Happy Summer


I don’t always blog with a baby on my lap…but when I do, I like to photograph it!

I hope all of you school based SLPs are loving your summer break.  What are your plans? My hubby just started Pastoring a church in a very, very small town on a lake in the mountains.  Pretty much in the middle of nowhere.  Our summer plans consist mostly of church stuff, a few weddings, and hopefully lots of family get-togethers.

Where I live, in the winter, everything looks so barren.  No leaves on trees, no green grass, and lots of brown everywhere you look.  Then once spring arrives, the green begins to return, the trees have their glorious leaves and colorful blossoms…it makes me so happy.
