Summer Days with Aunt Joy

Hammin it upSummer is slowly winding down, but Ian’s soaking as much of it in as he can.  We’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had much of a chance to stop and share all of our goings on.  Hopefully I can do a bit of catching up since things will slow down a bit next week when life as usual resumes.  Some of the highlights: the kitchen is FINISHED!  I’ll try to provide pictures of the completed project next week; Ian’s settled in well in Pre-School; I’m teaching 2 courses this fall (one is upper division!) while advising full-time; TTU football starts tomorrow night; and finally, Brinn and I are going to meet my dad for dinner tonight when we pick Ian up from his Aunt Joy.

Brinn met Joy early this morning so that Ian could head off for a day of fun in the sun.waterslide  Aunt Joy always likes to dress Ian super cute, and this little ham doesn’t seem to mind posing for pictures.

Ian’s been getting a little upset when Brinn or I drop him off lately, and especially cries at pre-school, but this morning he was a brave boy and never started to tear up.  I think it’s because he knows he’s going to have a blast with Joy.  She only takes him to do the funnest stuff.

Today she took Ian to the Knoxville zoo to enjoy the splashpad.  This particular splashpad comes complete with water slides!

towelI haven’t heard the story yet on how well Ian enjoyed the water slide, but the pictures seem pretty indicative that he was having a good time!

And now I’ve got to wrap up my break from work to get ready to head off for an academic briefing with women’s basketball.  Check back in the not too distant future for catch-ups from our crazy summer.

“For in Calormen, story-telling (whether the stories are true or made up) is a thing you're taught, just as English boys and girls are taught essay-writing. The difference is that people want to hear the stories, whereas I never heard of anyone who wanted to read the essays.” ― C.S.
