(take 9)

 The last of my SEP conferences (aka Parent/Teacher Conferences). A rather arduous task as a teacher, but one I'm appreciative of as a mother.
 The stack of homework still not graded because of conferences.

 Papers on the floor.  The step just prior to putting them in the
circular filing cabinet.  This is the way we clear our stacks,clear our stacks, clear our stacks...

 A lovely late night visit from cute Colin and absolutely adorable Amy. We love it when we get to see them!

My sweet little nephew, Brennan (sorry, I don't know how to rotate my pictures), fast asleep on the way to a soccer game.  Three things: 1) I do not know how his neck did not break. sitting like that! 2) I love that he still has a hold on his toy. 3) Brennan stayed asleep through the entire game, despite his Uncle Michael doing 
such awful things to Brennan, as tapping on his forehead and plugging his nose!

I saw this little gem (someone please tell me how to rotate my pictures!) on the check out counter of a Middle School library.  I hereby commission someone to make me such a delightful reader statue, too!

This little darling is Nina.  After 3 and a half years, she has just about decided that she might like me.   It's okay.  Her two oldersisters are going on 5 and 7, respectively, and they still aren't sure they like me, either.  At least their parents do!
