ten on tuesday.

1. I feel like every post these days begins with an apology. But really, I can explain. I had the very best of intentions about posting more pictures/stories here with my genius new stay-at-home camera set up. And then I couldn’t find a camera battery, blah blah blah. I think it’s all good though now. Took my first picture tonight! So there’s that.

2. I got back on Sunday from a week in Dallas at the Texas School of Professional Photography. I cannot recommend it highly enough for my professional photog friends out there. I wouldn’t recommend going solo like I did though…it makes the “Anything But Clothes” party somewhat awkward when you’re not rolling with a posse. Or maybe that’s just me.

3. On Saturday I’m headed to my hometown to meet up with my five best high school friends for the first time in 17 years. I had to check my math to make sure that was right. Sadly, it is. It means two things: 1. I’m old 2. I’m terrible at keeping in touch. I seriously can’t wait to see those fools and all their little offspring!

4. Did you read this piece Rob Lowe wrote about sending his oldest son off to college? I’m renaming him Sob Lowe. Sheesh. You’ve been warned.

5. It makes me think of my very first class of kindergarteners who will be graduating this month in Dayton, Ohio. What I wouldn’t give to be there!

6. It’s Accelerated Reader crunch time for my kiddos who are trying to eek every possible point out of their reading program for the year. Ephraim is on a mission to read 18 books this week so he can be in the 100 point club, and Sarah is set to reach 300 points tomorrow. I’m proud of those little motivated readers!

7. School is out here in 13 days. Mind, blown.

8. Our Summer will be super short here but we plan to pack it all in – beach trips, Isle of Palms reunion, day camp, VBS, babysitter fun, pool trips…bring it on!

9. I fully realize that about two weeks into Summer I will remember how run-ragged I always get trying to play mama/activities coordinator/shuttle bus driver/small business owner. Bring it on?

10. Happy Tuesday friends!

I read the Rob Lowe piece and was completely taken by his ability to write…I saved it to share in my Soc of Family class when we discuss fatherhood.

Erin, I will read the Rob Lowe piece after graduation – you would be so proud of the CHS Class of 2014 – take credit for starting them off right by having a teacher who loved her profession. Only 5 days left of school for the Seniors and 9 more days til graduation. No doubt that there will be tears of sadness (that my little girl has grown up) and tears of happiness for the smart,kind,and funny young lady she has become. I wish you could be here to share in their special day – just as you were many years ago!

I will read the Rob Lowe post after graduation! We wish you could be here to see what a fine group of kids your first class turned out to be as they get to step out into the world! Only 5 days left of school and 9 days until graduation. I am SURE there will be tears as Sara walks across the stage to receive her diploma, tears of joy for the beautiful, smart, kind young woman she has become, and tears of sadness that she is growing up way to quick. I am sure I will be thinking of the first day I sent her away on that school bus to school, but never had any doubt that she was in good hands! I remember that morning before she got on the bus I told her that I would probably cry to see her go off to school, but it was because she was growing up so fast and that alot of mom’s cry the first day. Right before the bus came she told me that I could only cry until the bus was out of sight because she would be fine!

sorry for the double post – I thought the first one didn’t go through

Since graduation is a thing of the past, I came back to read Rob Lowe’s article – didn’t take long for the tears to start, what a wonderful and truthful article – luckily Sara won’t be too far away, but I can guarantee there will be tears when we help her move into the dorm – just as there was on graduation day!

I’m impressed, I must say. Actually rarely do I encounter a blog that’s each educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you could have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the problem is something that not sufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled throughout this in my seek for something relating to this.

You actually make it appear really easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I believe I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely large for me. I am having a look forward for your next put up, I?¦ll try to get the cling of it!
