In the midst of all of my moving talk over the last few weeks (BTW - it's tomorrow!!!), there's another huge event coming in my family. My youngest will graduate from Lutheran High School!! I feel just a little bad about overshadowing his last month in high school with this move, but he might just be more excited than I am. His room is bigger and in the basement away from us, his commute for his last few weeks at school is an easy 3 miles, and he has also thought he was more urban that rural. (Although we've tried to tell him "rural" is an exaggeration. We do currently live on 5 acres on the prairie, however, it's only 3 minutes to the town's cultural events center and a big library, and it's 5 minutes to Costco plus any number of fast food options. It's hard to say we're rural. However, we are moving to a charming little neighborhood which is actually further from all of those things, but we have next door neighbors!)
Besides my son's graduation, a number of his lacrosse teammates will graduate. Since my husband has coached them for years, I am always called upon to do quite a few cards in school colors.
I love our hobby because it is extra special that I can create something specific for the kids. Purple, black, silver/gray - and they know it's for them!
I hope to see you playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
