Just 2 more (half) days!

Just a little bit farther is all I have to go... The last two days are 1/2 days, and really, it'll be lots of grading/cleaning/and summer well-wishing. I'm pooped. Last night was graduation and I got awfully teary watching some of the dear ones start off on their way to big, big things.
About a month ago, I brought a picture of my Grandma to one of my painting students and commissioned an oil painting. She (Janet) delivered it this week, and I'm absolutely loving it. I keep thinking about the parts that she got exactly right... The way my Grandma's hair curls and the exact spot it touches her neck feel like such intimate details for such a young artist to capture. It's 18"x24", any great bargains out there for nice framing in the cities?

That picture is beautiful! What a treasure. The girl's last day of school was yesterday. I am officially the mother of TWO middle schoolers. In a year Em is off to high school...not sure I can deal with that, good thing I have a year to go! Love ya, Beth

Michael's with a coupon is somewhat cheap...or try framing it yourself with a frame from there?
