Late June WIPocalypse & 8th Grade Grads!

Well, I've done the pumpkins, just very slow working on the vines and webs.  I haven't been stitching very much, life seems to have gotten in the way!  I think I needed a break from her anyway, just not sure how long it will last.  My goal is to have her finished and framed by October, so I still have some time to put her aside... at least for a little bit.
After eight years at St. Louis School, our gmen graduated in the beginning of June.  The graduation ceremony and reception was very special and just seeing all those kids dressed up was amazing.  They all seemed so much older than 14!
Their graduation gift was finally getting mobile phones... they said they were the last of their friends to get one!  We always knew where they were and didn't want them to have the distraction.  DH wanted to get them a smart phone and luckily, they didn't want one - I know I didn't think they needed one!  Within two days, there were 1900 texts and only about 17 were mine.  Guess they found all their friends!

After the ceremony and reception.
Four generations!

The godparents - to all three boys!

My brother and four of his five kids.

My boys!

The very proud parents!

So much more going on, but that will have to be in another post.  Hopefully sooner than later!
