Not an Art Thursday post

Just about a month from now I'm set adrift, with a diploma for a sail and lots of nerve for oars.

Hello! I am preoccupied with Dash's graduation and his birthday, so I don't have an Art Thursday post for today. (We're having an early graduation celebration for pandemic reasons.) (Has it been four years since his last graduation already??)

Look what I found? The first day of kindergarten.

This is a bonkers time to graduate. I would be more concerned about Dash finding his way if he hadn't sought out "the road less traveled" on a regular basis. I worried when his part-time jobs in college had overnight hours (I am a huge fan of sleep!), but it certainly prepared him for challenges. 2019 was probably his most challenging year least it was until 2020 came along!

Congrats, Class of 2020! You are one-of-a-kind!

Congratulations, Dash!

Cute photo of him on his first day at kindergarten. Smart kid then, smart kid now!

Congratulations, Dash! Your matrix of options has just expanded and contracted at the same time, but I'm sure you'll work it out.
