unfortunately having an allergic reaction to something, and I have a rash all over my neck. Really itches and looks awful. Not at all sure what it is from. I have been putting Cortizone on it today and just took a Benadryl.

Tomorrow is Sam's GRADUATION from MWJDS! On Friday, for the last Shabbat assembly, his class led the prayers, and the moms all sobbed.

So I'll have much more to post after graduation. I've been working all week on video for the event - a slide show from Kindergarten through Eighth grade, for the whole class and then for each of the six graduates individually. Hopefully it will go ok.
