From graduation and beyond!
I'm having a bit of computer time will my dad and step mom NAP! So the house is quiet. Nice. Graduation was....WOW....I am still so blown away! They called me as class valedictorian!! I was just completely amazed beyond words, and it's a good thing I didn't have to give a speech, because I couldn't get anything out of my mouth at that point! It was wonderful having my Dad and step mom here to witness my moment :c)
This pic was taken at my house just before leaving for the graduation ceremony.
Yesterday, Saturday, we went to Charleston and spent the entire day doing touristy things. Charleston is just the most wonderful walkable city! So much to do and see....we got home about midnight.I think the plan for today is lunch at crackerbarrel, a bit of shopping and some more just relaxing and recuperating from yesterday. Fine by me! It's been a whirlwind and this is the first day with nothing planned!I filled out all my paperwork yesterday morning early, and sent it off to the national certification board to apply for my national exam. I hope to hear back in about 3 weeks as to when and where I can take it. Now the waiting begins!
My folks will be here until wednesday. So not much quilting going on until after that, but I do have all the pics taken that I need for writing up the instructions for the pineapple blossom quilt. As soon as I have some 'alone' time I'll be able to tackle that. It feels so weird knowing there is no more school for me. But I also have this wonderful sense of peace and purpose and of goals reached. And maybe I'll take a very well deserved nap too!
