The Dog Days of Summer!

It's HOT!  That about sums it up in my neck of the woods!!  The dog days of Summer are in full force.  Speaking of dog days, I thought I'd share a few photos of the pack chilling in the backyard.  I use the term "chilling" loosely.

Smokey loves to sun.....but...this is almost torture!

Mac says it's never too hot to chase those annoying squirrels!

And here's my little poser.  He has limited tolerance for the heat....

Unless there's a bone to chew, that is...

Can we go in now?

As for the rest of us.... Trish has a new job that looks really fun and promising.  Connor, morphing into typical teenage behavior, rarely ventures out if his room except to eat, swim (once) and visit a friend..  Sam is opting for indoor activities during this triple-digit heat bubble.  We took a few cute photos of the 5th grade Luau that marks the end of elementary school at Wyatt.

Limbo, Hula Hoops and Snow Cones ushered him out of elementary school and into Summer.  Me, I'm catching up on things I haven't had time for during the school year, and beginning to mark things off my Summer To-Do List.

Goodbye Elementary School!

How time does fly!  Last night Sam graduated from 5th grade.  The soon-to-be middle schooler was so nervous he dropped and crushed his glasses pre-lineup and survived the ceremonies half-blind.  I hate to say it but the broken glasses probably enabled him to not pass out from anxiety while on the stage.  He rocked!

This fall he will join Connor at middle school, and the only elementary schooler left will be moi as substitute teacher.  That's my niche so I'm being held back.....forever!  :) 

We're very proud of Sam.  He had a much better school experience this year and is actually looking forward to next year. 

Sunday afternoon Bryan graduates from high school in San Antonio.  I'm very proud of him, also.  I hate missing the chance to see him as he walks across the stage, but the timing made it too difficult for me to get down and back for the last day of school here.  Monday is our 'snow day'. 

Congratulations to both my graduates!  I'm a very proud grandma!
