Reunited.

One of my favorite things is the very first hug you get from your kids after a week at camp. If I were Julie Andrews, I would put it into a song.

But I'm not so...yeah.

My friend, Lauren, thankfully snapped these as we were greeting our kids on Saturday at Pine Cove.




She didn't get one of Tee because, even though he will still, at 10, run up, hug me and kiss me on the lips, he's fast as lightning and darted back to relish the last moments of fun with his new friends.

Reuniting is so sweet.

Do you think it will be as sweet when we reunite with Julius, who escaped from his cage this morning?

Julius, you remember, is Tee's pet.

Snake.


Shiver.

Traci said...

Seriously, the snake is loose? Do you need a place to convalesce?

Jill said...

What is it with snakes escaping???? The one near our house that escaped happened to be a burmese python and happened to be hungry and it ended with very unfornuate results for a family and the loss of their two year old. Horrible.

I just gotta say...I feel like we are old friends. I read your blog occassionally and it reminds me of friendship and how important that is in women's lives. Thanks for the laughs and the fun stories. I love reading.

So, you have a snake loose in your house? And you're still there? :)

Yikes! I cant believe the snake is loose!

I'm afraid I would have to sleep in a hotel until the snake was found. Not kidding, either.

Snake in house = no humans in house!

You amaze me, especially when I think about a snake being lose in your house and you continuing to reside there.
