Wrapping up our state homeschool convention, I snapped this image of my friend Lori who assisted at Diana Waring's speaker table, just a few tables down from my speaker, Matthew McNatt's, table.

I love getting candid images when I attend an event; this image was one of the few I took, because I did more than attend! I do have an official title--ICHE Coordinator for Special & Struggling Learners. But at the convention, I take care of my speakers, attend all their workshops, see to their needs, man their tables if need be, and run around taking care of all the little things that pop up unexpectedly. If time permits, I also visit the Oasis--a separate area where new homeschoolers can stop by to ask questions of veteran homeschoolers. Many times, there are parents who have lots of questions regarding their special/struggling children, and it's such a blessing to be able to listen to their stories, answer questions, and offer encouragement. And to pray with them!
Whoa. I digressed there! Back to the week's images... It's so nice to come home from working so hard to a flower garden that takes care of itself! The beard tongue below has become one of my favorites in my sun garden. It is just one plant, but new blooms emerge in purple, then brighten to pink and become lighter as they "age." There are usually three or four colors among my beard tongue plants, and they're so pretty together!

On a flower kick, I trotted off to the back yard to capture some daisies in bloom. Boy, was it HOT that day!

There's a little airport across the street from our house (and behind the Meijer grocery store). I think it's funny that it's called Clow International Airport, but supposedly planes can make it to Canada, so it is an international airport. They put on an air show each June, and I caught this T-2 Texan flying overhead, with its wheels folded in as it flew around.

As I watered my plants, this friendly robin kept coming by to look for goodies in the ground. He seemed totally unafraid of me, getting to within five or six feet of where I was watering. Of course, I ran inside, grabbed my camera, and continued watering (and weeding!) with my Ellie around my neck to capture this happy bird.
 June 8 -- Friendly robin
The radish harvest has begun! The image below is my third radish harvest, and I have picked another bunch since then. They are "hot," too, but taste awesome dipped in my homemade creamy garlic salad dressing.

Then, the better part of last week was spent making preparations for Danny's graduation celebration this past Sunday. Danny and I had fun going through my scrapbooks, laughing over little-boy pictures--especially the six-month-old with fat cheeks, sitting in a high chair with sweet potatoes all over his face. :)
 June 10 -- Graduation preparations
This week, I'm relaxing! Well, until Friday, anyway, when Danny has all four wisdom teeth removed. I need some down time after several weeks of GOING. I'll let you know how much I actually "relaxed" next week when I check in!
