Project 365, Week 20

Do you ever have those weeks that are just too boring and too long and you wonder what you've done with your life, only to look back on the pictures and realize how really wonderful your life is?
That's how this week was for me.

I know life is good and sometimes, boring is a blessing.

However, last weekend was anything but boring.  
I drove to Maryland and back to take Quincy and some friends to Key Leader camp,
I got to visit an old family friend while I was in MD,
and when I was home (May 14), I attended my son's JROTC's end of the year awards.
He did well, I tell ya.

May 15
The week was full of rain, rain, rain and more rain.
Watching it fall was a good quiet activity.

On May 16th, a blue-tailed skink thought that my house might be a nice safe and dry place to hang out.
We told him that we weren't taking any boarders and that he had to go back out on the streets... 
so sorry.

May 17th brought us more rain, but apparently, May showers bring May flowers.

Kevin usually gets a ride home from school with a friend, but May 18th found me waiting outside in the car for him to be released from Drill team.

On May 19th, we declared it "Sander skip day" and I took all the kids out of school so we could get together with some friends, but we managed to get home in time for riding lessons.

And finally, on May 20th, we did pretty much nothing special, but I did get a pic of Julia while we were playing outside.

I can totally relate - I often feel as though my life it a blur of monotony, but when I stop and look back, there are some precious moments that I have to stop and savor! Great job with your photographs!

I love the idea of a family skip day! Everyone needs those once in a while. Also, fun shoot in the rain!

Love the riding lessons- I had them when I was about 10 or 11- it is a very fond memory in my childhood. & a HUGE CONGRATS to your son- that is definitely something to be very proud of!
