Hello Aria dog . . . helping me check out the afternoon light in the living room in preparation for a family portrait session with the amazing Becky Ruppel. She came over on Sunday; I can't wait to see the photographs she took.
Hello packing . . . only four more nights before Henry heads off to college. I'll be driving him up on Saturday and staying in Oregon for about a week. I'll be doing some work projects, taking some interesting photographs and working on my faces/LSNED art journal. He'll be training with the club soccer team before he moves into the dorm on the 26th.
Hello work . . . I've signed up for a lot of conferences this academic year and committed to writing several articles/book chapters. It feels good to be getting back into my academic side, but it is a lot of work.
Hello work2 . . . there also seems to be an inordinate amount of committee meetings and administrative projects. Sigh.
Hello to preparing for the end of the 2013 Summertime Photograph Scavenger Hunt and the final link-up coming this weekend . . . I'm thinking I'm not going to have time to get to the zoo, so I'm posting this substitute item (person wearing an item that symbolizes your country). I'm thinking this gentleman symbolizes my country in oh so many ways! LOL!
Hello laundry, laundry and more laundry. . . It piles up when I'm really busy.
Hello to more cross-country meets and success for my awesome girl Clara . . . tomorrow is the third meet in eight days!!! She ran in a huge invitational over the weekend and came in 4th overall for the frosh-soph division (out of 465 runners). As she said, "Mom, who knew I was actually good at this?" Her frosh-soph team placed first as well. After this, she gets a break for about ten days and then participates in meets about once a week for the rest of the season.
Hello to obedience classes for the dogs (two more left), still volunteering at the humane society once a week, and lots of homework for the girl . . . no wonder I'm so busy!
Hello to LSNED on instagram . . . I haven't been able to keep up in my art journal but have been taking snaps and writing down lessons. And I feel okay with that!
Hope to see you all back this weekend for the final Scavenger Hunt link-up! That's when you'll let me know how many items you found and be entered in the final prize give-away (there's two prizes . . . one open to people who found all the items and one open to everyone who participated, regardless of how many items you found).
