On this, the last Thursday of summer (teachers go back next week for pre-planning week, then the 1st day of school for students is Aug. 24th) I am reminding myself to HAVE FUN! This summer I was able to unwind and "get rid of some cobwebs" (my Dad's words) emotionally. I was able to reminisce with childhood friends (I saw childhood neighbor friends Kristin S. and Amy B. when my family went to a motorcycle parade in my hometown. They both looked super and it was awesome to see them!) I was able to laugh until I cried, play S.crabble and board games, and have family time with my parents and sisters. I was able to be me!
Last summer my Mom set up an amazing play area in her basement for Emma. This year she added a "Dress-Up" corner complete with a mirror, hats, jewelry, shoes, purses, and lots of dress-up clothes. Show and Tell this week is a photo from my 2nd night of my family vacation in Ohio. Em was being cranky and didn't want to partake in the fun...but that didn't stop my Mom, sisters, and I from dressing up anyway. What a hoot!
Mom, Lal, Chel, and I
3 sisters: Me, Michelle, and Laurel (Also my sister Michelle's 2 dogs. She's holding Pixie, and Dylan is seated at her feet.) (For the record, one of my absolute all time fav pics of us! SO cheesy!)
Can anyone come up with a witty slogan to use if this were a photo on Christmas cards this year?
