This is why we haven't blogged

That's as exciting as it's been.
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.

Congrats to your hubby on the new gig. And your daughter is so beautiful, her facial expressions are classic. Don't worry about not knowing what to blog about. I have those moments too. It's just nice to see that your family is doing well.

Do you remember that time in high school, when you and I left during lunch or a period at the end of the school year and we were in the parking lot looking for your car? And I said, "Maren, is that your car, with your name on it?" And you were like, "where?" You probably don't, but it's o.k., that was one of the giggle times in high school that I look back at and say to myself "good times."

Have a great weekend.

It's crazy how we see our husbands more during school than after the semester is done and even after graduation. Chris gets about an hour with our kids as well each day. I thought the working world would be a little bit more flexible!!! call me anytime!

Christie- that story would not surprise anyone who knows me. How sad. And how funny too. :)
