Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Skylar has had her recognition ceremony. I came home to drop off her grandmother, who can only stand -- and be stood -- a few hours in public and to charge my camera battery. Here's a shot which, if you compare it to the one from August, 2004 in my previous entry, demonstrates how much my daughter has grown:

Almost as tall as her Mom now

And here's a shot that shows off her whole ensemble, posed before some of the Civil War paraphernalia that has defined the fifth-grade experience for her and her parents. It's only appropriate that our Mary Lincoln be coupled with an image of her "husband":

Skylar in her graduation dress from Macys

Now I'm headed back to the school to witness the traditional fifth-grade water fight and other delights, for which she will be wearing something less awesome and more practical.

I love that picture of President Lincoln. What's it composed of?

Bill, it's made of lots of other photos of the Civil War. I agree that it's most cool.

Love that dress--and the jacket is divine! A perfect pairing for a lovely young woman. Please give my very best wishes to Skylar.

It was an even better look than the photo indicates. Fluorescent bulbs of the old school have a way of making everything duller.

Oh, and I've passed on your good wishes. What a day. It went great, but we are all exhausted.
