On the 6th of July, my grandmother (mom's mom) turned 94 years old. Here she is looking at a photograph of herself on her wedding day 70 years ago. (My grandparents' anniversary is her birthday)
Oliver was born on July 8th, adding to the list of wonderful things in this world.
Summertime always means trips to see our families. Here are some of Jeremy's family (I'm marrying into a good-looking family huh):
My mom and her "grand-dog"
My brother got a dog a little while ago. Her name is Lola and everybody wanted to keep her. (Here she is trying to get the last bit of my Spanish coffee. On a spoon. Then on the glass.)
Some baby robins just about to learn to fly - poor things were pretty crowded in that nest, including a fourth one who basically was stuck at the bottom. He didn't leave the nest until a full day after his siblings were gone.
There have been some pretty impressive sunsets so far this summer.
And the view from the boat has been amazing as always...
When I got home from the lake, the first thing I did was check the garden.
In less than a month, the new school year begins. Along with my career. As excited as I am to start teaching, I intend to enjoy August just as much as July.
Back soon! (for real this time)
