Week 21: Favorites

I think I've already covered the fact that it's been a long week. A really long week. In other ways, it flew by, though. It was the last real week of school--as in work actually being accomplished by the students. Only three and a half days left. Wow. Still a lot of work to be done by the teachers this week.
I had to finish grading essays this week. Thankfully, the weather cooperated and I was able to take the kids to the park in the afternoons to play while I graded in the sunshine. It's so nice that they're self-sufficient on the playground so that I can get some work done when I need to!

Day 139: Kennedy is really growing up. We figured out that she could reach the sponge, the soap, and the sink handle with the aid of a stool, so she is officially a dish washer in our house now. Yay! (Especially since we don't have a dishwasher!)

Day 140: We had our staff picnic on Saturday. Cade and the son of my (former) job share partner were pretty entertaining to watch!

Day 141: The weather was beautiful again! Kennedy posed while we waited for Dad to meet us at the bus stop--I'd left my bus card at home--whoops!

Day 142: On Monday after school, we headed to Children's Grand Park and zoo for a little fun in the sun! A very impressive (free) park. Not a very impressive (free) zoo. More on that here!

Day 143: Another afternoon at the park. The kids found refuge from the sun in the tunnel while they ate their snack.

Day 144: It was hot, but I had bananas in the freezer, so we made a batch of banana muffins.

Day 145: Kennedy was extremely upset over something that Eric and I thought was hilarious. I had to get out the camera! Poor kid.

It was a pretty good week. Spending time in the sun with my two favorite kids is one of my very favorite things to do! I think my favorite shot this week is of Cade playing in the fountains. Not a great shot technically, but I love the joy on his face!
