  1. Yay! Now I'll be able to recognize you when we meet up at the Mount. :) I haven't been back to New Haven in a very long time...I've heard it's even less nice than it was, but it would be lovely to stroll around campus again.

    1. Audrey - Maybe we could meet at the Mount this fall. Did you live in New Haven? I worked at St. Raphael's when we lived there in the 80's. The area got pretty bad after that, but seems better now.

  4. Congrats to the graduate! I cannot even make that leap in my head right now. But yes, May was snarly and busy and I've pretty much decided that there will be no peace for another six years at least. I don't know why I keep telling myself it is coming. The next step is learning to embrace the chaos and go with it.

    1. Sandy - You may be right about peace in 6 more years... high school years are crazy-busy. It was such a relief this year not to plan our life around the school calendar, sports schedules, etc., etc. The only complication this year was having three different college vacation schedules to deal with. But, they don't necessarily want to vacation with us anyway ;-)

    1. Softdrink - It's hard to remember what life was like before Zelda. She's come a long way from the racetrack - she didn't even know make eye contact with people when we got her.

  7. Congrats to #1 daughter! You've really had a busy month - and the summer sounds like it will be just as busy with all of the girls at home!

    1. Lisa - Summer will definitely be just as busy, but it's all good things. I keep thinking this is the last time we will all be together for an extended time... shell be moving to NYC in the fall.

  8. Congrats on your beautiful daughter's graduation!!

    And I keep meaning to find a local farmer's market! Though I'm not sure how the fare is this season--seems that even the grocery store the produce is pitiful looking.

    Hope June is a wonderful month for you!

    1. Trish - Thank you - it seems like we just moved her into the dorm for the first time last year, and now it's over. She plans to work for a few years then eventually head back to grad school. Farmer's markets are the best... it's like a local fair every weekend.

  11. Congrats on your daughter's graduation! I'm sure you'll have a wonderful summer together at lakeside. My son is back from first year professional school, working a summer job here back home. So yes, our small family is together again for the summer.

  18. I like the way you write these monthly wrap-ups. They seem like lovely prose. I also like the wrap-ups because they help me catch up with what's you've been doing - especially this month when I've been gone.

    Congratulations to your daughter and you and your husband. Enjoy your accomplishment.
