I haven't really felt the need to tell a story or express an opinion on anything. Nothing. Newp.
But I'll update you anyway. Jake started his internship with a firm last week. He loves it. It challenges him, and he's doing well. Plus, they take him out to lunch every day. That would make me love a job too. We're getting use to not seeing him at home as much. We were very spoiled to have a pretty easy semester (the one before it just about burnt him out), and now we're back to reality. He gets a little over an hour each day with Tessa, which is a lot better than nothing. Also, his weekends are work and study free, and that's nice.
I have been doing my mama thing. I've been working on little projects here and there too. Sewing out of necessity and for fun, working on projects that have been unfinished for too long, family history tidbits, cooking out of necessity and for fun, yard stuff, church calling, etc. Hey, remember those hard to kill petunias I planted? Yeah, me too. And, yes, I did water them.
Here are some more pictures of Tessa. She loves to be outside, and is very vocal about it, and she loves to munch --in this case she saw me going through a cookbook and after pretending to eat a couple of the dessert pictures, she repeatedly asked for a cookie (coku). So, I made her some. Uhhh...what else? Her favorite song right now is "The Itsy Bitsy Spider", and she's been taking longer to go to sleep at night because she won't stop talking to herself. She has another silly face to add to the repertoire that keeps us laughing. This one consists of gritted teeth, wide eyes, and a lengthened neck. She's such a ham.
