Getting the grad ready

Getting the grad ready, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

(Yes, that is Caitrin mugging for the camera...)

Today Johannah graduated from high school! Wonderful day together. Here are my favorite "mother love" photos of the day. I'm still reeling from the event of it - the ending of something, the beginning of something else.

on Jacob's first cell phone. We've had a hard time prying his hands loose ever since. This photo is from Friday morning.

Last ride in the car...

Last ride in the car..., originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Jacob is exiting the Freshman building for the last time, riding home in the car with me. Next year, the big yellow bus will come for him as he heads into the 10th-12th grade high school.

For the photo: I wanted him to be further out of the building before I depressed the shutter button, but the bus started to move and I needed it in the mirror. :) So that's Jacob, walking out the door, even though he's not as clear as I wish he were.

Irish wake for my U2 iPod

Sad Apple, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

You never ever want to see this sad face on your iPod. You especially don't want to see it on your one and only U2 iPod. :( I am iPod-less just as summer and running season begin. Life is horibbly unfair. The Apple gods clearly are on vacation in Vanuatu.

P.S. I have consulted with the Apple Geniuses and the only solution is to either replace the hard drive for $249.00 OR recycle the iPod and replace it with the new video U2 iPod for $249.00. So as soon as I have $249.00, you know where I'll be...

My specialty

Strawberry Shortcake, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Our favorite dessert around here. Recipe for the shortcake comes from Fannie Farmer Cookbook (if you're interested) and we use real heavy whipping cream.

Our Memorial Day treat.

The YMCA pool opened this weekend. Caitrin and I are soooo happy.

And here's my happy girl.
