Rachel graduated from 5th grade yesterday - she looked so grown up! It's going to feel funny not going to Joaquin Miller Elementary School any more - it's a great school and a very nice community. The school put on a very nice slide show depicting all the 5th graders throughout the year, and they even made a DVD for each kid. It's nice since the kids will be splitting up now and going to different middle schools. Rachel did very well in the ceremony; we are very proud parents!
Afterwards a large group of us went to a pool to cool off - it has been so hot! We have no air conditioning (since we only get about 4 weeks of hot weather during the year), so right now it is 81 degrees in the house! Good thing we have plenty of ice cream in the freezer. I reached in to make myself a bowl, and I just stood there with the door open. Boy, did that feel good!
My knitting has not gotten very far, I'm afraid. It's slow going anyway, and a few rows on a sock does not amount to much! I'm taking a class tomorrow at Article Pract on knitting a tank top - that should go much faster. Have I prepared for this class? Do my cats clean up their fur balls? I should I try to run down there on my lunch hour tomorrow so I can at least have a swatch made before the class. Then I could actually knit on the project during the class. Wouldn't that be nice?
