Yesterday MJ, mom and I had a fabulous time in Boston. We went to see The Col.or Pur.ple. The show was absolutely FANTASTIC!!! We left in the morning and took the train down which is really nice because you don't have to worry about driving. For once the weather was beautiful all morning. We had lunch here:
Then we did some shopping here:
It only rained a tiny bit when we got out of the show, but not even enough to take out our umbrellas. We did a bit more shopping after the show to kill time before the train left to take us home. We had a great girls day out!
As for today, here is our weather forecast:
Patchy fog late this morning. Showers likely. Isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. Near steady temperature in the mid 60s. Northeast winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain 70 percent.
Oh, yipee - more rain - I can't stand it anymore. It should be sunny and in the 80's - we haven't seen but maybe 2 or 3 days like that ALL MONTH!! The forecast for the week doesn't look much brighter...

Here we are heading to the school:
And here is the graduate and future photographer (that is what her star said she wants to be when she grows up!)
In other news - the sun has peeked out a few times this morning! We have even caught a few glimpses of blue sky - something we haven't seen for weeks now. I honestly have no idea where my sunglasses are because it has been so long since I've had to use them! It is already 73* which is higher than we've seen in a long time as well. Ir eally wish summer would hurry up and arrive at our doorstep!

We both had to get up early today as I had to have some blood work, we both had meetings with the superintendant, then MJ ran some errands while I went to the vet to get MORE meds for Willy who has decided to sport a fever again. UGGGHHHH! I am so tired of him being sick - he was on the up and up when all of a sudden he had a fever Sunday and then again today. We are adding another antibiotic to his regime and hopefully that will help.
Tomorrow we get to celebrate with our favorite five year old Olivia at her Kindergarten Graduation. That will be lots of fun and we'll go out to lunch with her afterwards.
Looking forward to the possibility of some sun later this week and at least it is supposed to be nice on Saturday when we go to Bost.on for the day!

However, we decided that since we aren't going camping, we need to still have something fun to do. So, we bought tickets to see The Co.lor Pu.rple in Bos.ton next weekend. We are going to go with my mom and it should be tons of fun!
Let's see, what else? Willy is MUCH better finally! We have to take him for one more blood check on Thursday and that will hopefully be the last one. The most exciting news around here is the fact that we have 1/2 day of school left tomorrow and then we are on SUMMER VACATION! Good times!
That's all from here.....

When everyone is tired!
Hey, might as well use the new pool as a water bowl.
Playing in the hose.
Helping put the new cushions on the gazebo furniture.
As you can see - they are such great helpers! Willy is feeling MUCH better and got a good report from the vet on Thursday - he gained 3.5 pounds in 6 days - I'll say he's feeling better!
MJ is on her way into school for a few hours today (yuck, on a Sat...) but the end of the year brings so much work that for sanity's sake, she'll try to get some of it done. I'm staying home and puttering around here to get some stuff done...

The following is an excerpt from Governor Lynch's statement after he signed the bill into law today. I think it is very poignant and shows that he truly does serve the people of NH!
It is my hope, and my belief, that New Hampshire will again come together to embrace tolerance and respect, and to stand against discrimination.
That has how we in New Hampshire have always lived our lives and that is how we will continue as we move forward.
Most families in New Hampshire will awaken tomorrow, go to work and to school, and feel no impact from what we have accomplished today.
But for some, they will awaken tomorrow knowing we have said to them that they are equal, that they have the same rights to live and to love as everyone else.
Today is a day to celebrate in New Hampshire. Today should not be considered a victory for some and a loss for others.
Today is a victory for all the people of New Hampshire, who I believe, in our own independent way, want tolerance for all.
That is truly the New Hampshire way.
