randomness from this week..

wow what a whirlwind!
so much happening this week.
It feels kind of weird because so many kids/college students are just getting done with school
 and have a slower pace for the summer now, and my 'busy season' is just beginning--eek!
I keep trying to remind myself it won't slow down and from now on
 the summer will be jam-packed and the fall crazy as well.
Seriously though, it was so nice to have such a long break for so long this winter/spring...
I needed it and am so excited for everything else the rest of the year,
even though it will be challenging to stay on top of everything! :P

so excited to celebrate the graduation of these girls--Johanna and Amanda tonight!
they decided to do a combined open house and it is actually Amanda's birthday today too, so that makes things extra fun. :)
