She Gradumatated!

This weekend was the culmination of a long haul for my youngest daughter. Rebecca earned her BA and 10 family members came to help celebrate. We had house guests from California, Virginia, Minnesota, and Texas, and had a terrific time. Although it's been cold and rainy, Saturday was sunny and 70, perfect for the ceremony and playing bocce and drinking rhubarbaritas. All in all, it was an excellent day (and weekend).

I'm heading to quilt market later this week, so Pearl the Squirrel may continue to be quiet, but next week I should have lots of photos and tales of the city (Minneapolis, this time).

Looks like a great time was had by all. Congratulations to Rebecca - and to her parents.

Love the family photo (the top one!). Just found your blog - very nice! I love to hear the Midwestern gentleness of your prose - my kids call it "Iowa nice".
