on kippers and castles

Hey peeps!

Much has been happening around our joint, but I almost don't even have the words. It's all a jumble in my head-- an IKEA trip here, a barbecue there. The way my fellow camp carpooler summed it up (when she ran out of gas in her own driveway) was to say "Summer has a different rhythm, and I haven't quite figured out how to handle it." Amen, girlfriend.

AND my PayPal account was hacked a while back, leaving me with that "exposed britches" feeling that doesn't pair well with chatting with y'all about my days. It's one of those 21st century first world problems, right? But that's not to say we're not having fun! Loads of it. Anyway, I'm back for a quick chat before returning to the breach once more--and by that I mean we're headed to the mall to try on some ill-fitting jeans and feed our jonesing habit for Chick-fil-A. Best part about the south, y'all.

Before I get back to it, here's a quickie list of some goings-on round here:

1. While eating kippers, dad and daughter discussed their future trip to Denmark (where the kippers are made) to see real princesses and castles. Future high school trip plans at work, while mom tears up feet away at the kitchen counter. My baby is all grows up!

2. I'm networking for my doula gig and am still happy with my chosen field. Also still thinking about taking nursing classes next year. {squeal} We'll see.

3. Camp was great!! Vivi came home diriter every day, and her nine-year-old carpool buddy taught her to tie her shoes. One step closer to independence.

4. We are adventuring into potty training, of the roll-up-the-carpets-and-pee-on-the-floor-for-three-days variety, and I'm sure I'll have much to say about that process next week. Wish me luck.

5. We had a great photo session with a friend of a friend while we were home in Georgia, and she and I became fast buddies. And get this...they are moving to Boston. Woo hoo! She is a wonderful photographer with a photojournalist's eye and a portraitist's sweet talking. You can click the photo below to see more of our great session...

Have a great weekend! See you back here on Monday, promise.
