Today was a GREAT day!

I am exhausted due to very little sleep the night before (Darn Mom and her planting good books to read in my "visit" room)
Today, I was so fortunate to see a childhood friend inducted on to the Wall of Fame at our elementary/junior high school. Caprice and I have been friends since we were five years old, she has always been one of the most positive and inspiring influences in my life. Even though we lost touch for a few years, she is still the same lovely and amazing lady she always was. She was added to the wall of fame for her AMAZING ART and it was so wonderful to see her and her mom, Elizabeth, that I was very close to tears.
I was also fortunate to meet up with two of my old teachers, Mrs Lawlor and Mrs Sheen.
Mrs Lawlor, my grade 3 & 7 teacher, is still the splendidly tough, "Find a chair and park it!" that she always was (she had said this to me in the past and again today!) It was surreal to actually be taller than her!
Mrs Sheen, my grade 2 teacher, always read to us in the afternoons "The Baby Whale, Sharp Ears" and, one of the contributing factors to my Miniature Obsession "The Littles" She has also become an Artist after being a teacher!

Caprice and me, She is just a wonderful Artist and an even more amazing person!
