Hoppy Easter

We had a very happy Easter with an egg hunt in the house and a nice relaxing day! Thank you Grandma Cathy for all the fun Easter treats!

Wild Week

It was Spirit Week at school and there were predictions of a "mild washover event" (aka, the island would be mildly under water!). So, it was a little crazy around here.

Getting Things Done with Eric & Kylie

Autumn had two weeks of training in DC, so Kylie and I had two weeks alone. We missed her a ton, but got a lot done around the house!

Painting Scenery

As soon as we got back from our vacation, I started painting scenery and making props for the local production of the King and I. It was a great challenge, and it was pretty fun to work on such huge canvases. I had a few great student (and adult) helpers lend a hand too.
