I knew when my son, Matt, called me at work today something was up. He works for a landscaper full-time during the summer and managed to cut his left hand between the thumb and first finger with an electric hedge trimmer. Although he tried hard to avoid it, he ended up in the emergency room and finally arrived home around 5:30 with four stitches and a pretty minimal bandage. He was in a great mood, ate some dinner, and went off (as usual) to visit some friends. Ahh, youth!
A friend and I are off to CKC in Buffalo on Friday after school. Although I once went to a rubber stamp convention (years ago), I have never been to a scrapbook convention. I signed up for quite a few classes with two motives: learn some new techniques and limit the spending at the vendors. We'll see how it all works out. I'm hopeful it will be worthwhile. At any rate it will be nice to be away for a day or so.
We've received several emails and notes from friends who attended the wedding. It's nice to know that others felt the way we did (see below) about the whole event. I had such a good time. Loved meeting Adam's family and all his friends. Loved having all of Sarah's friends (most of whom I knew and all of whom I like) around all weekend. It's been a long time since we've had a four day party here. Actually this was probably our first four day party!
