Life continues to be rich and full in the Miser Family household. This last week of May has brought a roller coaster of hot/cold blazing/pouring calm/stormy days, and it's a bit like the rest of my activities are similarly difficult to categorize. I did math, and brick repair, and long walks with people who have advice for the next Associate Dean, and things like that.
In the same paradoxical vein, I-daughter is relieved/sad to not make it to the next round of Sock Madness. She made the most of her extra time to read an awesome book just in time for her book group, and also mow a lawn that needed it. This is the farthest she's made it in Sock Madness in many years, so even though she's kinda sad not to move on, she's also pleased with how well it's gone and with the extra time she'll have in future weeks.
Really, the big news in our corner of the word is about Y . . . who is now Dr. Y, thank you.
Apparently, describing things to babies works, because Y made it happily into med school. She calmed our family down when we were in a bit of a tizzy over N-son's diabetes diagnosis; she continued to trade bad puns with my guy, and she has some of our most creative Family Fun Foto contributions! She'd come back to visit people in our town, and she'd play (awesome) piano in our church (below is a screen shot; I still attend church remotely).
And that's the news from our family, which continues to be wealthy in our adventures. May you and yours be similarly prosperous.
