Easy-going dinner with friends. Friends who just so happen to have a sweet baby girl. Aww...
It was a night of babies...
...and battle axes. (Huh?!)
Oh, for the love of baby snuggles!!!!! You better believe I got in on that action, too!

First day of workboxes. My friend Julie called me last week to tell me she had tried workboxes with her son. Her son who, let's just say, has a LOT in common with my own. She was raving about them. Here's how dense I am. I had read about workboxes here almost a year ago, but because this particular blogger did them with actual BOXES placed on the hutch of a desk (or a bookshelf), I dismissed the idea due to lack of space for that sort of thing. My friend, however, purchased a scrapbook organizing cart with 10 drawers. And made those the workboxes. (Duh.) The idea is the child has to complete the activity in the first drawer before moving to the next drawer. When all have been completed in sequence, he/she is finished with school for the day. With the exception of a few minor distraction and discipline issues this week, these may be just what the
mommy needed doctor ordered!

So thankful for this sign on a day when we roll up a couple of minutes past our appointment time and, of course, can't find a parking place.
Is that building not the weirdest looking thing you ever saw in your whole life????!! I am constantly perplexed by it. I mean, what genius thought that looked good?

We took student portraits today for fun. Had to take them on the back patio during a downpour! Yeah, that was interesting.

More peaches (and watermelon and okra...), please.
It's still HOT here. Just in case you were wondering. Let me tell you something: rainy days are bless-ed things. Bless-ed. *sigh* Is it starting to cool down in other places? School starting up? I'll be checking in with Sara's crew to find out!
