In the middle of May, I went to my oldest daughter's graduation from Notre Dame. It was a wonderful weekend, full of time spent with just our daughter and raucous times spent with her friends and their families. Despite the weather (36 degrees cold!) on the big day, nothing could suppress the celebratory mood.

Then came prom. My youngest daughter's school is small, so they have a combined junior/senior prom. She had a great time. I love it that the school sold individual tickets to the event, so there wasn't any stigma for going without a date. That said, my daughter went with one of her closest friends and it was sweet to see them get all dressed up.

Of course, work has kept me busy. I just love it. I'm a big fan of all the people I work with, both staff and founders, and taking the 9:22 train home hasn't been a problem --- except when I get stuck behind an open drawbridge for hours. That said, I'm learning and doing more in those days than I ever thought possible. Being in the city is great too.

I've been lucky to squeeze in some time at the museum. The Nest exhibition was amazing. I wish you all could have seen it. I was able to give one of the closing weekend tours last Saturday. By now I'm sure you know how much I love giving tours. Even though the exhibition has been up for three months, every visitor brings a slightly different take on the art and it keeps it so exciting for me. I'm looking forward to docent training next week when we learn about a new exhibition! And, I've been in conversation with the Associate Curator about upcoming exhibitions for which I might want to be docent trainer, so stay tuned.
|Now that the exhibition is over, all of James Prosek's mural will be painted over ... and he's excited about that|
I'm signing off now in favor of some more family time. I hope all's well with you.
