In Which Finnian is Two!
I meant to post this yesterday but this kind of got in the way:

Before Finn came along June the second used to be a very hard day for me, for, it is the anniversary of the day that my Mom passed away. Now, instead of a sad day, the day for me is bittersweet. See, both of my children's birthdays have something to do with my Mom. Colleen, who is named after her, was born the day before my Mom's birthday. So on Mom's birthday again, it is hard being sad when I've just celebrated the birth of my first child, the one who taught me about all this Mommy business in the first place. I have a sneaking suspicion that my Mom, wherever she may be, planned it this way-- so that, rather than being sad on these days, she gave me something to be joyful about and it lets me know that she is still looking out for me. I love her and I miss her all the time.

Thursday I head to the Motherland (ie California) to see my baby brother graduate from high school. We are all quite grown up now and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to be there on this important day in his life. So many changes . . .

Colleen graduated from pre-K this weekend as well and she is pleased as punch. It was quite cute and the first "class sing" that I've been to, so it was a first for me there. Here she is with her little cap and gown and diploma:

And there has been knitting, and sewing but if you would like to see that, please, check me out on ravelry. I'm knittingeileen. I find that it is much easier to post pictures there and much easier to get my project details down.
