Busy, Busy

These last couple weeks have been a whirlwind. Between preparing for the adoption with meetings and fingerprints and paperwork (lots and lots of paperwork....much due to CA bureaucracy), finishing up the school year, celebrating a birthday and adding shoe mouldings to the baseboards I installed last summer; not to mention daily bike rides, picnics, a trip down the southern coast....it's no wonder I haven't been here in a while.

Here are some recent photos. I'd post more but we're off to an end of the school year picnic with Gianna's charter school in a few minutes. I was asked to give her a grade for each subject she completed, and though I've never liked grading systems I'm pleased to say she got an "O" in every subject. :)

Aaahh, I could live right here with nothing
but a sleeping bag and a sandwich.

Mr. Ed let me borrow his pneumatic nail gun!

Oh, and last but not least I've been sketching like there's no tomorrow! (Something I'm really excited about. I'll share more about it later, I promise!)

Have a great day, everyone!

Hi Kristen! Beuatiful pictures...me too, me too. I would totally love to be there all day long reading a good book! So excited to hear that your getting ready for the adoption. Every little step is a step closer to your child! Have a beautiful day!
