I’m going to give you a warning right away–this post is anything but clean. It’s crazy and all over the place–spring is after fall and winter in the midst of summer. But that’s how life is, right? Craziness.

And so. This year. . .

I was in melodramas!

Our annual home school melodrama: Virtue Always Triumphs!

Us!
Sophia wanted to draw me, so she took a picture with my camera to copy (first photo). Liam thought it hilarious, and so we took a photo of him the same way (last photo). And I took a picture of Sophia because, well, she’s adorable. And insistent.

I was put on trial.

And I found my dream house:

We decided the owner must be related to us: In the middle of a small town, he had a large backyard with rhubarb and bees, and flowers and vines everywhere.

We had a wedding!

Getting succulents ready for the tables!

My niece and I played dress-up afterwards.

First she was the bride. . .
First she was the bride in Aunt Bethie’s wedding tulle. . .
. . .Then she decided I was the bride, and she was the flower-girl, just like in Auntie Bethie's wedding.
