I didn't blog once this sumer.
I could give a million reasons why, but the truth is I spent time with my children when I wasn't painting.
I'm not sorry.
I'm ready to get back to it, so here's my summer condensed.......
We had a preschool graduation.
(which doesn't really count since she's going back to pre-school for one more year. Next year -Xanax.)
An elementary graduation.
Oh, my, did he ever hate the tie.
Notice my neighbor turned photo bomb. His daughter looks on in embarrassmnet.
We had a sudden, totally unexplained swollen eye one day.
I leave the kiddos with the husband, my daughter's eye swells shut.
Lilly's Dear, (my mom), taught Lilly how to sew a button.
Her fingernails were wonderfully grime-free for this close up.
Sweet little hands...
We went to the strawberry patch.
It's in the middle of nowhere.
Well, in the middle of nowhere next to a really strange, mid-century modern house that looks like the Jetson's.
We had a mom and her 3 racoon babies living in a tree in our backyard.
We watched them, or they watched us, while we would eat on the deck.
See the eyes?
We went to the beach with my family.
It is seriously my favorite week of the year.
Lilly and my dad.
My kids with their "depression era" stares.
You're at the beach, smile for pete's sake.
We roasted marshmallows (covered in sand) on the beach.
Lilly and Baker fought over the ipad.
Sometimes they shared.
Lilly had a birthday too.
We had a pool party.
The weather was perfect, and all her friends came to swim and get sugared up.
A lot of my friends live for throwing a birthday party.
I'm not in that club.
I like 'em short and sweet.
This was a fun group of moms.
Thanks, Baker for the goofy look.
Tomorrow----some actual furniture pictures and this summer's flea critters.
