then visited cast-on cottage to check-in on our latest KAL (this photo doesn't capture all the drama - that's another post for another blog!).
got dressed (smiled! and posed!).
and did the ceremony in perfect style. I wrote to several friends today that the rain was really a blessing for us. graduation was in the high school gym - a very small venue (sara gave away two of her four tickets...I was glad it was just marc and me...) and how cool that we made eye contact more than once! I surprised myself - no tears (maybe it was knowing I'd forgotten tissues and all marc could offer was a recycled napkin?)
the best surprise for me was finding this photo on my camera. cloud nine. life is a blur. focus on what's important. . . .
one last "official" photo (that's her real diploma hidden in the green folder)
