|August 26 - September 1, 2016|
I realized when I made the above collage how appropriate a collage is to capture our family's life right now. It seems as if our days are so busy and full that I only remember it in flashes of images caught during the whirlwind of our days.
|We saw this tortoise on one of our trips back and forth from college, and we stopped so that Sam could take this picture.|
On Mondays I drive Sam and Katie to their college (one hour away). They are there for almost 12 hours, taking classes and eating meals there.
On Tuesdays I drive Sam in for one class, so I wait there and then drive him home. Tuesday nights Quentin has his fencing lesson. Next week that will increase to two nights a week as he has now entered the Intermediate class.
Can you pick out which one is Quentin? Hint...look for the shortest one in class.
Quentin is really enjoying his Intermediate Fencing class, and is going between 2 to 3 times a week. After fencing for two hours, he is quite tired and drenched with sweat, but he is learning lots.
|Quentin's Voice instructor warns him that he needs to go higher on the next note he is to sing.|
On Wednesdays, I drive Katie and Sam to college, but this time I bring Quentin along so that I can take him to his Voice lesson, which is about 20 minutes farther from the college.
|This is a very typical sight these days.|
Thursdays and Fridays are catch-up days for us all. We usually entertain guests on those evenings.
|Midas is sad that everyone is out of the house more lately, He tries to prevent us from going by putting his head on the backpacks as we ready to go.|
|I saw this beautiful little cake in the bakery case of a little cafe in my Oncologist's building. I thought it was so cute, I had to snap a picture of it.|
On this particular Thursday I had my 3 1/2 year check-up with my Oncologist. You can read more about that here.
| September 2-8|
Quentin is working on writing his own survival role-playing game.
We all enjoy walks down to the beach from time to time.
James has become interested in the butterflies that are attracted to the water in our driveway.
