We went to DS's percussion concert last night. This concert is always one of my favorites and last night did not disappoint. The percussion director starts seeing these kids the end of their 5th grade year and is involved with them all through the end of high school. As you might imagine, he's very close to them by their senior year. I realize how blessed we are to have him work with our kids. Not only is he a great teacher and percussionist who pushes them to acheive more than one would think HS kids can, but he really cares about these kids and demonstrates such a good role model for them. He's "family" by the time they are ready to graduate. He choked up a bit introducing his seniors last night...as did they with their thank you's and tributes to him. They won't see each other as often after they go their separate ways, but they'll always be in each others' lives.
It's been warm and humid here and my walking buddy and I have definitely NOT enjoyed all the mosquitos. I keep thinking if someone would figure out a way to use them as fuel for our cars, we'd solve two problems at once.
On the stitching front, I completed a little PS deer (from the Fall Fields leaflet) for a deer-themed exchange block. I stitched it on a piece of DMC marbled aida with the suggested DMC floss. I just have to choose and stitch a Santa and then I'm done with the blocks for this year.
I'm SO almost finished with my PS summer sampler. (It's a PS week, I guess.) I just have some backstitching and "signing" to do and it will be complete. I'd love to stitch at least another from the leaflet....someday. I love the little "vignette" at the bottom, especially the little bunny.
DS will be away Sat and Sat night at a retreat for his school's service club so I'm thinking DH and I should at least go out to a movie...maybe even dinner out too.
Everyone have a fantastic week!
