still here

I'm still here.
Just not so much lately.

Summertime is officially in full-swing
with playing and swimming and heat and sunshine.

We're still doing lessons and reading our books since we don't actually
take an official break in the summer, but the book reading has been fantastic
(I love this book...so exciting!) and the lessons haven't been too bad either.

The girls just had their first sleep-over this week and the boys have
been preoccupied with their new toy (thanks to MawMaw!) and I'm
found most of the time with my head stuck in one of various other books, too.

These photos are from our last outing a couple of weeks ago to a local
resource center for browsing and a picnic.  It was a great day...a cool day.
And, as I suspected, it was definitely the last cool day of the spring.

The last two weeks have been none other than hot.  I mean h.o.t.  Scorching and dry....so insanely dry.  The afternoons have just begun  to darken, bringing in some almost showers, leaving us holding our breaths every evening...and hoping for just a bit of rain.

on a photography note, these were the film shots from the day I let my dslr batteries die.  It was Kodak Portra 400NC and for most of the outdoor shots it was definitely not the best choice, but the inside shots were good.  It was, however, the best at the moment since capturing the memories is what it's all about.
