Project 365: Week 25

Home, Sweet Home

The first three days of the week I was still working in Cincinnatti, OH--AP Spanish Readings.
Tuesday evening I left the city as soon as we were dismissed and was very glad to be home three hours later.
The next days I tackled the most urgent items on my list: complete final paperwork for the job; plant flowers; clear out stuff I brought back from the classroom. I'm still working on most of these but there is incremental progress.

So good to say one last goodbye to the administration building and our weekly staff meetings.

After that I invited myself to lunch at the daughter's and admired her decorated porch.

I started with the window boxes one day, then another day spent an entire morning on sprucing up the front garden area.

Friday was Sam & Kristie's 11th anniversary. Malachi is at summer camp and Elijah spent the night here to give them a break. We had a whole lot of fun: he helped me plant some of the downstairs flower beds; we watched snails and worms; we went for a walk and picked mulberries; collected trash; and more...

Grandpa took him for a ride on the ATV he just purchased this week.

And finally we went to Taylor Lake, where Elijah kept saying, "Watch me, Grandma, one more time!" 30 times.
I'm a bit late to wish Happy Father's Day, but hopefully not too late to join Sara's Project 365 circle. I trust you all had a good day. I travelled to see my dad and had a sweet time.

Sweet times with the kids...they must love the ATV and I'm sure they are learning quite a bit by helping you with flowers.
