and then this happened

Tuesday, June 19, 2018


Yep.  It happened.  Time rolled on like the speed of lightning and my baby graduated from High School.   I started this blog when Andrew went to kindergarten.  It's so hard to believe that just like that, he has now graduated.

I truly encourage anyone who wants to document snippets of everyday life to start a blog.  Although this is and has been mostly a knitting blog, having moments of my everyday life sprinkled into my blog is one of the greatest gifts I have given myself.  I love, love, LOVE looking back on the years and seeing what we were up to during different years.  I usually always pick a year from my archives and look at a particular month.  Always, ALWAYS with a smile.

Andrew will be headed to school in less than two months.  A new chapter will then begin.  I've been having many talks with myself.  Telling myself to embrace this new chapter.  I think it's now beginning to soak in.  I know it will be filled with college visits and care packages and travel. And of course, knitting.

It's gonna be a great new chapter.  Just like the last.

  1. The first dinner with no one home is really weird! We avoided it a lot by eating out. By the second semester we found our groove! Congrats!

  3. Right there with you. Of course, one still home, but she has her license so she won't be around as much, either.

  4. Hello Leslie,

    I felt the same, when Jeremy graduated from High School and then from college. He's my only child and it was such a pain to send him to University Centre Croydon in the UK. While I was left alone in Corpus Christi, Texas. Now, as he finished his studies, he's back home and I can't be more happy to see him healthy and smiling. Besides, he's got a girlfriend in the UK, so I guess I still have a weird feeling of loss coming soon...

    Warm hugs,
