The last two weeks have gone by in a blur.
Here's a recap ...
The first week of summer, Jay & I spent 2 days sitting in a seminar that the state requires all teachers to take.
I DID learn some great stuff.
I also was highly entertained by the speakers.
One of our speakers said "right" 135 times in a 2 hour time frame.
And yah, I tallied it.
Another one said "um" 120 times in an hour and a 1/2.
I spent the next two days finishing my report cards, cleaning my classroom, and frantically driving my reports off to the mailing center before the "absolutely-not-past-this-deadline" deadline.
Once our work was done, we were able to break our new Nikon out of it's box.
It literally sat in it's box for 2 weeks before we opened it.
Such a crime.
We've been spending some of our summer evenings at my parents house. They live on Lake Washington.
We took a quick trip to Spokane for Father's Day, Jay's birthday, and Tricia's wedding shower.
It was a really fun weekend and it was so nice to see Jay's family again.
Jay's sister Tricia and her beautiful daughter Tatum ...
I guess Jay took this when I wasn't aware, but I love this picture.
I also love this swing that Jay's parents have in their backyard.
The best part about summer is that all the neighborhood kids come out to play.
I hope you've all had a great few weeks.
More pictures and adventures to come!
