I just started composing a post to share Tim's graduation announcement and the fun I had making it, but then realized I had already posted about that. Oops.

I made this graduation announcement for Tim. It was fun. Tim bought me InDesign for my birthday last year, and I'm sad to say that I haven't really used it a whole lot. But I'm using it now for this!

We're making the most of his graduation, what with this announcement (fancy). And he's going to be walking, obviously. I didn't do those things when I finished school over a year ago . . . weird. My graduation wasn't a marked event: I just received my diploma in the mail one day, and when I did, it was surreal because there was absolutely no pomp and circumstance. Maybe it's nice to walk so you actually feel like you have graduated. I kept fearing that I hadn't until I got my diploma, which took its time coming, and even when it came, the resolution was anticlimactic.

This won't be the actual picture. We'll have to take a good one soon so we can send these out to a few folks!

weird in the morning, episode 3

You'll of course remember this and this. Well, this morning was one of those mornings.

Tim: I had a dream about how horses were brought to the Americas.

Amanda mulling about, getting ready, while Tim lies in bed. Tim raises his hands in the air to signify a touchdown (?).

Tim: Goaaaal!

Amanda looks questioningly at Tim.

Tim: That is what the refs do.

This time he does a few different motions.

Tim: In baseball, they do this. You're ooouuuut!

P.S. Tim wanted me to tell you that he's not crazy, he's just tired when he wakes up.
