it seems like the majority of our friends are in some sort of transition or another...with a new baby, or moving, or overseas adopting a sweet little one! i have been praying for God to give me opportunities to serve these friends, even while our time to hang out is less these days. the result: lots of playdates lately, while the mommies get some necessities done. we are pretty much done with school. we just have a few more math lessons to do and of course daily reading. i'm not sure that we will take the whole summer off, but it will definitely be a more relaxed schedule.

|don't tell them their popsicles are full of carrots!|
|oh, yes, miles has been potty training. he is doing great with pee, but prefers a diaper for #2. baby steps.|

the birds planted us some sunflowers! none of the ones we planted on purpose survived, so we are extra thankful for this one.
this weekend, we went to the house of adam's boss for a low-country boil. i forgot my camera of course, but it was tons of fun. these er guys live on the river and paddle board to each other's houses. what a strange world (i should add, that while we were gone, a police chase from another neighborhood ended on our street and it was shut down...out-of-the-ordinary, but sometimes it really does feel like our feet are in multiple worlds). it was cold, but so refreshing to play in the river. graham sat in a kayak tied to the tree and rowed contentedly for a good hour, while marit bravely curled up on the end of adam's paddle board and chatted his ear off while they paddled all over.
