This Week Is Worth Remembering...

This week was one I want to remember.
Because it was special.
Each and every single crazy busy sunny summer day!
My youngest performed in her first play.
She did a great job!
I am very thankful for her teacher 
who took the time to rehearse three different plays
 so that each student had an interesting role.
(the only trees in this play were painted on the backdrop : )

We enjoyed two of the best potlucks I have ever been too, and...
 Yes,  this recipe was brought to both.

We decided that we had witnessed a small miracle.
And that if we started looking close enough.
Miracles were all around us.

We are enjoying the most amazing summer weather.
I'm letting the kids stay up waaay tooo late.   
And it's been great.
OK, maybe a wee bit on the cranky side, but still, so worth it!
I was so proud of my daughter who took on a huge project.

And so happy she had a McGyver Dad who she can always count on.
(to be clear...Gum and paper clips were not involved. . . just tape and maybe a toothpick)

We said good bye
 to her school
 and classmates of ten years.

Did I mention the beautiful summer evening weather?

I may have mentioned it already?

Please bear with me.... I need to remember this. 

Again, and again....and maybe a little more after that.

It's important to my winter Phyche.

I had my first impromptu photo shoot and it was so much fun.
The grade nine girls were so beautiful.
I can't wait to share the photo's with you. . .  (if they'll let me?)

Time was spent choosing the perfect gift for The Agronomist...

We had a wonderful Father's Day!
...where I managed to catch this sweet shot of Grandpa laughing. 
(Something he has taught me to do often and easily.)
Thanks Dad.
My daughter's are so lucky to have such wonderful men in their lives!

...and that includes you too, Farm Grandpapa!

Did I mention the summer weather?

oh...I did?

I will want to unwrap this week again and again.  It was perfect in every way.
