I think this time of year gets pretty crazy for a lot of people -- school ends, graduation parties begin, and time flies by before you know it. High school kids are getting ready to transition to college and college kids are all worrying about their futures. Then there are the concerned parents who just want their kids to be happy and grow and succeed. Today was a nice break from the busy week we have planned around graduation. We spent the day kayaking, stuffing our faces at a grad party, and having dinner with my brother's girlfriend and her sweet family. I'm really thankful for days like this; amidst a hectic week we had a day to relax and enjoy the people around us.
p.s. If you're not able to escape from the stress, I've included a picture of a 9 week old Yellow Lab who decided to come visit. Hope that brightens your day a bit. :)
