A day for Recitals and Scholarships

Noah had a piano recital today. He has had 2 a year for the last 9 years. He is not nervous, he is not excited, only annoyed to be doing another one. Lucky him, lucky us.

Bea was nominated by her harp teacher for a merit scholarship at Eastman. We were so very proud of her. She is a hard worker and enjoys playing her harp (and piano).
She was a little nervous about walking across the stage. I made her promise to stop and quickly look at me so I could get a picture of her. It was quick!

The Jazz Festival is taking place now and we enjoyed a few minutes of a high school jazz band afterwards-no one famous at this venue. Noah loves to annoy Bea. Bea loves to be annoyed by Noah. Right?


Make Way for Ducklings

We came across this busy mama as we were leaving our neighborhood.

The curb was too high for the ducklings to jump.
Can you imagine 10 babies at once?

Hello Friday, Hello Weekend

Good Morning, Sunshine Girl.

So happy to go to school.
She matches the bus.

Look who has agreed to go running with Darren--Noah and Bea. Amazing.
This is a major development.

And, they are off.  Good Luck.

Have I mentioned, I love June?

Team Photos

This is Bea's team. They are 3rd and 4th graders. There seems to be quite a height difference between the two grades. We'll see if she seems tall next year when she is playing as a 4th grader.

Celebrating with Ben and Jerry's after the game. I love summer nights!
Cameron, Bea, Carly, Emily and Annabel

Pool Visitors

Today we had a couple of new visitors to our pool.

Winnie was the first to notice them from her spot at the back door.
I was able to run and get my camera and keep Winnie in the house so I could get a few pictures.
They just ignored me and kept right on swimming.
Winnie's barking finally got their attention and off they flew.
