Back Yard Baby


Sawyer, Bruno and I all love our back yard ... and we sometimes fight over the new swing (ignore the lumber underneath, those will be living room shelves someday, hopefully) ...

Fifth Grade Graduation

Another one of those moments that you think will never come, and yet when it does, it seems to have come much too quickly after all. My oldest is leaving elementary school. How did that happen?!?

With a morning graduation ceremony, followed by breakfast out with Aunt Kelly and us, then a fifth grade skipping school / graduation party at one of the local clubs for a swim party.

So serious after he came off the stage ...


With Aunt Kelly, Grammy and Pappy ...

With one of our favorite teachers / tutors ever, Mrs. B ...


With Mom and Dad ...


With his amazing (and we couldn't have survived without her) 5th grade teacher, Mrs. J ...


Someone is a little excited to be done not only for the year, but forever, with elementary school ...


With Mom and Dad ...


With Grandpa (Grandma is there, too, she just doesn't do pictures) ...


With his buddy H at the pool party ...

Being Thankful

Another school year coming to a close ... another large group of teachers, therapists and support staff to be thankful for.



And that means a whole lot of cookies (loving my new stand mixer to help with these mass cookie days)! Sawyer wanted to try some out after school ... and Bruno really wanted to help him!
