Not a lot of cooking/baking going on over here this weekend due to the first of the high school grad parties...kids (really, kids no more but I still call them the kids) looking forward to seeing some photos, so here are a few (I was surprisingly forgetful with the camera this weekend, will try to do better in the coming weeks).
Harrison and Matt at Harry's party...Harrison heading to Princeton in the fall and will swim for them with Daniel hoping to be back in the water there as well.
Sarah and Katie. Sarah heading out to Boston University in the fall with Nik already there and Ali going as well. Katie heading down to IU and rooming with Devon in the fall.
Fun at Reyn's party. Jonathan and Matt in the back. Elizabeth, Rhiannon, Kiernan, Devon, and Reyn in the front.
Matt and Reyn at Reyn's party. So much fun to meet so many of Reyn's friends, etc. One thing was very clear: Reyn is much loved by all who know her...including us!
Rhiannon and Carly at Carly's party...both are Pudue bound, despite our best efforts to encourage the Cream and Crimson path...will enjoy watching them swim for the Black and Gold the next four years.
Our Goddaughter Molly and her cousin and best buddy, Alyssa, at their joint party. IU bound...Cindy and I will think of lots of reasons to go to Bloomington for lunch next year!
Through the years we have hundreds of photos of Molly and Matt who have grown up together, Molly is our Goddaughter and Molly's parents are Matt's Godparents. In all the confusion at the party, Matt left to go to another party before we got a photo of the two of them, so Molly posed with her arm around a "pretend Matt who is so much taller" and told me to photoshop him in...I have no clue how to do that but it was a cute photo of Molly covering for the both of them. They will both be down at IU next year, let the fun continue!
Matt and Lauren at Lauren's party...both swimming for IU next year so this won't be the last we all see of Lauren by a long shot.
The very last IYC performance was today. Matt's very last performance, after 12 years. Lots of goodbyes, some tears, some fond memories, some we will see again, some we won't...a lot of lasts this year. (Matt is the fourth from the left in the top row.)
And the very last time we take a photo of Matt and Ali after a choir performance wearing their choir togs. No, Ali hasn't suddenly gotten much taller, she's standing on a higher stairstep and enjoying being almost as tall as Matt. This is a hard one...seeing Ali and Matt singing together for the last time after all these years. She's headed to Boston University in the fall and there are no plans to lose touch with Ali and her family. Hopefully plans to go to Boston to see Nik, Ali, and Sarah!
