As I've already dished, this past week was a busy one. But it was all for goodness sake!

Someone here can iron!
The highlight was Chaco's graduation from high school. We never expected him to not graduate, but it's still not something to be taken for granted.
I know HE was ready to be finished and is looking forward to being all Joe College starting in the fall. He's going to major in computer science at the local university, and we've heard very positive things about the program.
I've actually taught a few students that attend or have attended this university, and I think it's a good fit for Chaco. I'm glad he chose it. Plus it's close, so the Mom factor is high :)
In other silver liningness, the school year is winding down. Wolfgang and Meego have one more week to endure - as do us crossing guards. I stopped by the elementary school last week after some PTO friends told me about gift cards for the staff. I had a nice chat with the principal while there AND picked up my gift card.
As also mentioned earlier, Meego had another birthday this week. This ended up taking a bit of a backseat to all the graduation hoopla, but yesterday we had a belated Meego Day. We spent the afternoon at a local "family fun center" arcade type place. I learned that I suck at auto racing games, but can still give Pac Man ghosts a run. Afterwards, we went out for Chinese food.
So it was a busy week, but a good busy. Have I mentioned lately how much I appreciate the blog friends who visit and comment? I was glad to be able to keep up with my daily blogging this week, and even though I didn't answer as many comments as I'd liked, I got a kick out of all of them.
But really, busy weeks like this remind how busy all of us are with family and work and life. I really appreciate that people stop by to read and say nice things!
