With this one officially off from school for the first time since she was four years old (in the summer time, mind you), I feel like we've been waiting 9 years for a real summer vacation.

(Don't talk it up to much with the other one. We're playing it down a bit 'round these parts.)

Summerschool

This one below will be at work a lot. That looks something like this:

Summerboy

And this one below has many delightful things on her plate this summer, that includes, in no specific order:
• completing all the class content for Me: The Abridged Version (registration opening in early July)
• various freelance design jobs throughout the next three months (thank you, design gods of the universe, for keeping me out of a corporate job for the time being.)
• keeping my house clean and my family fed.
• trying to shed pounds from my already too bogged down frame.
• ensuring all shots of are taken from above, and in black and white.

Here's to summer break.

    Love the picture of Dan at work. For some reason I am always surprised when you mention he owns a coffee shop. I know that, you have talked about that but it still always surprises me.

    Sounds like all blessings to me, Cathy.

    “ensure all shots are taken from above and in black and white” Have to remember that one. I will be taking your workshop in September and have bought the book you recommended “a ordinary life” (I think I just got the concept!!! dumb me didn’t get it to page 30) Here’s my problem- finding and taking photos of myself. Any suggestions?? I already love the above one…

    Hey! I didn’t know Dan owned a coffee shop near the U of M. (Had to Google to find out where it was.) Shall have to stop by next time I’m on campus.

    The shot of your DH is priceless, I think the black board needs a “designers” touch though.

    Cathy,
    I am absolutely stunned, the last pictures you posted of your daughter, she looked like a little girl. Now she looks like she’s going to become a woman. What happened?

    Hey! I love the Truman quote on the blackboard in the coffee shop! I am a huge presidential quote fan but my favs are all funny things said. (well, funny to me at least) I like these, for example, “Don’t call me Dick!” (Nixon) “I need a strange piece of a** every day or I get a terrible headache.” (JFK) “He wouldn’t know how to pour piss out of a boot if the directions were written on the heel.” (Johnson, who has the funniest in my opinion. He was speaking about one of his advisors in this quote.)

    What’s the music playing during the ad for “Me: The Abridged Version” at BPS? Love it! {and the class looks neat, too}…
