Tony working on his summer reading!
I kind of like this picture because it shows Tony working on his summer reading very diligently! 😉 More than that, though, I kind of like the disembodied hand. It looks like Thing, from the Adams Family. If you remember the Adams Family, then surely, you’ll remember Thing.

Anyway, I didn’t have much to talk about today except about how slowly things are going in the blogsphere. Even some of the more prolific posters are not posting so much! I wonder what causes the slow-down. Probably more opportunity to be outside, rather than at the computer. Less time spent photographing, because of the heat, or who knows what else!

It’s hard to believe that school will start in about another 5 weeks. We moved Tony from public school to an independent school and that has been quite a ordeal. The admissions process was pretty long, but certainly worth it in the end. I think that he’ll be happy there. The curriculum is certainly more challenging; also, the class sizes are much smaller (6 – 15), instead of the 30+ that he had in public school.

On the basketball front, we are headed to West Virgina for a ‘Showcase’ tournament. This is where some of the most competitive teams come to compete. We leave on Sunday, drive to Morgantown, WV (yeah, I know! West Virginia!), then do the basketball thing on Monday and Tuesday, then it’s back home on Wednesday. There seems to always be something going on with basketball.

I’ll be taking my camera to WV, as well be nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, so there should be some scenery.

So, what’s got you busy this summer?

Speaking of busy! Come to think of it, we still need to do some college visits! It’s good that I still don’t have a job right now. I don’t have time to work!!! I do have an interview, though, at 2:00 PM, in about 55 minutes. It’s for an out of town job, but, you gotta do what you gotta do!

Serious art?
