It’s here! She has a moving up ceremony tomorrow off campus, but today is her last day of school…at school. This kid has grown up so much this school year. She doesn’t look drastically different, but she is drastically different. More confident (not like confidence has ever been a problem with Miss Thing).

So May was…eventful. We went to Mexico for a family vacation and celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary there. And while we were on the plane, I got a job offer. That I’ve accepted….

Today was our 10th wedding anniversary, I can’t believe how quickly that went. It feels like we’ve lived such a lifetime since our wedding day, but also…it was brief.

We’re celebrating in Mexico. This month is a whirlwind, with big, exciting things happening I’m not quite ready to announce yet. But I’ve also been planning and preparing for this trip, so I really haven’t posted much. I’m working on that, but for now. This is where I’m at.

I’m juggling a lot as May gets started, and I haven’t posted in 2 weeks. I’m getting over strep throat for the THIRD time since the beginning of April, and we’re getting ready for a family holiday this month. But April was a great month, with a spring break trip to Mystic, CT and my first quilt finish of 2017 (I know, it only took until April).

A spring tutorial! Hannah’s been more and more interested in flowers this year as they bloom all over. She’s been picking dandelions everywhere we go, and digging holes in the mulch in the backyard with the gardening tools her grandparents gave her. I do not have a green thumb, but she’s fascinated.

I am still trying to get a handle on my collage game in a post-Picasa world. It’s not pretty, but I’ll get there. Adam tells me I’m the last person on Earth who just wants a grid template of vertical pictures. I’m very old fashioned in my collage, apparently.

He got neutered a few days ago. I did actually get out my Silhouette Cameo and decal his cone. Not the first day he came home, that was just too much sadness for the world. But as he’s recovered, and just bangs into walls and runs in circles because he can’t scratch himself, I couldn’t help myself.

It’s always time for a haircut when I go into “bun phase” or “Detective Odafin Tutuola phase.” I didn’t make it to Fin Phase, but I was sporting a lot of buns. I hadn’t had a cut since last July. I got it cut almost two weeks ago, but I am behind on life after Miss H’s 5th birthday.

I miss Picasa. It could be such a pain about some things, but it was perfect for making collages with a ton of photos. I haven’t found anything better for them to replace it.
