around here

today is the day


the last day of second grade

it’s been a really great scholastic year for Lily

maybe even her best yet

and although she is excited for summer break, she has been super emotional this week over having to say goodbye to her teachers and friends

some of which will not return next school year


bitter sweet right?

happy friday friends!

a dinner out and sleepover with a bestie from first grade

spring light feels so good

the mantel with new work done by Lily

and a painting not done by me or Lily but by a friend and talented artist

finally took her to see chihuly at the biltmore

a birthday party

a second grade awards ceremony. she got an award for creativity, reading, art and spanish
