We’re approaching the end of our school year and I am tired. TIE. URD. When people used to ask me “how I do it all” with homeschooling and working from home and blah-blah-blah, I used to joke that I wasn’t sure and that perhaps I would collapse from exhaustion on my 40th birthday.

I’m going to be in Canada the first week of July. See you there? Dan has been teasing me about the sled dogs and wool coats that I will encounter during my stay in the Great White North. We finally got a bit of summer weather here in New Hampshire. Say it isn’t so.

Ambrose and Stephen are having a competition this summer to see who can get the best photo of a butterfly. Here is one of Ambrose’s recent efforts. A painted lady? Not sure, but it’s pretty.

Is that seven already? I was just getting started …
