keep up

Another semester is in the can, and yet another one is approaching quickly!
This news is one part Pointer Sisters' "I'm so excited! And I just can't hide it!" and two parts Adam Sandler Wedding Singer classic, "Oh somebody kill me please!"
Have I mentioned that I'm graduating in December?

About five months ago (maybe six... oh, geesh, has it been seven?!) I promised to post pictures of our house remodel/basement finishing, so...

Also, my children are growing. Rapidly. 
Carter is talking up a storm! Every day I think she learns 18 new words- mostly some variation of "NO!" and "NEVER!" and "YOU CAN TAKE MY LIFE, BUT YOU'LL NEVER TAKE MY FREEDOM!!!"
She is so cute and sweet and is thriving on all of the sunshine we have been having in recent weeks. 

Avery has finally grown apart from The Nightmare Before Christmas... and has immediately attached herself to Bill Nye the Science Guy of all people! We have rented all of his videos from the library over and over again, and, I must say, I love her new obsession. And her. To pieces.

Here is a photo snapshot of the last few months...

Life is really good right now. Except, of course, for when it's not. But trials and pain and fear and suffering are all a part of this mortal experience, and I think that my little family and I are riding the waves we have been given like Harry Potter rides his Firebolt. 
In other words, [golden] snitches really do get stitches.
Harry Potter nerd, out.
