Ok I had some major computer issues with my blog this week. I am finally back writing posts thanks to my happening computer guy. Well, it is the last day of school for my boys. The last day of school is a huge celebration when you have teenagers. No more nagging. No more trips to the tutor. No more worrying about grades. No more getting up at the crack of dawn. I am just as happy as they are.
The boys have a busy, but incredibly fun summer schedule. Fencing is heating up as they prepare for a national tournament in Atlanta over 4th of July. After wards they will visit with friends and family for a week . Then it is off to Whale Camp. Whale camp is something so special to them. Camp stories trickle out from them all year long. It is always a touch of sadness for Miles and me to see them leave. But they can't seem to get to the airport gate faster. We are lucky to get a 2 minute phone call during their 3 week stay. A customer told me once that our job as a parents is to give our children roots and wings. So I guess this is the wings part of the equation.
In the shop we are changing our window display in celebration of summer. We will have this lovely diving diva making a splash. They are cut from wood, painted and are about 48" long. A nice vintage feel. They would make a real statement in a beachy bedroom.
We are using some of the other items from this company to decorate a client's Jack and Jill bathroom. Touches of teal and some nice art for a little boy and girl. I love a bit of the mysterious. So we will use this mermaid picture.
Moby Dick will also make an appearance.
