This is a pic. of Libby and Jordyn. Jordyn is the daughter of my very best high school friend, Jennifer. They had a great time playing together...until it was time to share the one pair of dress-up shoes, but what girl wouldn't argue for a good pair of glitter shoes, right?
It was literally imperative that Libby take swimming lessons this summer. Why is that, you ask? Well, in case you've never had the pleasure of meeting Libby, she is fearless. By this I mean she will run and jump into a pool, knowing good and well that she can't swim yet but arguing with you that she can swim just fine. So, it was either give the child swimming lessons, avoid the pool entirely, or super glue floaties to her little arms. Once she realized that maybe she wasn't the swim champ she thought she was, she did great and learned a whole lot during her swimming lessons....oh, and she LOVED being in the pool so much.
This is Janelle. She was my saving grace when I taught at Southaven Middle and is one of the truest most genuine friends I've ever been blessed to have. We went to see 'Wicked' together in Memphis and had THE BEST TIME. If you haven't seen it, you should consider it. It was truly amazing. I've seen several shows, but nothing has compared with this. I'm currently reading the book....it's a bit slow to start and rather unusual, but I'm staying hopeful. I'll let you know how it turns out when I finish it.
And let us not overlook the glorious cat bathing experience. This is Libby's cat, Sally the Camel Has Four Humps. Yes, you read that correctly. Seriously, what DID you expect Lib's cat to be named? Needless to say, we enjoyed the expression on her face much more than she enjoyed the bath.
I can't believe this summer has so quickly come to an end. I start my new teaching job on Monday, making today my official last day of summer. Bummer, bummer, bummer.
