CCH Reunion!

I spent the weekend back in my college stomping grounds at the Christian Campus House Reunion with these fine ladies.

I was a bit nervous for Friday night's BBQ as mingling is not my strong suit.  It really was a great time though.  I didn't feel forgotten and got to catch up with old buddies.  Our generation was well represented so there wasn't  a shortage of friendly faces.  I thought some of the hosts had practiced our names and stories, but it turns out they are just naturally that awesome at making us feel welcome.  Everyone looked exactly the same (if not better) than they did in college and seemed happy and fulfilled.  A testament to Jesus!  I can't say enough how grateful I am that this place and these people were part of my journey!

Saturday we walked around campus and downtown, went to The Flat Branch for lunch, and a little winery out of town for dinner.  We were late due to primping which made us arrive just in time for the torrential downpour thus negating the primping.  A hot tub follow-up did the trick to warm us up from our soggy supper.

(I have horrid posture.)

Sunday we had an old fashioned church on campus.  There were what may have been interpreted as three sermons, so no feeling shorted there.  I met up with Lisa and her baby, Jack, for lunch. (I am mad I forgot to take a picture!) A great way to cap off the weekend.

Baby Birds

Why are baby birds my favorite thing? (Next to baby humans of course.)

I missed these guys flying the coup, but they sure left a lot of poop behind as a thank you for the accommodations.

Daily Chores

Turns out there is a lot for an energetic young boy to do on his so called summer "break".
Mow the lawn.

Clean out his drawers.

Cook some dinner.

A little light gardening.

Errands. (New Shoes!)

And as always, dishes.

10 Months

Ah, ten months...the golden age of knocking down towers, opening and disassembling every drawer in the house, and generally leaving a wake of adorable mayhem until getting caught in a space too tight for one to back out of.  I was trying to be creative with this month's use of the age marking sticker.  A super hero cape perhaps? How many pictures of your son in a dish towel are too many?

Not quite the masculine hero pose, but I kinda love these.  All he needs is a bun.

 Flying practice.

Notice he still finagled the sticker right off his back.  Perhaps in these later months our labels are best used as warnings for the foods in our refrigerator.
