WTH World, Why Are You So Weird (Edition C)

Random odd things that can only mean I’m weird, and I’d like your to accept it.

Goodreads just let me know that I’ve read “In Praise of Slowness: Challenging the Cult of Speed” for nearly two years.

In Praise of Slowness
I’m so good at this!

What is in this truck? X-Men? Pod people?

Weird Truck Cargo
I kept waiting for one to roll out and the apocalypse to begin.

Scott after I’m all ARE YOU AWAKE YET: I’m in the important ‘pre-moving’ phase. Ah, yes. My cats are in the phase constantly.

This is also her “are you worth moving for?” face. Scott gets that one as well.

The size of the tissue box I brought to my daughter’s preschool graduation.

Tissues
For when I end up in someone else’s blog for being ridiculous I can claim copyright takedown.

I know I’ve been sporadic on my blog. I’ve aimed to write 2-3 times per week on Late Enough, but as the summer attacks, I will probably write less until I hit my rhythm in early July. I will also use that time to learn how to spell “rhythm” so I don’t have to watch my spell check basically point out that I’m so far off base it replies: Yeah right.

yeah right
Literally.

Perhaps I should have made this one into 5 blog posts. I would’ve been all set. {sigh}

Goodbye Forever Preschool

My daughter graduates from preschool this week. I have mixed feelings on the subject mostly because I watched a video that made me WANT A BABY RIGHT NOW.

But this is our last preschool go around as far as I know and it makes graduation just a little bittersweet. Mostly for me since I think she’s happy to hang out all summer long in her pajamas with me and E and Scott.

This year has been so full of change and growth. She began reading and writing stories. She’s learning math and fell in love with science. But the best part of her school work is she puts a tiny, stick-figure dog on everything she does. EVERYTHING.

I circled it for you just in case you thought it was a rainforest creature.

It’s like I gave birth to the artist formerly known as my daughter. I hope she never stops.

Her confidence level over the last year has skyrocketed. She’s speaking up for herself and trying new things like gymnastics and ice skating and the Tower of Terror!

Six months and a world apart.
TowerofTerror
Tower of Terror maybe didn’t go as well as gymnastics, but she was proud of herself for doing it.
Ice skating lesson
Her first lesson was made even more spectacular when she fell and got right back up again and skated.

I love our moments together, and I’m so proud of this amazing girl!

On Mary's Rock
I focusing very hard on taking this photo and not on the giant drop behind us.
My Rockstar
Rocking out to Frozen. Shhh, mom don’t help.
Sunglasses family
The two coolest kids in school.

I’ll miss having as much time together to goof off as she ventures on to elementary school (after 12 weeks of summer but STILL).

Happy Graduation Day to my favorite girl in the whole world, and thank you for making me a better person.
