His ceremony took place on Monday and the last day of school was Tuesday. It was a cute ceremony with a processional, singing, stories by the teachers and then ending with handing out of diplomas as each child got to step up on a podium and shake hands with the teacher. I was so emotional during her story about what it's like to be a kindergarten teacher that my face was wet with tears when she'd finished. It didn't help that she was emotional too!
Kevin was so proud of himself as were we. He held his head up high and had such a good time during the ceremony. When he received his diploma he turned, faced the audience of parents and waved and smiled to everyone while still on the top step of the podium! He was a little man. And I was just in tears!
I'm so proud of him. He's becoming such a little man. He's excited to be going into first grade as am I. He'll learn so much more and the world will become even more fascinating for him. But when that first day of school rolls around, you can bet I'll be in tears once more!
I did get some work done this week even though I've had Kevin back at home all day long again. I'm still busy making custom orders (which is a good thing) and have not yet caught up on them. My shop has slowed down tremendously as summer has been closing in. Sales are extremely slow and all I have done is concentrate on the custom orders I have lined up. If it wasn't for them I'd hardly be selling anything. Here's a bit of what I've been doing.
Pink freshwater pearl necklace
Yellow cat's eye necklace and earrings
Pink cat's eye necklace and earrings
Long (30") beaded necklace - strung
And I do have just a couple of new things in the shop.
Smokey quartz twisted spiral briolette earrings
I will eventually get these listed in my shop. And I have so many pieces that I want to make, but finding the energy and time to do so is another thing. I'm battling my knee right now. The osteoarthristis in it has flared up since getting rammed in the knee by a certain boy's bicycle. It was an accident. He didn't put on the brakes in time. It hurts quite a bit even though I sit on the couch alternating between ice and heat on my knee about every 2 hours or so. Then I'll think it's all right only to find out it's still swollen and hurts. Ah well. Getting old...and feeling older. Not fun.
I hope everyone has a good weekend and a great week ahead.
Until next time....
