This was my reward for weeding a neglected bed of irises in the sun and 90+ degree heat on the Fourth of July...
Do you see him? Right in the center of the photo is a tiny, one-inch long praying mantis!
Equally cute is Little Miss Anna this past weekend, beaming when she saw that Grandpop drove down to PA with me to surprise her at the Rock School.
It was a whirlwind weekend of moving Anna into a single (roommate issues, don't ask), taking her out to eat, painting pottery (one of her favorite ways to unwind - unfortunately I didn't get any photos of the creative process), and swimming!
She was rested and relaxed when we left late Sunday afternoon. We won't see her again until the final Rock School performances at the end of July (sad face here) but I know she's happiest when she's dancing, so I'm happy too!
