The week in review

We've been spending a lot of time outdoors already. This is a common scene in the backyard.

Charlie's a little cautious of the slip-and-slide, but Roman loves it. Charlie prefers to just stick his hand or toy into the spray.

On Wednesday, I attended my last class for my Master's. I'm done! Had to pose with St. Francis of Assisi before I left campus. Although I'm not Catholic, my Latin teacher in high school was always a big fan of St. Francis. And plus, I drove past this little grove on my way to park for every. single. class.

Doug decided to begin Tang Soo Do lessons as well, and went to his first class Thursday with Roman. They're allowed to wear t-shirts instead of the do-bak (jacket) in the summer.

Charlie continues to demonstrate his bizarre love of kitchenware. He has shown attachment to wooden spoons, a spatula, and a spaghetti scooper (also a vegetable peeler, but we had to nix that). Today it was a plastic fork he was given at a picnic around 5pm. He never let it go. And by demonstrating love, I mean you can't take it away from him. He screamed in the crib because Doug took the fork away. Finally we gave in, as evidenced here:

We did finally take it away after I shot this photo, as we are very aware that pokey things aren't a good idea in the crib.

Lastly, I had to take a shot of our beautiful silver maple in the front yard. It has afforded me days of shade as I watch Charlie toddle around the front yard, or Roman ride his scooter up and down the sidewalk. So this is the view from our deck, looking straight up. I love this tree.
