Photo a Day Challenge: June 13 – Frame

challenge frame

We just wrapped up a weekend of joy.

We watched Elise cross the stage with friends on Saturday, turn her tassel, and set her eyes on college. Spirited and memorable speeches. Friends and family and fried chicken. A day to recognize a 13-year race finally won. And a new one to begin.

Friends and family dropped by for fellowship and fruit and cheese and frames.

The word for today, frame, took up two tables on Sunday. Grandparents and aunts and uncles got their pick of photos of Elise. Soccer Elise, prom dress Elise, Elise in a burgundy dress in the falling leaves at Frank Liske Park.

Everyone went home with gummies or M&Ms and left sweet words and also funny words on a signable frame that Elise will keep.

A day for Elise isn’t something she’s totally comfortable in. Instead, she enjoyed each visitor, then sat with me to talk about gym memberships for the summer so she could start her off-season workouts – her sights, set on bigger days.

    1. Thanks, Tamieka! So proud of her. She’s headed to Warren Wilson College in the Pre Vet program, and to play soccer.

      The challenge has been a blast so far … can’t believe it’s half over.

  1. I could feel your pride swelling in your chest, with each sentiment. This is my favorite “pic” post so far. Congrats to Elise and Best Wishes for her future ventures… You both are lucky to have each other!

  2. Congratulations Elise! May the next thirteen years be filled with accomplishments, joy, peace and happiness. Wonderful way to write the response to the prompt, Eli.

    1. Thanks Lulu! The day went off in near perfection, and there’s an aspect of it I’ll write about for tomorrow.

      I’m checking out your challenge now – I hate to turn down the challenge of another challenge.

  3. I love the one with the soccer ball!!! 🙂
    Congrats to her on a race well run – of that I have no doubt. Nice idea of a frame that everyone signs.

    1. Me too, Rore. What I love most is how she’s getting ready for college. There’s a message on the one everyone signed that begins, “I used to hate you in kindergarten.”

      Don’t worry, it turns out well …
