After surviving finals week, I'm already in summer mode by the time commencement begins.
|Midnight and the parking lot is still full during Dead Week.|
|My faculty award from the students this year made me laugh. Can you tell I taught Pchem this year?|
May is when my summer starts, but the boys are still in school. I start working part-time keeping H a couple days extra a week.
|The boys pretending to be "doctors."|
May brings sunshine (mostly) and more time for active fun...
|....posing by the first lilly, and picking up brothers at school.|
After a month of sprinting to finish up the semester, I think I notice the everyday good things a little more. Like brother and sister drawing together...
....and enjoying the fort that H got her brothers to build for her.
|We ate lunch together in the fort.|
We celebrated a winning soccer season...
...and took care of a doctor appointment.
|I love to see L Child drawing. Even more so? |
I loved getting a glimpse of how his brain works.
If you ever get to talk to him about his drawing process, you should.
I drag H to grocery shop during her nap time.
But no worries, she perks up and draws.
And the best part so far? I got to meet my beautiful new niece Logynn Whitley.
The boys were just as taken with her as they were with H almost three years ago.
And I also discovered that H is a baby hog.
She would exclaim, "She's wiggly!"
