Connecticut Weekend - Part 3

Prize Day was held the day before graduation at nef #1's school.  It was a lovely ceremony that highlighted the accomplishments of the graduates.  My nef earned the honor of Cum Laude, and just about every other honor within the particular subject areas. Not that I'm braggin' or nuttin.'

It was warm but the sun was beginning to set.  

Headmaster remarks. yada yada yada

Proud family minus one.  Nef #2 was taking an exam at his school.

Every time nef received an honor he had to stand up.

Each time Nef stood up, Sista and I exchanged sly smiles knowing that those would be OUR genes responsible for the honors.

Nef is thinking how lucky he is that he hit the DNA gene jackpot.

Off we go with the trunk chock-full of awards.

Until tomorrow... the big day... graduation.

Hope your day is filled with kudos!!

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Congrats to your nephew. Quite an accomplishment.
