another week gone by?!
My mom's school is holding its May Fest today, and this photo shows the stage being prepared. Pretty amazing, huh? You can tell you're in Hawaii when the set for your grade school show looks like this. Or when rehearsals consist of "hula practice and more hula practice," as she reported in an email.
The week sped by quickly, in part because helping Emily to get settled has not been without challenges. I'd forgotten what it can be like to have a new pet. I adopted Izzy nearly 12 years ago, and Maisie was and is so easy (other than her constant hunger and the attendant need to secure all food). Let me just say, I am even more in awe of my friends who are managing the far more daunting feat of parenting new babies (that includes you, Grace and Courtney!).
