The good report

1.  Megan is putting herself to bed. 
2.  Cousins' dance recital.  I teared up at some of the company performances. 
3.  I love the arts!
4.  A very encouraging talk from a friend. ( I've got problems that overwhelm me). 
5.  Elder Bednar's talk on repeat.  Every morning.  (see above)
6.  Preston and Sophia were at our house almost all day.....and no fighting between cousins!  So rare.  (too many bosses).
7.  Orange crush
8.  Back scratches.
9.  My favorite Jamba Juice, copy cat recipe.  We've been making it for weeks.  Love!

10.  Lizzy is saying more ACTUAL words. 
11.  And letting me rock her to sleep.  I don't mind the snuggle time.
12.  I need "the good reports" right now.
13.  I just love our house.  I mean really. 
14.  The laid back Summer schedule reminds me that I don't miss kindergarten AT ALL.
15.  Strangers telling me they love my hair.
16.  Travel trips from Alisha.  I might be a little over prepared for the drive to the family reunion.
17.  I found purple gingham for Jeffrey to wear for family pics.  and only $10. 
18.  This totally works.  Our shower is sparkling.  It's true that you can just wipe off all the dirt.
19.  Catching up with Holly.

(I love these photos.  But I think I've about had it with my cheap lab.  They get me with their cost.  But I can't take the inconsistent color anymore.  From the same roll!  Unbelievable. I'm trying to figure out how to justify more money on film. And I can't really, since this is for the love and not for the JOB.  Insert swear words.  Seriously.)

Around the house


My art wall(s).
I really dig it.

Kindergarten graduation

You should see the other shots I took.  Even more sour than this. 
It was really hot in the gym.  She was feeling sick (really, really hot).
So this is the best we could do. 

The program was adorable.
I'm glad kindergarten is over.
I was over it about four months ago, actually.

I chopped off all my hair


It was one of my bucket list things.
Before I turn 40. 

Halo palm


I just like this one too.

I can see your halo

Lauren noticed this palm leaf made a halo.
That's my girl!
Should I call this a collaboration, then?

This time, Meggie decided to join in on the halo project. 
Woot!
I'll certainly take any volunteer photography.
