Sunny May, part two

Linlee joined her sister outside today (whoohoo!), so I grabbed my camera for a few more pics…  Penny loves her big, stuffed mouse.  Happy puppy.

Sunny May

We are ending the month with warm, sunny weather…    I’m hoping to finally have a dog who will swim, but so far Penny was only interested in drinking from the pool. I wish Linlee had joined Holly outside, but she prefers to put on her Cinderella costume every day after school (for the last two and …

Real Life

 I almost didn’t post this picture because it is not of two happy girls smiling at the camera.  One child is very unhappy about being touched by her sister.  The sister decided to give the camera a sassy wink.  This is real life.
