In the Classroom - I volunteered to help out for Charlie's in class field trip about structures. Oh boy, talk about not knowing what you are getting yourself into. I had thought that I would be supervising a group of children as they learned about structures. What actually happened was I supervised multiple groups of children as I taught them about structures.

Movie Night - On Saturday we tried to download and watch the Muppet Movie. Sadly, it took forever to download and we ended up watching some crappy movie on Netflix. I can't tell you how much I miss Blockbuster.

Proof - This picture wasn't meant for the future. It wasn't meant to look back on as proof that I existed. This picture was to remind my self that I exist - today. I've been so busy taking care of everyone else, busy with my nose in my school books and ticking off the boxes on my To Do list that I have forgotten that I am an actual person. So here is proof. I am alive.

Blossoms - We have lived in our home for seven years. Season after Season, the crab apple tree that grows in the neighbours yard has been my muse. This year, it is the subject for my Unit Six lighting assignment. Check it out.

Reflected - Another photo of a crab apple blossom. This time, an Instagram photo of it reflected on my patio table.

Best Brothers Ever - Charlie is a proud reader and we are proud of him. When he started the school year in September he was at a level C. Now, in April he is at a level L. Way to go Buddy! He loves to read to anyone who will listen. On Thursday, his brother did his nightly reading homework with him.

Eggs - Another shot taken for my photography class. I can't wait to be finished. I kind of miss my life.

Biomedical - I had the chance to attend a seminar on Saturday on the emerging trends in Autism/ADHD/OCD. It was both interesting and overwhelming. I came home with my head spinning with information looking for a glass of wine. I wonder what the biomedical doctors would say about that?

Big Kids, Big Mess - I used to think that the older my kids grew to be, that they would naturally clean up after themselves more. I was wrong. The older they get the bigger mess they can make. Seriously, if you don't believe me you don't have teenagers in the house. Kenzie and her friend Emily made smoothies this afternoon.

Sharp - On Monday, we went to visit Gramma. You never know what you are going to get when you visit with her. Some days, she is easily confused and emotional, other days she is sharp and funny. Thankfully, this was a sharp and funny visit. I love those.

Sun Kissed - I love his freckles and his dark eyes. He makes my heart melt.

The Details Within - Sometimes I get so focused on the big picture that I miss the little details. Or - I am so focused on one specific detail that I miss something else. Last night, I was so intent on the goal of finishing my classes, that I lost sight of all the small victories that I've gained. It's also true for this picture. My eye was so drawn to the light in the maple tree, that I completely missed seeing the bird in the grass.
