Friday was our last day with students, so I am hoping to update this here blog a bit more regularly through the summer. In the meantime, since we’re working the ten-o-clock hour already, here are a few to catch you up on May.
I took William and Clara to get their summer grooming. William was better at getting a haircut than Clara. Halfway through hers, Clara said, “I don’t want to,” but fortunately, I had a few Laffy Taffies in my purse to keep her seated. William, however, seemed to like the clippers surfing around his head.
I’m sad his hair is gone and didn’t intend to say “yes” to clippers, but it’s a long story—one that involves a certain three-year-old thrashing through my purse while the hair stylist too slowly scissored away at his locks.
After. Yes, even with the smile, it’s a bit sad.
Clara’s new thing is to wear overalls with William.
She’s riding a bike now, thanks to Aaron’s early morning Saturday trips to the park while I stay back and clean the house, Tasmanian Devil-style.
I was innocently walking down our English hallway when some rambunctious eleventh grader karate-chopped my temple with a door. I had this shiner for a few weeks.
We went on a short but very sweet vacation with Tim and Sam and Jack. Actually, we crashed their vacation for a couple nights. Here’s Uncle Tim with the happy William.
Clara practiced fishing with Dad and William on the dock.
Out to lunch after a stroll through the perfectly quaint town of Ellijay, Georgia.
The house that Tim and Sam rented was the most beautiful work of manmade art I have ever slept in. I could get used to a hot tub on a lanai outside my bedroom.
I also like this one because William is always yanking Clara’s hair, and Clara is always being pretty tolerant.
First try at a cousin shot. We’ll keep working on it. Clara is pretty protective of Baby Jack.
The light’s not the best, but these family shots are few and far between. I thought it was worth a post, nevertheless.
We had our first beach day of the season today. Pictures of that to come. Really.
