Week 13 June 25-29

What a Week!

This week was HOT and Busy. There were ups and downs but mostly ups on the thermometer.
This week I got to welcome a beautiful new baby girl to the world, congratulations to L&A!!! I got to welcome Lane home for a few weeks, congratulations to me! I also felt the loss of a great man. He was a teacher whose wisdom and knowledge stretched far beyond the subject the matter on his syllabus.
And now I am busy packing for vacation. Subsequently, this week's blog entry is going to be more of a photos essay (and not a very good or inspired one). Next week there will be no entry as I will be in the UK!

Make no mistake, we are drowning in tomatoes. You will not see a tomato picture here as I am taking a vacation from them as well.
