On Friday I was so excited because it was the day for me to remember to pick up my cap and gown! And I did NOT forget! At The Writing Center I was so excited about what I had in my backpack. I told my mom that it was there and she said we could wait until we got home to open the package. At home I wanted to iron it right away so my mom asked me if I wanted to skip the library movie in order to iron my gown. NO WAY I did not want to skip the library movie. So we went to see Argo I liked the movie because it was in Los Angeles where Matthan is going to school and because it had the Hollywood sign in it. I saw the Hollywood sign last year when I was visiting Matthan. Anyway, it was scary in the middle with a happy ending. Those are always the best movies.
On Saturday morning I slept in a little bit because I was tired from staying up late to watch the movie. I was a little late for swimming which was okay. My mom picked me up after I called her on my cell phone. We went to the doctor’s office. She suggested I take my pot holder bag but I didn’t want to take it. It was very boring just to sit and wait in the waiting room. My mom finished a pair of socks and I wish I had made some pot holders. Oh well, next time I will know about the doctor’s office.
We went to the library after that and we picked up the movie Troy because my mom wants us to have an idea about Achilles, Hector, Helen, and Agamemnon. I guess we are going to listen to their story in the car on the way to California for Spring Break. Crazy mom. But it is okay because I like to watch movies. My friend Rebecca came for lunch and she brought spring flowers: daffodils—they did not look very pretty on Saturday but Sunday morning . . . Wow! They were big and full and yellow.
After lunch I had to practice my violin before I could iron my graduation gown. My mom helped me a little but mostly I ironed it all my myself. I was careful to get the wrinkles out and not let the iron get too hot. Of course, I wanted to try it on to see how it looked. I am so excited about graduation. We looked at the calendar and June 1st is a Saturday—not a Blue Day and not a Gold Day. My mom said, `It will be a Happy Day . . . yes, and maybe a little bit sad too because high school will be all done and you have had so much fun in high school and you might miss it when it is all done.’ Well, I don’t think so. June 1st will be a Very Happy Day! (Click here to read about Graduation Day and click here to read about thoughts on graduation.)
We worked on finding my Spring clothes and I especially wanted to find my green dress for St. Patrick’s Day. At church on Sunday I saw lots of friends wearing green clothes. It was fun to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day even though I am not Irish. My mom said that he was a missionary to Ireland and he explained the mystery of the Trinity by using the three leaves of the Shamrock. In that way we can all be Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.
Grandma and Grandpa took us to the restaurant after church. I ate scrambled eggs, a biscuit and bacon. It was good. Grandpa told us about his trip to the Grand Canyon. It sounds like fun to hike down to the river and back up again. Maybe I can do that some day too. We couldn’t play Muggins this weekend because he was tired and because my mom has a lot of things to do before we go to California for Spring Break.
Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! I will eat green vegetables for supper: broccoli and brussels sprouts and then I will eat green ice-cream. I wonder how it will taste.
