(Butterfly at Girl Scout camp, circa 2003. Another closet treasure.)
The jackets were cleaned. The flannel was back in the linen closet. The fleece had flown.
But it's May 3rd and the heater is on.
Oh, to be in flip-flops, now that Spring is here.

I decided to clean out my closet. It was time. We've lived here seven years, after all. I found a box with twenty-two rolls of undeveloped film.
I decided to get them developed. It was time for that, too.
Here are some of the treasures I discovered.
Julia. (above) We lost her in the spring of 2009 at the age of 17. I cried for months.
Still not over it.
Webelos I Pine Wood Derby. Sal won first place. Tiger was overwhelmed by the moment. Or he was cranky and needed a nap. Whatever works for you.
Butterfly and company. No explanation needed.
And, finally, the Best Christmas Pageant Ever. This was the one were Tiger (a.k.a. The Sheep) slugged the donkey on the steps of the altar.
I can laugh...now.

(Tiger and Butterfly on The Farm last summer.)
2 years. Wow.
So, I got a little busy with life.
I've heard that women can have it all, and that's a lovely thought really. I just don't want to have to do it all, if you know what I mean. And I had a LOT to do.
Something had to give. It was blogging or the kids, and I can't unplug the kids.
Sal is in college. Yeah, I know. He'll be twenty this year. Twenty.
Butterfly is a Junior. Oh, boy. She is Sweet Sixteen. Oh, BOY!
Tiger starts high school in the Fall. Help me. Please.
The C.F.O. and I are still chugging along. Getting older. (And hopefully wiser, but there are days when I question this.)
We've lost my Grandma and my Aunt S. Heaven is in BIG trouble.
Aunt the Major and Minor B are back from the far East.
Dog Sunday and Scratchy still aren't on speaking terms.
Life on the Planet continues.
I hope to share a little of it with you again.

(Butterfly and Tiger in the Ingalls dugout barn.)
Tonight was Church.
Friday, Butterfly and Tiger have a performance.
Saturday, Tiger has rehearsal, and THEN we have...
Sal's Eagle Court of Honor!
One day I'll miss being this busy.

Sal passed his Eagle Board of Review.
That is all.
It is enough.

After an exciting, whirlwind visit to the Promised Land (Louisiana), real life has landed with a thud on my doorstep.
Today will be busy.
Butterfly has physical therapy. She hyper-extended her elbow. Ligaments were altered. Ouch.
Sal needs new Scout shorts, and needs to drop off his Eagle Scout paperwork.
I have to write a letter of recommendation for him. I hate writing letters of recommendation, but I'm sort of obligated here.
Butterfly needs a new bathing suit. Really, she does.
And then there is the usual laundry and cleaning. Oh, yeah! And school work, too!
Complicating matters - eminent flooding in Memphis. Maybe I should take care of the going to Memphis part of the list first.
Kids! To the van!!!!
