popping in

Things are so busy here that I’m a little dizzy.

My oldest graduated from high school on Sunday.

graduation day

We had lots of family and friends here to celebrate, which was lovely. Lulu had spent the prior month making a surprise documentary to show, about H’s filmmaking. It’s a wonderful project, with interviews and clips of H’s films over the years. It really tells the story of his evolution as a filmmaker. If you have 15 minutes or so to spare, check it out. You can see yours truly yammering on about her boy and his art. Part 1 is here and part 2 here.

Now I’m darting around, trying to get us all ready for a grand adventure. More to come…

    Interesting for me because my 15 year old loves playing with the camera and especially likes editing. His 6 year old sister is his number one accomplice.

    Congratulations! Lulu did a terrific job on that “retrospective”.

      You never know where those interests may take them. Especially when they have cute young siblings to feature!

      Thanks, Susan! Yes, many adventures–and I hope I don’t hear about all of them! 🙂

    Thanks for your email. We have been running around like crazy people. Please have a great time in Sweden. I’ll be on the island next to öland, Gotland. We are summering there soon. I look forward to your adventures. Congratulations on the graduate. I will watch this film tonight. I can hardly wait to see it. Be Well.

      We just loved Stockholm and öland. I have some photos of Stockholm up on the blog, and will post photos of the island farm soon. Wish I could upload all of them. We’ve seen so many beautiful places! Will look forward to seeing your Sweden blog posts too–I loved the post about elderflower saft. I’d like to try that.
