my family

Hello my friends :)  I'm a tiny bit nervous hosting this weekend series, but here I go-bravely!

This weekend has been eventful and joyful and oh so full of goodness.  We spent the day watching our daughter graduate from law school!  Before I forget, I must say that the ceremony was IN an auditorium with AC.  Phew.  I was comfy and loving the day.

I had no trouble finding her in a crowd, can't explain how one child is findable (not a word but should be one) and one is not.  It just is.  Afterwards, we lunched at a restaurant in town with her boyfriend and friends.

I have a full house-with shoes scattered in the foyer, piano being played, and a Zelda game is running upstairs while my son does the three heart challenge (it's a gamer thing).

I'm happy that we will all go to church tomorrow morning and have a family meal together, not sure what that will be.

How was your weekend?  Please share!

  4. Oh how I love the family picture!! You have a beautiful family. And your daughter looks so much like you. Congratulations to her! My sister graduates tomorrow with her nursing degree. Such happy times! Because tomorrow will be so busy, I wrote my weekending post tonight. I'm usually not this early with it, but I was afraid if I didn't write it now I wouldn't get it done. And I wanted to take part for your first week hosting!!

  6. That is a good looking family you have! Congratulations to you your daughter, what a great achievement! I can pretty much sum our weekend up in one word - wet. Maybe it should be two words - really wet! We did have some of Nadia's friends spend the night and one of Hannah's here yesterday afternoon. There was reading, watching TV, knitting, good food and a rhubarb dessert. So it wasn't all bad... ;-)

  32. congratulations to your daughter, Karen! and thank you for being the new host for the weekending series~ our weekend was a full one with visits and a ballet, tailgate market and lots of gardening. and sadly, apparently a broken camera (boo!) hoping to get this extension of my eyeballs fixed soon, but for now, a post with no pictures:

  34. I wanted to be one the first to add my link to support you in your new role. Unfortunately I haven't had time to write my weekend. But yours looks amazing...as do you. ditto what everyone says about your beautiful family. You must be so proud of your daughters hard work. You look very happy and it sounds like you had an amazing weekend. What a lovely post for your first time hosting.
    I hope that the week continues in the same vein
