"Why is Ju-lie wear-ing white?
She's not a vir-gin..."
Those are the words a friend of mine spontaneously made up at his sister's high school graduation, sung to the tune of "Pomp and Circumstance".
That was over 30 years ago, yet every time I hear the song, those words play in my mind over and over. Such was the case again at Wolfgang's graduation. My apologies to any graduates named Julie, virgin or not. (Go ahead, sing a few bars. I bet it'll be in your head forever too)
Yes, as mentioned earlier this week, Wolfgang graduated high school. It was a nice enough ceremony - not too pompous under the circumstances *cough*cough*. Now, we never expected him to NOT graduate high school, but we're proud of him nonetheless.
His brothers were thrilled to be in attendance...
And I know that he's glad to be finished with high school and is looking forward to getting going at college next year. Did I mention that he and I might be in a class together? How weird will THAT be?!
It was a busy week with all the end-of-schoolyear activities going on. But now that all the hoopla is finished, all that busyness seems a long time ago. I'm slowly making progress and getting the house out of threat of condemnation.
And the weather has finally turned B-e-a-utiful! Mornings are lovely for running, the grass is growing, birds are chirping.
The job boards and my e-mail at the tutor matching site have been lighting up with activity with inquiries for summer tutoring. I'm having to turn jobs away. I remember the early days when I was brand new and willing to tutor anyone who asked. It's nice to be able to be picky.
On that note, we're getting some summer fun plans organized around everyone's work and play schedules. We don't have any major trips planned for this summer, but we won't be total homebodies either. I did get the van all prepped for duty. Another hubcap fell off! We're almost at full pedophile van mode!
Happy summer, everyone! Feel free to wear white, no matter what your status!
