Hello Monday

Hello Monday (a meme started by Lisa Leonard) . . .
Hello High School Graduate . . . Henry graduated last Thursday, and it was a wonderful day spent with family and friends, followed by three days of parties and celebration. 
Hello Summer School . . . two more weeks for Clara; five more weeks for me (teaching two nights a week). Sigh
Hello Costa Rica . . . Henry leaves in a few days for his senior class trip. What a life!
Hello Dog Walking at the Humane Society . . . Clara and I have been "promoted" from simply giving TLC to the dogs in their kennels to actually being able to walk them and play with them in the play yard.
Hello black berries and other summer produce . . . Paul and Clara went black berry picking on Saturday; we continue to get a CSA produce box each week filled with new and interesting food. I learned how to prepare fava beans last weekend. Not sure what this week's box has in store!
Hello to moving forward on our summertime plans . . . maybe a trip to the zoo because there's a baby tiger and a baby giraffe there now, and I hear they're growing really fast!
Hello to more 2013 Photography Scavenger Hunting . . .  I am so thrilled to see so many finds turning up on people blogs.  Plus the instagram feed at #summertimescavengerhunt is really filling up. I've got some finds to post soon, as well as a few links to post. 
What are you saying hello to this week?

Congratulations to your High School graduate! What a lovely photo of you all :o) I'm looking forward to this afternoon, when the last of my boy's exams will be over, and I can breathe again! We are looking forward to 'scavenging' together over the next few weeks.
